Ruperts and Rodneys

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Tim_Lynch, Jul 4, 2010.

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. OK Sprog question but what exactly is the difference between a Rodnley and a Rupert?

    I was talking to a group of ex-forces lads and everybody seemed to have a different idea. One said a Sandhurst type, another said a Rodney was a Rupert up from the ranks (which is what I've always thought), somebody else said a Rodney was a pusser Rupert, somebody else went on about Rodneys being in the CSM/RSM league.

    So which is it?

    While we're at it, who was your best/worst example of the breed?
  2. You've all spelt that wrong, it should be spelt phonetically ie 'Wupurt'
  3. OK, nice to know I was right, shame I obviously couldn't find my backside with both hands and a map. I swear that didn't come up on the site search before I posted!

    Now where's that Sandhurst application.......
  4. Both are taker's, one just does it with a smile on their face!
  5. ...but which one?
