Yorkshire crowds cheer soldiers before deployment

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.  
  2. The headline is Yorkshire crowds cheer soldiers before deployment. Just out of interest what's the chance of this lot actually deploying to Afghanistan?
     
  3. It's good to know that the centralised command and single HQ of the Yorkshire Regiment ensured that while 2 Yorks were marching through the streets, 3 Yorks hadn't a clue that it was going on and there wasn't a single recruitment stand to be seen. Anyone would think that there was still cap badge tribalism between the regi.. battalions.

    were they cheering the safety of their daughters during mating season?

    6 months tan, bbq and rep raping duty cant be bad
     
  5. Given the amount of time 2 LANCS spent in Theatre I would say the chances would be pretty high

    And given the amount of time 2 R Anglians did, pretty low.
     
  7. Anyway, it's nice to see the public supporting the army.
     
  8. Excellent morning. The old and bold were out in force and there was many an old friendship renewed. The turnout of locals on a wet Wednesday morning was good to see.
     
  9. So 50/50 then
