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. Is it just me? or has anyone noticed the over use of the word SELECTION ffs,
    too many people reading Andy Mcnabb methinks ..example... I'm leaving school next year and I'm thinking of applying for selection to the Army*or I,m thinking about selection to the RLC is another one,
    Just a minor rant...And no I didn,t apply for selection in case any one asks whilst I was serving because I probably would have got lost somewhere between abergavenny and hereford and wouldn't have found the camp anyway.

    * just say I'm going to try to join the army.

    I have selected the naafi thread for this.
     
  2. When I applied to join up back in the year <cough, cough> I went for selection at Sutton Coldfield. I'm sure it was called something like 'Recruit Selection Centre'...







    Edited to add: Soapy tit-wank
     
  3. I have no doubt you are correct,
    But you can see the point I'm trying to make I hope?
    Is the word used as a means of biggin up everything?
     
  4. People won't talk about this they'll have a conversation about it.
     
  5. Ah, but they also used to have "Selection" at German Railway stations.
     
  6. They won't listen either. They'll just have an audio sensory perception about it.

    Who granted exclusive use of the word 'selection' to THEM?
     
  8. Who's THEM ;-)
     
  9. They will unless things go pear shaped.
     
  10. I'd never heard of THEM before ARRSE
     
  11. Who granted exclusive use of the word 'THEM' (when capitalised) to THEM?
     
  12. How old are you? How old were you when you joined this site?
     
  13. They are distantly related to THOSE
     
  14. And there's me hoping this was a thread about Cadbury's Selection boxes, or even the Rowntree's Selection, Although I suppose, nowadays, it should be Werther's selection. Ah, well, back to the sweetie jar.
     
  15. Unless it suddenly goes "noisy"...
