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. 6.6.66 - Slade Road Boys School, Birmingham. 6.6.6 - HQ RLC Sgts Mess attending Conductors Parchment Presentation Ceremony.
     
  2. 06.06.06 stood in a hanger in Banja Luka metal factory swapping my cap badge and witnessing 300 years of Regimental Pride and history go down the shit pipe.

  5. Why? What happened?
     
  6. Well, seeing as it was a Monday, I was the Coal Face Electrical Apprentice on
    7's face down Shaw Cross Colliery.
    At this time(1320hrs) the Sparky and I were on our way out of the Pit, shift finished
    at 1400.......Ah, those communal showers!
     
  7. Where was I on the 6th of June of an unspecified year?
    Well done, your award for the most tenuous thread of the year in in the post.
     
  8. I'll hazard a guess that I slept a fair but, smoke, drank, had a **** and a shit.

    6.6.2012 - had a slanging match with TSO about the constant viewing of Her Maj's festivities she recorded and not letting me watch Jeremy Kyle, Neighbours, Deal or No Deal, QVC, RT, Al-Jazeera, porn tv.

    6.6.44 (My old man) - Flying Sho(r)t Stirlings and towing Horsas and then having to fly a Horsa and make his own way back through the lines. Apparently, he got pissed and "liberated" some lovely German cutlery from some Nazi officer who had hidden behind the curtains and got thumped on the head for it by Dad. We still used the stuff till two years ago...
     
  10. What, you were in a Regiment which had neither amalgamated nor changed its name in 300 years?
     
  11. 6.6.66 = Munster, scrapping. The Padbrats & the Kraut kids accross the Strasse were having a pitched battle until the Polizei & the RMP turned out.
     
  12. Ahh, happy days of the old Krajina Corps. I'd no idea they went back that far though.
     
  13. Yeah, God bless Cashconverters[SUP]®[/SUP]

  14. According to my dive log, I was at about 40m on the wreck of the Zenobia.

    Obviously I wasn't at that depth for the whole of the 6th June, only some of it. Later that day I drank to excess and assaulted a female holiday maker with a bag full of Cyprus sandwiches.
     
  15. Although on checking, you'd appear to have been a Green Howard until 2006.

    To be fair, though, they were initially raised in Devon and didn't officially become known as the Green Howards until 1921.

    Anyway, welcome to amalgamation world.

    As an aside on 06.06.06 I was being ambushed shitless after a strike op in Basrah.
