Willich Sgts Mess - Question

Discussion in 'Sappers' started by fishfingers, May 24, 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. There used to be brass plaque behind the bar, a quote from Napolean. Can anyone remeber it?
  2. That's going back a fair few years dude!!!
  3. 1987 mate

    The quote was along the lines of letting a man surprise you with his initiative.
  4. How old are you mate my dad and uncle were both at willich in the early 70's :D
  5. Oh, I wasn't there in the 70's unfortunately. Fantastic posting though, great social events.
  6. Here you go FishF

    I only went to Willich once, they were all asleep :D

    Check out the quotes in the link

    Napoleon's quotes
  7. Cheers Mac,

    I looked on the site but couldn't find it, checked on another site and found something similar though:

    "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do, and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."

  8. I was in Willich in the late 70s early 80s. Three years of solid drinking. Its been levelled and is now an industrial park/business centre. A very sad loss.
  9. I drive past quite often and it's amazing how it has expanded over the years. The tower is still there, wasn't it called the Pimmel :D Had a fantastic time with Sappers.
