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. Abbreviations....OR WHATS IN A NAME....?

    Been on a "binge"....with some old (walts) 20 - 25 yrs old and in uniform after 2 pints of "milk"..with "older walts" and done a "eddification" test......
    Question...of Abbreviations....

    Apologies to anyone who is/has served in those Corps!
  4. Heard the other RAMC before, but I always thought it was,...Run Away, Matron's Coming!

    QARANC was Quick And Ready And Never Caught (apparently).

    And my current outfit, the Princess Mary's Royal Air Force Nursing Service, don't appear to have a sobriquet attached to the whole abbreviation, although I'm led to believe that the abbreviated abbreviation 'PM' stands for Pilot's Mattress!

    and an oldie: (Army Service Corps WWI vintage)

    ASC - Ally Sloper's Cavalry
  6. AGC - Alf Garnett's Commandos OR All Girl's Corps

    ACC......Andy Cap's Commando's

    Damm "white lightning"......makes me think of 87 Static Laundry RAOC....the blanket stakers!
