Royal Tournament

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by scorched_earth, Apr 23, 2006.

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. Recently bought a DVD on The Royal Tournament and realised how much of a crying shame it is we dont do it anymore. Why did we lose it? Probably money yes, but why the hell cant it be funded by the national lottery fund? Oh thats right because theyre too busy giving money to Man U , because its like they need it. Surely the Government could fund it? No because they are too busy spending money on ridiculously childish party political broadcasts involving reptiles! ( Rant rant rant.....)

    Just to add, was anyone here ever involved with the Tournament? I personally wasnt but wouldnt mind hearing views and experiences/stories etc..........

    The Gun Run at HMS Collingwood is just that a 'run'.

    In Belfast they spent something like £60K on a large ceramic fish yet refused to give money to a home for ex-servicemen in the U.K beacuse it was'nt a viable cause. You have to be a far left wing multi-racial lesbian feminist vegitarian artist to stand a chance with the lottery!!

  9. I was working there 1989 when i was a Junior Leader. We were the arena party and i can honestly say, it was one of the best times i had while serving. It was especially good watching Anthea Turner get blown up from the back of a bedford, and chuckling at the aftermath. Stuck up b1tch she was.

  13. :D

    She was there with Jenny Powell for some Saturday morning kids show. Jenny Powell was really nice and chatted to everyone whereas Turner was a right cow, bossing people around and being quite nasty. When she got blown up, she cried "My face, my face. It's my career" or some shoite like that, much to the amusement of us present. It's probably on You Tube, i've never bothered to look.
