Soldiers voices are now louder than ever

#3
It's quite a good article, but i've been a soldier for the best part of 18 years and I have never heard the word "Grouse"!

Is there some secret Grousing club that I have not been made aware of :D

'Grouse'..........never heard that one being used before. Did they just make that one up for effect?

grouse (v.)
"complain," 1887, British Army slang (first recorded by Kipling), of uncertain origin but perhaps from Norman Fr. dial. groucer, from O.Fr. groucier "to murmur, grumble," of imitative origin (cf. Gk. gru "a grunt," gruzein "to grumble").

There you are then.

tick, shinf, griz (i.e. to griz it out, having a bit of a griz)

Interesting that ARRSE/forums didn't get a mention, only blogs and emails.
