Sir Michael Caine

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by fairycakes, Nov 2, 2009.

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. Just viewed Sir Michael Caine article on sky news.
    This man mentions briefly this pish poor Government, taxes and the direction our country is heading. This follows Sting patronizing performance on The Andrew Marr show. If ARRSE decides we require a Colonel-in-Chief he would get my nomination. Sorry Clarkson.

    He may be a luvvie now, but he also served as a Royal Fusilier and saw action against the Chinese 'human wave' in Korea. When it comes to war films, he knows whereof he thespianizes.
     
  3. Now that's not a bad idea at all! I wonder if we could get some sort of consensus on whether Sir Michael Caine should be the honorary "Colonel-in-Chief of ARRSE". He's got all the right qualifications:

    He was a Bridsh Armee squaddie who actually experienced combat;
    He's a "normal" geezer, no side or cant to him;
    He genuinely cares about folks;
    He's starred in so many war films and was always totally convincing.

    Maybe we should ask him what he thinks about having such an "'onna" bestowed upon him. Perhaps the COs could put a tentative foot in the water there.

    Just a thought.

  9. Sir Michael for Colonel in Chief of ARRSE? Where do I put my X? 8) :D

    Clarkson as 2iC has it's merits, but I fear he will be too busy as the first ARRSE PM following the glorious Revolution... :twisted:
