Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by Oakley, Jun 25, 2006.

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. Basicly as the topic says on the tin. Why did you join the british army? (might be better suited to NAAFI but thought i would start here)
  2. How else could I earn obscene amounts of money for doing very little with only a slack handfull of GCSE's?
  3. I only went out for a paper and a pint of milk, then woke up in Combats! still haven't got the milk.
  4. I didn't join the British army.

    I joined the Royal Signals :( :(
  5. I found a shilling at the bottom of my pint....

  6. ive been trying to answer that question for 9 months now
  7. I wanted to learn how to spell NAAFI properly
  8. Obscene amounts of money, your kidding right. The pay in the army is shite, obviously didn't get GCSE maths!!
  9. What planet are you on? The pay is NOT as bad as you seem to think. What about the 'perks' that you don't pay for....?
