You can kill a regiment...or can you?

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 just thought that this is typical of County TA Regiment.

    You can close them down, take away funding, merge what is left half a dozen times in 10 years and still the Hydra's head grows back.

    I give you.......The Yorkshire Volunteers Band

    Depends on how much ammo you have simples.
  3. Great for music!! and stretcher bearers! what about the rest????
  4. Are they a band of midgets, or is the Drum Major about 7'6" and 33 Stone?
  5. " The YV Fanfare Trumpets are very popular at weddings with the Dixieland Jazz Band creating that special atmosphere at less formal functions, while the Dance Band "Yorkshire Swing" nostalgically recreate the big band era, the swinging sixties and beyond. "

    So if you're getting married you can hire them to play The Floral Dance minus Terry Wogan ?

    No offence but who joins a military regiment to brag about playing at someone's wedding reception :?
  6. Though to be fair their marching band looks and sounds better than the regular bands of some other armies. And they're not even territorials. I suppose they have lot of ex-British Army, ex-RM and ex-RAF bandsmen in their ranks?
