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. SOURCE
    ( appallingly off-message tabloid widely derided by the Chatterati....daily circulation 2.1M)

     
  2. already done to death on "cheese eating allies"
     
  3. really? not seen - link plse.
     
  4. see thread "cheese eating allies"
     
  5. Ah the fabled Zambian sense of humour......if I could find your thread ex-C I would n't have posted here....perhaps you would bear with the ageing and infirm and provide something more helpful.,
     
  6. Zambia, Zambia, herrumf, I would have you know it was good old Northern Rhodesia when I was there sir!! ;-)
    Sorry, as you were posting I thought you could look it up on the "last 50" search!
    Out of interest were you there, Zambia or NR?

  7. ex-C and steven

    thanks for that link - seen,chortled and returned.

    Have to say sense of humour failure on my part as I didn't think to look in the Naafi bar - where the topic has received the studious attention it deserved, as evidenced by this fairlly representative remark

    Oxford Union eat ya heart out :)

    I was teasing re Zambia, just to get your blood pressure up a notch.....not had the privelege but a long time ago worked with a very downbeat Mancunian called David Shaw who had spent a lot of time working in the Copperbelt and told me what a fab place Jinja was before the damn natives got uppitty.

    I'm guessing only hardened US Arrsers venture far into the NAAFI bar - apologies for being a simp.
