Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  5. Lord, Sir Geoffrey Boycott comes to mind the greatest cricketer (in Yorkshire that is) not be knighted!
  6. A Yorkshireman's wife dies and he decides on an economically worded headstone for her grave. He visits his local monumental mason and requests the wording to read "She Was Thine".

    A few days later he gets a call from the stonemason to say the stone is ready, and would he like to see it. On inspection, he is disappointed to read the inscription "She Was Thin".

    "Tha silly bugger" he says to the mason "you've missed an 'e' ". The stonemason apologises profusely and says he will put it right within the hour.

    The Yorkshireman returns once again to view the headstone and reads "E She Was Thin".
