The sportsmans treble, is it a myth or a possible reality?

Another thread trashed.

As enjoyable as it is reading the obvious wind-up and some severe biting, can the mods split threads so i can get back to reading about boobs and past experiences?
 
I would also point out that the degree certificate @Robme provided doesn't look right either.
A quick google search shows that it is missing the hologram between what should be two, not three, signatures. The wording at the top 'Council for National Academic Award' doesn't appear on them, and there is no date.
The Council for National Academic Awards was the national degree-awarding body in the UK from 1965 until 1993 so this certificate purports to have been issued before 1993. However, the CNAA was the body which awarded degrees to students of polytechnics and non-university institutions and as the Univ of Warwick received its Royal Charter in 1965, and could therefore award its own degrees, there would have been no CNAA involvement and so no mention of them on the University's degree certificate.
The Vice-Chancellor's name appears to be 'Ken Green' but there have only been 6 V-Cs in Univ. of Warwick's history of which three were post-2001. None of them have the name Ken Green or similar.
If I was to be shown this in my day-job I would, once I had stopped laughing, conclude that it could not be relied upon as credible evidence of academic progress .

I haven't read pages 8-12 of this thread so apologies if this has already been mentioned...
 
So I supply the evidence to prove I served and with distinction and you have a melt down? You do know how Walts Work, don’t you? They have recall about everything military instead of the area they actually know about. You have just proved your a LMFing Walt.
Yes, I do know how Walts work - I penned half the shit on the wiki. I also know the more evidence you supply the louder the stuka scream death plummet will be.

I'm not sure which phase of Bernoulli's Law we're at. Technically Phase 1. But I'd seriously consider just walking away from this. Is it Friday already?

As he is believed to have also been MacRaven, is he not a stage 5?

There was a Robme thread dedicated to his fables, but it got locked.

All those exotic gongs and no humble OP BANNER tours.
Shome mishtake shurely? He’s recounted in detail his escapades at Springfield Rd RUC Station and his epic emergency deployment from Moscow Camp to RVH driving a Saracen using the most circuitous route imaginable.

There was once a small farming community in Rhodesia. A good-looking farmer's wife had two daughters and the president of the local golf club said there was a green jacket for the ouen who had all three. Unfortunately I don't think it was ever won.

TBH I haven't been taking much notice. Life's too short.

Might I just interject with the observation that I don't think there's a single herd of cows on the face of the planet that, over an entire year, could produce as much bovine excreta as appears to have been splattered over this thread in the space of one night.
 
Looking forward to the Arrsepedia entry.

ETA: for someone missing any NI service from his alleged service history (which is missing the period between 11/05/75 and 17/03/76, tut tut, such bureaucratic incompetence) he still managed to be "one of the first on the scene of the Miami Showband massacre" according to this post - https://www.arrse.co.uk/community/threads/scariest-place-in-ni.299440/post-9955950
So is Robme, that sort of article can be turned in to "referenced in online specialist military data archive"

Anywho, did any anyone trying digging in to any of them?

Covered this in a previous post. :)
Kenneth Green retired as vice chancellor from Manchester Metropolitan University in September 1997. The University has a Library named after him.
Additionally, Manchester polytechnic gained University status on 15 September 1992 and re-branded as Manchester Metropolitan University sometime afterwards.
 
Didn't the late master swordsman (and sometime MP) Allan Clark score a treble? There was certainly a mother and two daughters that he wrote about in his diary.

Sadly not a trophy that sits gathering dust in my collection.

As opposed to a boob, and his lack of experience?
 
Not as redacted as you thought.

Also impressive how he managed to arrive in FI before he actually left Belize, as well as missing out the sea going bit from Acension, though I suppose it's plausible that he HALO'd from the Gozomy bird mid-Atlantic to join the task force.

Well this is getting tedious.
1st if this is all fake, you tell me how you do,it as I have no idea.
I do know I have an OBE, A MM and a have been Mentioned in Despatches, which I wear with pride at Remembrance Sunday and various Regimental Occasions. Funny how none of the senior officers in attendance seem to have the doubts that you lot have. Nor when The Soldier Magazine put me on the front cover. You make claims for dates and regimental numbers, spelling and interpretation and the only reason seem to be to validate your service as an LMF. And to hide your embarrassment at been shown to be dribblers. It’s ok to be wrong, it’s not ok to be a dribbler when you know your wrong and bully to cover up.

If you lot took to the time to read your responses the errors and misinterpretations (Deliberate Obviously) you will see as always the truth simply gets in the way. That must be the case as why would you distort otherwise?

There was a time when Arrse meant something to the Service community, but those days are well long gone, these days better known as bedlam. Justified by the rapidly decreasing numbers of new subscribers as well as hits on RSC.

So as I’ve got watch paint to dry, I’ll bid you adue
I was on the front page of Soldier magazine once. Inside a C130 that was photographed from the ground 3000ft away.

Most disappointing, especially as I’d combed my hair an’ all.
