The Wild Geese

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by jagman, Jan 15, 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. Just starting now on Sky channel 323, movies4men :)
    Or starting one hour later on 324
     
  2. "On your feet you fucking abortion!!"
     
  3. Indeed :grin:

    Alternatively, I can sit in my armchair with a small glass of Jura, a half decent Cuban and enjoy a couple of hours quality telly
     
  4. A good friend (subsequently became a twat) had a relative who did regular jumps with the RAF free fall team, promised me a T shirt, it never arrived, that was the day he became a twat. The T showed geese flying in V formation, imagine V pointing right, leftmost furthest point of V is a goose flying, as you follow them along to the point, they are all geese , after the point the goose merges into a freefall para.

    **Swings lantern and pulls up a sandbag**

    I spoke with the stunt co ordinator on Soldier Soldier once
    He took part in the jump for the Wild Geese
    Said it was a good film to work on
    Really nice bloke

    Only trumped by Roy and old civvie driver who once told his how he had jumped as part of a Bridge To Far and gave his chute to James Caan so he could get in it and pretend he had landed
    Taken with a pinch of salt until we watched it and when Robert Redford briefs the troops there's Roy stood just behind him clearly in shot
     
  7. I thought there was a train coming a moment ago and then realised I didn't live near train tracks?

    Then I realised it was the sound of the entire old 'n bold thrapping furiously and collectively at the thought of this glorious piece of SLR porn.

    Has Jarred been on yet? "Look at you big bastards. What a pity we can't all get along."

    That explains all. And I suspect like so many posters on this site "a has been queen".

    Where did he get that pic of you anyway?.
     
  12. I think he'd been rooting in my handbag.
     
  13. Rape a prossie, do a bit of bumming in the gents. Different teams, same sport haha.

    "Good luck to you, you godless murderers"

    The picture is Jarrods mugshot. His best mate rearwords sent it me after they parked in the entrance of Snappy Snaps.
     
  14. Don't mention it's name! It'll be back from bingo soon and wanting to take it's teeth out.
