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. In particular, "Mess Tin Order"?
  2. It's illegal to do now...however, it depends on the wording...'fitting parade,' works. Checking that their uniform fits in the correct manner ;)
  3. 5 mins full marching order GO!
  4. Good god, we could fit 2 quick change errr fitting parades in that time!

  6. Do you long to be surrounded by many semi-naked men wearing only the most basic of military equipment?

    Have you considered a career in the Royal Marines?
  7. Two minutes - CEFO go!
    Two minutes - working dress go!
    Two minutes - PT kit go!
    Two minutes - combats go!

  11. I never did understand why they got so upset when ones kit was in shit state after they had thrashed us in it!
  12. All part of the game.
  13. Probably. I should be feeling glad Flasher's Order, the old pervie army rain mac', with SR6, woolly tie and NBC boots plus the twat hat to top it all off, fitted me well, then. So that's put that one to bed. Seventies DS, kuntz to a man :) May have been plimsolls but NBC boots would have been cool.
  14. 0600 show parade, showing dust removed from locker!

  15. Not forgetting show room table and room bin at the Guardroom 2200 hrs. While you're at it- wear No.2s and best boots, you'll look ever so nice.
