Pugh, Pugh, Hitler

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. Sorry to interrupt everyone's enjoyment. Yesterday, someone posted with a very funny graphic in their signature block that showed the Trumpton Firemen with Hitler as the last one. Does anyone know who it was, or where I can get a copy?
     
  2. CQMS - thanks very much. Just amused my son no end!

    Your son - yeah right! 8) :p
     
  4. Nice but……………..being of that era, IIRC the Trumpton Firemen were:

    Pugh
    Hugh
    Barney
    McGrew
    Cuthbert
    Dibble
    and
    Grub (Hitler)
     
  5. It's....

    Pugh
    Pugh
    Barney
    McGrew
    Cuthbert
    Dibble
    Grub

    Pugh + Pugh were twins.
     
  6. It's actually:

    Pugh
    Pugh
    Barney McGrew
    Cuthbert
    Dibble
    and
    Grub (Hitler)

    The Pugh boys are twins, and 'Barney McGrew' is one person. I think I may have just confirmed Auld Yin's suspicions.

    Edited to add: And Barney McGrew is misidentified in the gif, he is the one with the beard!

  8. So how come two people used line up when Barney McGrew's name was called and after they lined up there was 8 of them (including the IC)?

  11. Well, you learn something new every day. I always thought it was Barney Mulgrew.

    Every day's a schoolday on ARRSE. Anyone remember the name of the Firemaster? He was the only one not named in the rollcall.
     
  12. Cancel my last!

    According to the Trumpton Web Site (not Wiki) there was only seven.
     
  13. Captain Flack.
     
  14. I think you'll find that the 'IC' was the venerable Captain Flack!

    Edited to say: Damn, out-Trumptoned
