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:

  2. As terrible as these figures are, how on earth has it taken this long to get a 'confirmed' figure for the missing. It was only early this week that they came up with the figure of 159, now it's much higher, what will it be next week?
  3. As I mentioned yesterday on another thread, I wonder if the figures were quietly supressed for a while in order not to reflect too badly upon the Dear Leader's failure to stir himself from his sun-lounger.
