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. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5281204.stm

    Being naturally cynical of any numbers thrown up by the MOD. Would anyone like to comment on the 3% figure? Personally, I think 3% seems a little low, but is keeping with the "not over-stretched" line that keeps being quoted.
     
  2. Don't forget the last defence review reduced army strength by about 2500? So if we were working to the old figure the shortfall would be far worse
