Survival guide for Germany

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. If you are a pissed up Brit/Squaddie and are living in the urban
    parts of Westphalia, do not annoy the local Turks! Unless you want
    to look like Herman Munster.

    I didn't have that problem as I looked a bit like a Turk! :D
    Never have carried a knife in my life though!
  2. I think you'll find that the Turks have a lot of time for Brits in general. When I was living in Kreuzberg (which has a bigger Turkish population than Ankara) in the late Seventies in a gaff with Martin Kippenberger, Jörg Schlick, Gisela Capitain, Klaus Krüger (drummer with "Tangerine Dream"), Hella Utesch, Claudia Skoda and Tabea Blumenschein, I never had any probs at all with the Turks, but the others (all Krauts) sometimes did.


    PS. It wasn't really necessary to list all the inhabitants, but I love to name-drop. Google some of those people to see what I mean.
  3. The Spicks used to do drive by shootings at us. We took over from the Green Jackets and the local flip flop heads held a bit of a grudge. Dunno why?

    The younger Turks could be a problem if you took them on in their own manor but all in all they were ok if you gave them a bit of respect and didn't try and shag their mums.
  4. Or a bloke who's had a caesarian!

  5. Who were they? The German Olympic Bottom touching team?
  6. Well, that's it! And I was the trainer. :D :D :D

    Actually they're all famous/well-known for one thing or another. I was the only one who never made it.

  7. Bugsy,
    Was that the house, full of hun hippies, that featured in the movie, "Munich". Why didn't mossad cap your arrse?
