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. None of us saw the round that got taffy
    we just heard its deathly sound...
    As it whispered "allah akbar" and
    "inshallah enta buhkarat"....
    Maybe you tomorrow.
    And the hercules refuelled
    and stood six bearers waiting, heads down.
    Did something glint on taffs chest?
    His mothers teardrop
    and now a white cross in a line of white crosses
    evans 642 it will read "for valour"
    and the c.o. Must say something
    but taffy gave the ultimate
    in this futile and already lost cause!!
  2. Sorry for your loss - but that was a bloody terrible bit of poetry.

  3. The boy stood on the burning deck,
    His pockets full of crackers.
    One fell down his trouser leg,
    And blew off both his knackers.

  6. Taff got shot whilst on the boggerel,
    So I made up this woeful doggerel.

  7. There was a young Welshman called Taff
    A poem about him was naff
    Was he Army or RAF?
    The Outrage bus may ding-ding
    But the poets surely no Kipling

    And neither is I.

  8. Are there many cold winters' nights in Afghanistan? I hear my Muse calling...
  9. Some will feel you've done alright,
    Me? I think it's utter shite.

  10. Sir, a chair awaits you in the offices of the Times Literary Supplement.
  11. McGonagall would be proud.
  12. Anything about white dog shit?
  13. A lost mate Haiku:

    Young Bob died today,
    I cried like a baby girl,
    He owed me Ten quid
  14. Santa enters house
    Soldier is asleep on floor
    Poem is real shit
  15. Taff got killed whilst still a stripling,
    Like me, he weren't no fucking Kipling.
