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. Flak vest used in NI, excellent condition, comes with ballistic filler,

    Size large :D

    £34.99 plus postage which is 8 for it being a little heavy.

    If you would like a pic PM please.
  2. why on earth did you buy one of those?!
  3. Call me cynical, but didnt that wildcard chappie try and punt one of these earlier.
  4. Is this one of the ex-Vietnam US Army ones (early 70's) complete with graffiti/writing ? I got bloody boils on the back of my neck with mine. Weighed a ton, but kept you warm in Winter.
  5. Dig a big hole in your garden and bury it.

    Say a prayer over it and pray that no one will ever have to wear such shite again.

    However, there is always ebay and zillions of Walts. (Make sure you say ex RM, PARA, SAS) Go for it, You know it makes sense!!
