RSMs Old and New Name and Shame

#1
This was ideaed (there is no such word) by another post concerning RSMS, new ones, who changes things that work. I remember one in particular who was not happy with a display gun at the camp gates in Osnatraz, been there for years at the camp gate, and he wasn't happy with its bearing. A bloody crane moved the thing about 3 feet......tax payers money!!!!!!

I remember learning bayonet drill on my Crew Commander's course at Hopton Barracks (C Bty/3RHA) in 1976.

"Wing Nut", the RSM, (ears like jug handles) came to berate us for being "idle" and was standing under the noses of the front rank, foaming at the mouth and waving his pace stick about.

He went very quiet, then very pale... Then our Bdr came and released the bayonet sticking through his hand from the SLR.

Anybody remember Paddy Steele from Woolwich in '73?

Fat Boy Lew*s 7 RHA, he was a obese bully boy BSM/RSM from start to finnish of his blinkered RA career, which rotated round rugby and his belly.

His ignorance and arrogant ways ensured that he failed the comission's board, oh how we laughed.....

His popularity was shown on the farewell to Aldershot parade when someone launched a pint pot at his sward.

Most of the blurkes got pay back his on his siblings............... :wink:

Would he have got RSM if he hadn't been skipper of the rugby team?

When his boy was 4 he used to get mates to offer the young lad a sweet. The boy was trained to reply "feck off you filthy pervert". Nice touch.

When I was GPO I remember meeting one of the Gnrs on the battery gun position, 2 weeks into an exercise, when Lew*s was TSM. The lad was retching violently. I said "Whats wrong with you Gnr Crxxxings?" He said: "Its Sergeant Major Lew*s Sir. (retch) He stuck his fingers up his arrse (retch) then he's just stuck them up my nose (vomit copiously)".

Answer NO

I was waiting with a large number of blokes from the brigade on Purple Star, we had been on the ground for a few days and due to crap admin hadnt recieved any water or ration resup.

Anyhow fat boy turned up at the same time as a patrol of P Troop who had procurred a jerry can of water. He roared at them to bring it to him. He then waddled about two paces into the bush off the tarmac and dropped his keks had a cr*ap and poured the water from the can on his arse whilst rubbing vigourously with bog roll. He left the said fallout on the surface so plenty of flies were buzzing around he then washed his hands with the remainder of the jerry can, and we are suppose to look up to the RSM.......

This was in front of a whole Coy Gp from 1 para, who also hadnt had water and were toilet trained. He wandered around with no webbing and his smock open for the remaining hours only stopping to ask us why we hadnt shaved...........

When the first C130 turned up he barged onto it bellowing I aint waiting I will miss my scoff..........

Boss Man that be Taff C*******s? of glass back fame that reguarly retched whilst walking down s*unk tree ave, Lille Bks?

Paddy finished as a Lt Col and then served as RAA secretary at Woolwich for quite awhile, certainly into 2000/2001. He might still be doing it, not sure. Good bloke though.

I was on Purple Star and remember that incident. Wasnt he also guilty of munching through a bag of cornbeef hash, finishing it, throwing it on the floor and kicking some sand over the packet, all infront of the same 1 Para Coy.

Keep North Carolina Tidy?

Ah fond memories of 7 Para Rha. Why did I ever leave?

I could have started this thread as :

RSM's : Professional soldiers or Victorian anachronisms?: DISCUSS.

I've only ever had fleeting contact with these peculiar types in the TA/ACF/ATC, and have not been very impressed at all.

I remember so called RSM in the ACF, who after inviting himself on my excecise, changing the lessons and plans to suit himself, but doing f uck all instructing himself thought it would be funny to destroy compo rations in front of hungry cadets after an arduous weekend excercise on CPTA.

He soon stopped laughing, when I, a newly appointed SI, turned to my cadets, and said: "If any of you have got a live round on you, I could, perhaps, shoot this fat stupid c unt right now."

Alas, after frantic webbing and bergan searches, no lives rounds could be found. The wee boys and girls did their best though!

He later tried to carpet me for insubordination, but I reminded him of his duty of care to cadets, and that their parents or the county commandant might not be too impressed fact that he had ruined what should have been an excellent weekends training for my sprogs, and that he wasnt even invited. He offered to apologise. I told him he must apologise to my cadets first, but he wouldnt do that. So i told him to f uck off, and that as far as I was concerned his authority was null and void. I later told my cadets to never accept any orders from him without my agreement first.

He got kicked out a year later for misappropriating a number of ACF weapons and loads of pyro. They were found in his house by the Fire brigade, who were called out to a fire in his son's bedroom!
