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. My old man went to the first gulf war and he said the closest he got was their base having a scud alert but not much else.

    My English Grandad was in the paras and got captured and held in an italian POW camp for 4 years!!!

    My Scottish Grandad was in the Royal Artillery and had a couple of good stories, one was that him and another couple of blokes found a cellar in france and heard some german voices so chucked some grenades down there. Madness, he also had a bullet would in his leg from a mauser but didnt tell me the whole story.

    I found all these stories really interesting and wondered if anyone had anything first had or second hand they could share?

    Cheers.
