the yanks?

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by quiller, Feb 24, 2003.

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've heard all sorts of stories about what poor soldiers the yanks are, no stamina, no leadership abilities at low level etc. are these stories true, do you have any good ones yourselves about the septics?
  2. Like anywhere fella, you get dregs and good profesional soldiers alike. Some of their lads really know their stuff and are very profesional indeed. And you get some real wasters. I'm sure you've seen that in our forces
  3. Ooooh get you Rigger getting all Victor you ghastly yid. Come on ROOT get a grip or I'll you will end up with the badest chinese and a monkey scrub on your Napper.
    But your are right, some of them are allreet, but theys talks funny dun em.
  4. I did meet a young US army officer who regarded Vietnam as a draw ;D ;D ;D
  5. We got one to explain the 24 hour clock to us, in the cookhouse at Westdown Camp, because we didn't understand it. He spent ten minutes patiently showing us his watch and getting us to add or subtract 12 where applicable. He kept referring to it as My-littery time.

    He was fairly thick.

    Mind you, we used to go through their bins in the mornings, minesweeping their infinitely superior rations.
    They used to watch us out of their windows, so I imagine we looked fairly cool too.

    They used to suprised that we had to wait 15 years for our LS & GC when they got one every 3, apparantly!

    They did throw the most excellent BBQ's in Berlin! Their ice dustbins were so big, the Brit lads would risk drowing to get the cans at the bottom of them!- You needed pearl divers lungs to get them!

    I like them, they make me look good! and thats an achievement in my book!
  7. We used to cross train with the yanks a fair bit in the 70ties, they would always ask "hey were you in Vietnam" knowing full well, that is was not a brit affair.

    The bog standard reply from the sweats was "No the vietcong did not need us, they could beat you on their own" hehe that used to shut em up.

    Or yeh.......Birming Nam now fu#k off.

    Yes we always got on with the yanks, although they were pissed off when they found their regimental goats head cut off, and nailed to the top of the Unit Flag pole.

    heheheh caused some sh#t that one.

    The guy who did it was most bemused at all the fuss he caused, as he said no biggy, he just wanted to see the look on the yanks faces.

  8. heheh thay sure haven't got the same sense of humour.

    Once got rid of a rancid range stew on site guard by telling the spams that it was the anniversary of Stonehenge and we were all eating "Henge Stew" - a traditional British dish at this time of year.

    They couldn't get enough of it and gave us enough MREs to last 3 site guards!!!
