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. Says in the following link that 2RTR or elements of are deploying to Afghanistan. Are the tanks going as well or are they going in the dismounted role. Sorry if this question has already been answered somewhere else.

  2. ask s54 for the offical line..
  3. hey saint david what do you want to go to a war zone?
  4. I'm in the QDG so have already been to a war zone, and no I'm not on about Dreamers on the weekend smart ARRSE. And I think you will find so have 2RTR a few times.
