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:

    Well it had to have a topic all of its own!
  2. Apparently the guy in the balloon is Welbexian and not just any officer!!

    A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and
    spotted a woman below.  He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can
    you help me? I promised a friend I would met him an hour ago, but I don't
    know where I am"

    The woman below replied, "You are in a hot air balloon hovering
    approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees
    north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude"

    "You must be an accountant," said the balloonist.
    "I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"
    "Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically
    correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact
    is I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help so far"

    The woman below responded, "You must be an Army Officer".
    "I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
    "Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you are
    going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air.
    You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect people
    beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same
    position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault"
  3. I know that Balloonist!!
  4. Let me guess Nugget, he attended Sandhurst?

    I once used that in my farewell dinner on being dined out of the mess.. But I used the CO in the Baloon and me in the field...

    I was the Adjt.

    Anyway, enough of this!  Welbeck is the topic.
  6. If only the CO could see you now CGS!! Sorry for causing diversification sir I realise how difficult it is for some of the Officer Corps, yourself excluded (forelock tugged) to concentrate on too many things at once.


    This was a reply to a Welbeck thing that you initially posted. Dont worry I dont think anyone noticed that you momentarily lost concentration.

    We all answer to someone!  Unfortunately my Sahib was looking over my shoulder at work as I was typing that one!


    And yes, I too get an OJAR this year.  Oops!
  8. Do we need a free the CGS one campaign??
  9. No, I suspect he served his time in the "College from up north". And unlike Arey Nevin there is no escape. They may dress up as officers but remain incarcerated by "The institution".

    Save yourself!

    1.    Enforcer, you may be a moderator, but read MY moderating message!

    2.    I'm not a Wibbly Wobbly Welbexian, and neither are you, enforcer!

    3.    Not only will I break your legs next time I see you, I will also spill the beans about some of your more colourful antics.

    And yes, I am probably going to need some assistance in the area of incarceration at this rate.

    My cover is now well and truly blown!!  My boss knows what I'm doing all day, even though I push out policy like it's going out of fashion!
  12. CGS, you need not expend too much energy, knee caps will do, I will lend a Black & Decker, if you let me watch!!

    Back to the topic, me thinks........
  14. Sorry, couldn't resist posting this......

    Under new proposals, Welbeck will leave its present location, and become a tri-service 6th form college!  How happy am I with that - we might be able to sideload more of those Wibbly Wobblies to the RAF or Navy!!  Mind you, situation is improved by sending them to civvy Universities - may prompt more of them to drop out of the system rather than tie it up later on.

    FESTER the Molester - RIP!  You know who you are!!
  15. Fester the Molester, gone? A bright, shining light has truely gone out. :'(
