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. RIP indeed.

    Top prog was On The Buses.

    Who would have shagged Olive?

    Not this callsign.

    I also read that he was the first person in the world to use a cashpoint machine.

  2. RIP rest easy in valhalla i will call all females in my office "crumpet" as a mark of respect

    Ex soldier (well, REME, anyway) and a good comedian, but probably best known for the bus series. Did some good work with Benny Hill, before that one became a star. And of course, The Rag Trade.

    He was indeed the first person to use a cash point machine, being the celebrity who opened the very first one.
    A good comedian and a very nice man, by all accounts.
  6. Standby for the re-runs of On The Buses.
    And Varney t-shirts,mugs,mouse mat,pens.
  7. On The Buses - CLASSIC. I look forward to the re-runs.

    RIP Reg top entertainment

    P.S He was 50 when he made on the buses must have loved fooling about with all that 70's totty
  9. Crumpet mate crumpet
  10. Reg, top lad, fully agree with B.S
  11. RIP mate the outrage bus is stopping at your house tonight.

    BTW which one was he ?
  12. Plenty. I do believe she used to be a stripper in a, ahem, hostess club before she turned to acting.

    Amazing what a bit of make up in the wrong place and milk bottle glasses will do for a gal.
  13. IIRC she did some scutty pictures. I'd be impressed if anyone could dig them out of the Tinterweb.

    As for the prog, I remember thinking that I wanted to be a bus driver when I grew up.

    I'm still not sure what I'm going to do.
