shamrocks

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. i need help if possible to get shamrock for a paddies day parade. i have been quoted at £ 1 a sprig which is a bit steep as i need 600.
    does any one out here have a good source for shamrocks?
    Cheers

    Queen Mum used to present them, dig her up and ask, if you are being asked to wear something then God will provide, God being the QMan of course!
     
  3. Judging by your handle, have you tried the RSM of the Queens Royal Hussars?
     
  4. Use water cress. No one will notice the difference, and between now and 17 March you could probably grow enough for 600.

    Alternatively, call QM 1IG, they will definitely have their shit together on the shamrock front.
     
  5. Long shot - if you work in an airport or the airline industry, get to know the Aer Lingus station manager (I guess Ryanair would be as helpful) buy them a pint and ask for some shamrock - you will be given more shamrock than you can handle.
