Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by Maalox, Dec 12, 2012.

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. Are the shiny shoes these Guardsmen are wearing available for sale to the public?

  2. Yes, but not to *****....

    Looks like quite a boot to impress people. Have you ever tried a pair for size and comfort? Can they be worn and walked around in all day?

    Is a twunt a portmanteau of twat and **** because, correct me if I'm wrong, they are the same thing aren't they?
  10. Only if you assume there is only one definition of each word; and we all know what assume does.

  11. Guardsman, and Household cavalry footwear, are rather like the lawns outside stately homes; a mere few years of TLC and attention makes them shiny and black, in the case of the army, and verdant and green in the case of stately homes.

    As I suspect you have neither a country pile, nor a service background, of any sort, I would suggest a trip to any emporium that sells plastic slip ons to the public. A touch of Mr Sheen and you will be shiny as a soldier. Also better turned out than the average tramp and dog ensemble. Albeit not held in the same esteem.
