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. We all know STAB, weekend warrior, etc, but what other names are the RMR known as?
  2. Fruity-boys.
  3. what? Just laughed so hard til I got chest pains!! :p

    How did that name come about?
  4. 'Rubber Dagger' if memory serves
  5. RGSM
    Don't know, but I have decided that, collectively, our local lot will be henceforth known as the Southwark Wet Infantry.
  6. Roger Dodger ATKO it's Rubber Daggers or just cabbage heads :)
  7. I had a mate from 148 bty that went selection and the SBS boys used to call him that, not sure if t was in ref to him being an army commando or the 148 quasi-SF role
  8. Careful, don't confuse "Cabbage heads" with "Cabbage Mechanics" (Chefs).
  9. Don't won't to get this off topic, but I thought Chefs were 'combat egg welders'?

    Aren't Booty's just Booty's, full-time, part-time, what's the difference?
  10. The RMR only wear drag at weekends.

  11. Royal Marines, either regular or reserve, are Bootnecks. What people who haven't passed the Commando Course call them is of little interest to them.
  12. Good answer!
  13. Yep, thats a bite.
  14. oooooohhhhh hark at him!!! one doth protest too much, fine sir :)
  15. Lat one I met ( on a course ) I called Martin.

    One of his muckers is an airline pilot, on the same mortar course as me. Everyone knows the sing-song speach pilots use when talking to passengers in the airplane; the poor bloke could not stop using this style when giving eg. fire missions on the net... I had trouble in speaking after a while as I was laughing too much....
