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. Hi,

    Anybody know the history of the sword used for this award?

    Thanking you.
     
  2. Hmmmm Sandhurst and Honour in the same sentence.... does not compute!
     
  3. There is no single sword - the sword of honour given to the winning Officer Cadet is a regimental sword for the regiment he is joining.
     
  4. Given the potential gripping, which is about to be delivered by the AcSM, I do'nt think THIS OCdt is in the frame...................

  5. Oh ok ... I'm not military I'm afraid so don't understand regiment set up etc ... there's a family rumour that my Great Grandfathers Officers sword was given to Sandhurst and awarded to the top passing out Officer ... assume they couldn't keep it?!! No idea.
    Anyway, he was with the REs and for a short period the RWFs.
    Cheers for the replies!
     
  6. ...although he should sort out his SD (needs pressing) and his No1 hat, which looks too small for his head!
     
  7. that hat is very silly!!
     
  8. Hat?
    Hat!!
    That is a very silly forage cap!!!
     
  9. Filbert was talking about Prince William i think!
     
  10. What ever you want to call it - it is too bloody small!!

    'You, scruffy AcSM, show hat properly fitted'
     
  11. That AcSM looks a total bag of sh*te. Looks like he slept in that outfit after a serious PU in the mess and is still wearing his party hat. He must have a bloody long first joint on his thumb...........look at the distance from the tip of the peak the end of his snot box.

    Shiner
     
  12. Who's going to tell him?
     
  13. ...errr...ummm
