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. I was following threads about filling ditches & the terrible flooding in Cumbria recently & had a dream about filling the flood defences with politicians & civil servants to improvise footbridges.Then,I thought what a dreadfully uneven path-how about some of that metal road on a roll that RL drivers used to chase, in a panic,as it raced off the roof.But what the hell was the system (70's) called,apart from the obvious :slow: :?
  2. LRE - Launch Roller Equipment I think.
  3. Class 30 Trackway with Launch & Recovery Equipment
  4. Ta muchly-Asbach Uralt in very big bottles-mmmmmm brainkilling :slow:
  5. Oooh, Sapper porn Knocker!
  6. notice no pictures of ratchets spinning without any young sappers attached to them as normally happened
  7. better

  8. :lol: Ah good memories! Got caught out a couple of times in my younger years. Flying up in the air then landing like a pile of sh1te on the ground, only to be booted around the 4 tonner by the section banana for being a mong. :clap: :thumleft:
  9. LRE, happy days but totally banned now..........elf n safty dont you know.

    Still can use the MWT though.
  10. Didn't you always find the slots for the recovery ropes were always either filled with crap or bent to buggery and couldn't get the fixings in, especially at 2 in the morning after a bridge gallop.
  11. It was normally the driver not undoing the clamps and taking the last few panels off that i found amusing
  12. Brilliant! almost forgot about the old LRE! after every bridge build no Section Commanders could be found as they knew they'd get dicked for the Trackways and if they got the distance calcs wrong or some knobber forgot to loosen the clamps they would get crated 8)

    Upon seeing the Thread title I had vivid memories of racing around the NAAFI with an entire bogroll trailing from the mouth back to the Gents after 'eating' one of the mine swept pint glasses a couple of us had been doing all night, only instead of one of the girlie German thin glasses I mistakenly mineswept one of the heavy ones with the windows in and proceeded to chew on it only to cover the dance like your dad floor in claret!

    Once a Sapper and all that eh! 8O
  13. Found my old B3 notes the other day and there is a bit we did on the old Bristol Compressor, water sets etc. nostalgia swept over me. :wink:
  14. Hold left, Back right, hold Right, back left, Hold Left etc ,,
