QOY in York

Discussion in 'RAC' started by future_rupert, Nov 13, 2007.

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. Thinking of joining this lot. Any ex-regs with them, and could you give me a quick rundown of the unit? What are the YOs and ORs like? Any help would be great.

  2. Iserved with them as Gunnery PSI for 2 1/2 years mid 80's and had a fantastic time once I had adpated to the yeomanry way of doing things.

    IIRC, one their brethern made a fool of himself on that slags to Ladies programme about 3 - 4 years ago - clicky below. :oops:

    Linkety Link

    That being said that is the only bad press I have heard.

    Can anyone in the QOY reassure us that the specimen has left and stopped embarrassing you? :?

    In seriousness though, they have always seemed to be a good bunch and never heard anything bad about them (apart from the above mentioned exception that proves the rule).

    I think in fairness the one I saw was probably TA donkeywallopers(QOY either D Sqn or A Sqn?) but i agree he was a complete tool. He fell instantly in love for one of the geezerbirds and left a note tucked down her cleavage inviting her to marry him and enjoy a life of luxury - what a chod

    Is there a reshowing of this programme... I think there needs to be an opportunity to defend the Regiment's good name.

    Not QOY (not the chap everybody else is talking about anyway). QOY are safe. :D

    So Huzzah for QOY

    It was a very good unit when I was in it I enjoyed myself

    We can sit here on the keyboard all night but it is a recce reg so you might be as well getting a bit of practise in and going to see for yourself what it's like

    T_B_S - my bad. 1000 salaams to all outraged reagrding my last post.
  6. I take it you've left now fella
  7. Unfortunately, I seem to have missed this televisual gem and so have no idea who it was (although I have my suspicions).

    As for F-R's original question about Y-Squadron, take the advice and visit in person. We don't take just anyone y'know.
  8. I had the pleasure of working with a couple of the lads from QOY (Yorkshire SQN) at York earlier this year. They were smashing lads. Good blokes to have a pint with.

  9. A pint a pint, they used to drink like fish, but as said before great Squadron :D
  10. Ah yes but alas I no longer can drink like I used to.
