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. I would like to read up on the history of this unit, particularly from the beginning of the 20th Century through to the end of the First World war. I don't know where to start looking. Ideas, anyone?
  2. Royal Artillery Museum and/or National Army Museums would seem a good starting point and dont forget Mr Google

    But as a point of curiosity why were mountain batteries part of the Garrison Artillery? Seems a bit of a contradiction!
  3. Farndale's history of the RA in WW1, The Forgotten Fronts and the Home Base.
