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. A former mayor of a port town who went by the title 'Commander' today admitted he had never served in the military.
    John Roberts, 80, attended civic events and Remembrance Day celebrations in Milford Haven wearing a Royal Navy uniform with an array of medals. But it has now emerged that his prestigious outfit was in fact a fraud - and he has denied ever claiming a naval background.

  2. Not so long ago I went to the funeral of a man who looked like a tramp. His accent was cut glass 1930`s. He had commanded ships on the Arctic Convoys to Russia in the 40`s. It was only at his funeral when the BL turned up that we found out just who our drinking friend was.
