What was the best memories of you in the British Army

#1
Good evening,

I've been lurking through this sub-section of ARRSE recently, and numorous threads have made me crying with laughter, so with the recent Kenya thread making me swimming in my own tears I just wanted to ask for any ex/current army types to tell their best times within the army, be it holidays/nights out etc... :D

-Thanks for any replys! :)

Driving away from Catterick Garrison, with my discharge papers in my pocket.

Dropping out of hyperspace into high orbit around Rigel 7. We opened fire on the USS Reliant, they fired back & fucked up our warp drive. We then spent the next couple of days playing hide and seek in a nebula (shields & sensors were no good either). Eventually we managed to get around behind Khan and fuck him over and destroy his ship.

Then the Klingons turned up, we had a bit of a barney & crashed our ship and then stole the klingon's "Bird of Prey"...................

oh hang on, that wasn't a memory.

Up the reeperbahn with 3000 bucks in my back pocket.
You would have been better off with Euros (or DM if long ago). The exchange rate for bucks was always a ripoff.

Walking up the main drag with a few hundred quid in my pocket and a train warrant, getting just outside the maingate and sparking up a big dirty spliff as my troopy, Coy Commander, RSM, Adjt, the 2ic, CO, Commandant General and the Captain General all walked past at the same time.

Felt good..

The amount of pricks that used to say that that was what they were going to do when they leave, funny that because all I remember seeing when someone was off was slightly moist eyes, a frightened look of the unknown and the back of their severley overloaded car shuffling out into the world..

Seeing a particularly annoying fellow recruit have an ND with a blank, shooting herself in the face while saying "Look, don't tell me how to handle my rifle, the fucking safety's on"

A cold wet Winter's evening in Belfast when......................

Being the second man on the balcony and thinking thank fuck vvaannmmaann is first as those frame charges were a bugger to place and ignite. I was hoping he would fuck up the fuse, get blown off the balcony and I would be the first man in.

Being third man on the balcony, because those mess windows were a bugger to clean on your own. However with Dusty and Nobby alongside, we had them done by NAAFI break...great days.

Cuddles you never listened. We used frame charges so there was no window left to clean and it straight back to the pit for a quick heads down before NAAFI break. I was never asked to clean the hofficers mess windows again, after a little chat with the badgeman obviously.

I remember things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.

All those moments are lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time for civvie street.

What do you mean I never listened? I could hardly hear after those window cleaning fatigues...still we must have done a good job because they never used us for that one again.
