Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1.  
  2. Good man!
     
  3. Congratulation, Sir. Well done.
    That said. I've lost my midget. P'raps you could put in a word?
     
  4. Well done to Prince William of Wales! And he added a real rescue run to the day.

    Must be a bit odd when someone realizes that a prince is the helo driver.
     
  5. As long as one doesn't let on. It simply isn't done.
     
  6. Well if I was in deep doo doo in a small boat at sea and I needed helicopter rescue I wouldn't care who was driving it.

  7. If a septic like me knows what the boy looks like I would guess that most hominy sorts would.
     
  8. So he's become a taxi driver for knobheads stuck on Crib Coch?
     
  9. As long as the Pilot can read the CWP properly he'll be fine.
     
  10. Excellent he can now sign off and get a job with the newly privatised Air Sea Rescue service.
     
  11. F-me! So HRH gets away with not even a mention while all the blame is piled on the captain and the nav?
     
  12. The Captain remains responsible no matter who is driving. This applies at sea also - which is why captains of ships under the nominal control of port authority pilots twitch like sh'=house rats throughout. Having said that he complied with the maxim that goes: Any landing you walk away from is a good one.
     
  13. True that. Still, seemed a bit unfair..

  14. Turning to HRH in the ensuing pile of teddybear fluff and tyre-smoke and saying "You ****!" isn't much of a career-enhancer either.
