YOU HAD TO BE THERE!

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. New to this site, it can be funny, made me think of the funniest things i had seen. Not tragic or monumental just 'kin funny.

    Seeing 'oggies' build a 12 bay for a demo still putting out the kerbs, when a troopy in a spartan decides to go for it and catches an 'oggie' flips him over into the gap 'kin funny to see (oggie only had a broken arm)

    Seeing pioneers in the Falklands working with a planty in a muir-hill (everyone should know planty's cannot see squat in a 'scoobie' all the mirorrs are set to see themselves) a pioneer walks behind and gets trashed (not fatal). pioneers are known as 'scoobie snacks' for the rest of the tour.

    Watching Euro 90 in 31's cellar bar, England scored, lots of cheering and jumping up and down, TV falls to the floor.

    You had to be there!

  5. OI KNOCKER!!! who gave you permission to use my photo on the world wide web!!

    hate to be pedantic Stolie, but pedant is my middle name and pedantry is my game (just for the sake of accuracy and realism you understand....!!) A Muirhill A5000 LWT was usually called a Mollie, an Allis Chalmers MWT (up-armoured for 33 in Ireland) was usually called a Scoobie, unless you were an infantry officer when you could call it a Scoobie Doobie Doo,
     
  6. Knocker!!! Do try and cut down on trawling the net.

  8. ok so i was mis-informed (not for the first time) was told 'scoobie' was nickname in NI by i might add an MPF
     
  9. troopy was posing in top hatch, probably waving to his mum
     
  10. HEY STOLIE..........

    Scooby was the radio name for an Allis Chalmers bucket loader....Scooby Minor was the Muirhill A5000 bucket loader. If you are still intouch with said MPF please kick him in his testicle and tell him he is a right Numpty from me.....MPF's .....sh it better things!

    ........finally.....do NOT let troopy anywhere near ANYTHING that has more than one working part!
