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. Not so much a POW camp,more a disused radio equipment store,but why sulphuric acid? (for sending vitriolic messages?)...

  2. For lead-acid accumulators. They were supplied dry, for safe transport, and had to be filled with sulphuric acid before first use. Maybe still are, for all I know.
     
  3. Fuckin' scaley's get everywhere don't we. Snigger.

  4. Somewhere in my brain something is telling me that I have seen this place before..possibly on TV, Something says it was used by various military and civilian personnel to learn foreign languages...hence the huge amount of earphones etc. Originally used by the RAF it was then operated by the US Navy where the main language taught was Russian.

    I could be extremely wrong...but I am pretty sure thats what it was.
