Established in 2002, the Army Rumour Service (ARRSE) is the unofficial voice of the British Army
In around 2 weeks I’m destined for a bouffant with speckled grey and badger stripe, that comes out to play after number 3 grade on top has been surpassed. I strongly suspect there are a few closet gingers on here also, equally shitting themselves. I’m willing to resort to dog clippers, and subsequently looking more of a tw@t than usual for a couple of weeks.
How are you lot planning suppressing your inner Bill Clinton bouffants??
Edit- majority of women at my place are of the all eyebrows and fingernails , hair extension persuasion. I’m quite looking forward to seeing what reality looks like!
Remember the days when the British Army had heavy metal in the sort of quantities that made the Russians sit up and take notice? The massive readiness exercises such as Lionheart in 1984 or Crusader 1980.
Of course, moving this amount of armour round Germany in tactical conditions inevitably led to some pretty impressive accidents and some very sad fatalities.
This is one of those great ARRSE threads where myths, memories and fact are brought together to shine a light on a period that is now largely forgotten.
