TOO MANY OLD COLD WAR WARRIORS IN THE RAC FORUM.

#1
Come on lads , those of you that are serving , all that goes on in this thread is a bunch of old farts talking about Chieftain sprokets and
how un-classy the RTR is . Now i know the RAC is the most comitted
teeth arm corp in IRAQ , so if your TANKS or RECCE lets take back
this forum from the old farts before we all die of boredom.Lets have
some tales from the desert and of action,contacts etc instead of the old
drivel about when ''smudger got nicked in Detmold '' . cheers

With every passing day, there will be more former members of the Royal Armoured Corps, and so long as it is King Tony's personal army, there'll be fewer serving members.

FACT. Live with it.

;o)

Then there was that time ...

Edited cos I was typing one-handed and eating cashews with the other and not looking at what I was doing.

Actually, there are a number of 'cold war warriors' still serving in fairly senior command positions and most went to the desert...I spent 3 years there but it was not as much fun when we trained poorly and often with a view to stopping the 3rd Shock Army in its tracks....now you tell us something funny so we can have a laugh!

Come on chappy - tell us war story that will amuse us while we while away the hours in our bath chairs - put up or shut up.

Hmmm paveway if you are really in the RAC what are you doing not working at this time of day. I pay tax you know, unless you are above the rank of capt (have to say that or someone might get upset) get off the computer AND BACK TO WORK.

So you´re now bored of bigging up the QDG and you´ve decided that only serving personnel can use ARRSE. You obviously have very little real work to do. I dip into ARRSE from time to time because it brings back memories of my 21 very happy years in the HCAV/RAC, and also because it keeps me up to date with what´s going on. I particularly enjoy the 3 RTR thread, which I read to myself in my best Farmer Giles accent. Most of it is much funnier than anything on the telly.

The gist of my message is, if you´ve got something to say, say it. If not, get back to the tank park or whichever hot contact you can fit in between threads.

Jorrocks well said mate, I would just like to add come on Paveway_3 'Clear Hot' or are you 'Winchester'? Lets have some constuctive banter from the desert without slagging off the poeple who are enjoying the current threads on the RAC forum.

If you're on R&R you must be in the town my butti, because if you had returned to the valleys you would be up to your groin in your girlfriend at the moment.


Baaaaaaa! ;)

On R&R, :? FFS if this is what the 'younger' set get up to on R&R then I dispair for the Country. You should be shaggin for Britain or getting legless or other such suitable pursuits, not coming on to a 'boring' site such as Arrse :wink:

zzzzzzzzz......nurse, can you hand me my reading glasses to look at the drivel written on this thread? what's that? dinners ready? liver and onions? great, then we can settle down to a good night of midsomer murders on the box.
Seriously though guys, there are loads of people out here who served many years under the colours of the RAC, and still have lots of contact with their regiments. ( Reunion on th 18th Nov - pi** up weekend !!). For the love of christ - Give us a break !!

Right i shall shut it then , the whole idea of the post was to get a bit of banter going as its gone a little dull here. No slurs on any Cav regiments (except 9th/12th of course) just a bit of fun .
