Women to join Chelsea pensioners

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Drone_pilot, Feb 26, 2007.

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. Women are to be admitted for the first time to the Royal Hospital, home
    to the Chelsea pensioners.

    The first former servicewomen are expected to be housed at the west London
    hospital by 2009.

    Could hardly keep them out. After the first female Beefeater was appointed in Jan, this was sure to follow.
  3. And, of course, there is no reason why they shouldn't.

    It will give the guys a lift - ooer

    Watch out for the first 'Shock, Horror Scandal' story from NOTW or the Scum :hmm:

    Agreed - on both counts!
  6. And no doubt the MOD will be coughing up for a maternity wing to go with the new inmates ? :biggrin:
  7. I'm saying NOW'T.
  8. What - sex and drugs and rock n' roll - and a pension? Lucky old burggers :thumright: Happy days :brilsmurf:
  9. ... and fertility treatment :scratch:

    Then again, I thought there already was a home for retired service women - could this be another cost cutting exercise from Broon?
  10. God help any woman in there! Have you been there when there's any female walking about? They're sex pests in red coats!
  11. It's going to cost a fortune. You won't be able to move for scatter cushions, the curtains will all have to be changed and some WON'T wear red as it doesn't match their eyes.

    Even if they are bloodshot.
  12. And the morality.

    an oxymoron surely :thumright:
  14. Ok the oxymorons of the old boys will go through the roof as well.

    I suppose they'll all be standing stiffly to attention. Those that still can.
  15. Well I can't wait.

    On my next visit I'll be on the prowl for a bit of Granny fanny and no mistake.
