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. Hi,

    I have ten days left until completion of service and I have been wondering what I should, or if I should buy something to mark the occasion.

    I probably will do, (Buy myself something that is), but what do the members consider was the best purchase to date, from the former old and bold?
  2. a dozen viagra and a ticket to hamburg...relive the old days ......well I would anyroads
  3. A gift set of Post-it notes and a gold-plated holepunch for your mantlepiece.
  4. I am not that old, don't need viagra, although if I went to a brothel, it would cost me my gratuity in about a week.

    Made me ;augh though.
  5. 10 more years on the reserves!
  6. I bought the mess a print of Steve McQueen on his motorbike about to leap the barbed wire from 'The Great Escape' with the caption 'took me 22 years but I made it'

    A combination of military & civilian reflected in an appropriate setting I thought.

    Last time I visited it was still on display too . . .

    Oh, and I got a shitty print of some dodgy castle somewhere near Catterick - must have cost half of what I spent!
    (Won't mention what I took as an extra present arfter my piss up though!)
  7. I didn't get a 'Urine up', unfortunately it was planned in Caterick for the same day day as the helicrash in August. Was quite rightly cancelled.

    And if I am honest, the best way to go. Quietly.
  8. I suggest a monogramed bog seat in regimental colours. Ah, the gift that keeps on giving!!
  9. The once in a life time opportunity to drive out the gate, raise two fingers and head off into the wild blue yonder that is the BAB 2.
  10. being a civvy.

    what do you think.
  11. Get yourself a new set of golf clubs, an electric trolley and take three months out wandering the fairways before you start another job. I did, loved it.
  12. Come back to the barracks after about 6 weeks having made sure you have grown hair and a beard.

    Hire a large expensive car and a couple of hookers, sit outside the gates with a huuuge spliff in one hand and a hooker in the other whilst the guys are doing area cleaning.
  13. The Sgts Mess at Lympstone has a nice padded head rest along the wall above the unrinals! Proper posh leather! Was donated by a member as he left. Thought it was great... if a little to high up... :wink:
