Hello. Here on ARRSE I see quite a lot of talk about how much squaddies can drink. My own experience is that, indeed, although squaddies have an impressive constitution when it comes to going on the lash, I have seen suburban rugby clubs aquit themselves just as well. Admittedly, my experience is slightly out of date. The last time I went out on the piss with a load of squaddies it was a liaison-type do and most of the people there were SNCOs on good behaviour. Well, sort of good behaviour, as one of them threw up on a Latvian au pair he was trying to chat up but that's another story. He shall, for the time being, remain nameless. So, a few years on, what is the consensus here in the NAAFI as to what constitutes a proper squaddie drinking binge? Ten pints? Eleven? How does one factor in spirits? Do we use those units on the side of the bottle? Do youngsters drinking alcopops get twatted for being girls? More questions: what is the most epic squaddie piss-up you have ever indulged in? How long did it last and what was your poison? So, in conclusion: Can squaddies nowadays still drink more than the average suburban rugby team? V!
