Wheres the Music Corps Section?

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. I noticed that 'Boards by Arm/Service' that there's no Music Corps section, or is there?

    Give me 50 B Minor melodic scales, in your own time GO!
  3. Ok, can I be a total cnut here and say, as this is ARRSE ie, the ARMED forces blah blah blah, why would there be a music section?

    Being none armed? basically civis who wear uniform for ceremonial tasks yet still get gongs depending where they play a tune, lot?

    Sorry drunk and fed up, and never liked the fact a trumpet player got the same medal for going to NI and playing a tune to boost moral etc etc.

    Ask me tomorrow when im more coherant.
  4. I'm a drummer ;)

    Got to agree with you there Gren.

    Can't stand trumpet players either,

    Showoff bastards.

    Trombonists are quite nice though.
  6. Only a civvy, but perhaps you'll allow me to remind you of the London park bombings of 20th July 1982. Musicians are a target too, because they are a military asset.
  9. Fine, now go and put the kettle on.

    NATO for me.
  10. Isn't that the term used to describe a bloke who hangs around musicians? :wink:
  11. Air or dry?
  12. Lmao. I get that all the time. It's either REME VM(B) or Musician :p. Hard decision to be honest.
  13. Sorry to ask this, but being an "old and bold" I'm not up to date with things.

    Am I to understand, that the different regiments no longer have their own bands, but instead there is a Corps Of Military Music, that switches capbadges between gigs. That can't be right can it? Or have I misunderstood?
  14. Or to put it another way ‘Music Walts’ :wink:
  15. This lot are nails..!!Nails Band'
