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. Came across this a while back and thought some here might find this interesting; the battle probably only warrants an arrow on a map in most Normandy histories: Account of 2 Lincs at Herouville

  2. Good account - always difficult to comprehend what it must have been like having to mount infantry attacks over bare-arrsed ground against a prepared and efficient enemy.
     
  3. There are apparently a few lads working in curry houses in Brum who could tell you...
