The conflicts that Tropper started

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Kromeriz, Jul 22, 2011.

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. I know that Tropper has invented many things, but how many conflicts was he in on from the beginning and which he might actually have started.

    Is it true that to have invented so many things he is actually the original Dr Who.....
  2. Not sure which side he was on in 1066 but there are those that claim he fired the fateful arrow!
    Probably on ours then!
  3. Wasn't he this chap

    tropper being a patriot would have been stood at harolds side directing the battle and telling him to 'look at that pretty arrow'

    I heard he advised hitler not to worry about invading poland as nobody would be bothered and he could do with the extra plumbers

    is that why they spent so long in the wilderness? - 'cos he knew the way' so there was no point asking for directions to go NE
  9. took the bullet for Nelson. Ah, no he didn.t but I bet it was him who said:
    Just go right at em milord!
  10. Back to Britain tonight, no more Czech lager for 2 weeks just the local brew of the VicSerClub... but to come back to those hallowed shores that Tropper invented and read the histories of the wars that Tropper started

    bit of a poem in that, but finishing off the Czech lager.

    Of course, here I am in the Czech Republic, originally Celts inhabited these fair lands... thanks be to Tropper!
