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:


    So if the box has been emptied .. how longer can Telic be supported?[/list]
  2. Speaking from my professions point of view. Our box was emptied a while a go. The TA/reservists take up a lot of the tours that we would otherwise be hammered for. However, they are running short of people deployable to Iraq, either due to failing medicals or employers not allowing them to deploy.

    So things are officially going to get worse.........nice eh! :roll:

    The fact they called me up was the barrell well and truely scraped. I dont know where the next lot of specialists are coming from, although I am sure the coal-face workers will pull together and get the job done to usual high standards.
  4. Maybe the Coal Seam is now running dry, or to put it another way. Once the bank account is empty that is it :evil:
  5. You have to remember that Agenda for Change may well exacerbate things. If our NHS counterparts are suddenly getting paid a decent wage which outstrips even us, then who will want to deploy if they are TA (and lose a decent wage!).

    I suppose they could hope for cloning technology to suddenly progress in leaps and bounds :roll:
  6. Do I detect a smidge of sarcasm D-L. Good to see you have a new job on the Lucozade advert though
  7. Sarcasm & cynicism! I'm a man of many talents, all of them useless :roll:

    Lucozade advert? Please enlighten me dear BB 8)
  8. It involves a microscope, periodic table, man using both and excited by it all :p

    Not all talents of yours are useless just most
  9. However I can still lick my eyebrows 8O

    EYEBROW, EYEBROW, you only have one!
  11. true, but I can still lick it :wink:

  12. Well Done! :wink:

    however, can you please shave your palms, and stop that drooling, your staff are starting to complain 8O
  13. You know quite well I can't stop the drooling, its genetic. As for complaints, they are not complaints but quite criticisms........well that's what my soliciter told me to say :wink:
