Just a poll to see what the community of arrse is made up of.

So, what are you?
 
#2
Curious.

As to why you think the results will be accurate. How do you know that the furtive walts on this site aren,t corrupting the results by clicking on the serving or ex forces?

I was in the TAze a long long time ago - (we're talking SLRs here) so I suppose that makes me a walt for which I apologzie profusely in advance :oops:

..but in my defence I don't dress up in DPM and I don't do airsoft.

I guess i'll have to vote "never served, never will"...

Had my heart set on joining after leaving school, but when the time came and i started the process, i was knocked back on medical grounds (bad right eye).


[edit] - and no, the eye can't be fixed by laser zappy type thingie-ma-bobs.

Hmm, I don't quite understand. You either served in the armed forces, or you didn't. If you haven't and are not going to, then vote 'never have'.

I am just kinda curious as to who makes up most of arrse. Is it mainly ex-forces who like to reminisce about their military days, and how things have changed. Or is it mainly lads and lasses currently serving (reserve forces included) who like to talk about current shít going on and how things are affecting them now. Or people like me, who are joining the forces who like to get an idea about life in the military and maybe some tips and info about what to expect.

Or the random people who never served and are not planning to (maybe they have a connection or interest in the military in some other way).

Tell thee here!

Someone pointed me towards the site when I was in OTC. I've since graduated, and I'm doing a PGCE, after which I'm hoping to take a TA commission in the RMLY. I drift about on here fairly often because there are some interesting insights into current foreign affairs, but I hardly ever post since I'm not even a proper STAB yet.

Hey now, if we are being pedantic, then I never mentioned the British Army at all in any of my posts in this topic. If you served in one of the world's armed forces, than you would vote 'ex-forces'.
 
#17
stab but i did have a knife on my assault vest in iraq so possibly have walt tendencies . :D
 
#18
MMM, let you off, but seeing this is really a British Army site, oh well, who cares ive voted anyway
 
#19
Im voted "never served and never will"

I however would like to join the colours but my medical condition decided otherwise, I do however do find working with Cadets very rewarding while being able to do my bit in green kit.

never ever walted tho :D
 
#20
I've been thinking of joining the TA, then join fully either in the RAF or Signals who ever has nicer food and more beer money. When I look back at the time in the cadets it makes me look like a complete walt.


Gosh I feel so waltish.....
