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. You got a link to that Detonator?
  2. You'd have thought so, but have you read that article?

    No need for it really. Getting mortared in Shaibah on Telic 7 wasn't quite the same as being mortared at the OSB. If a "direct threat of insurgent activity" is the biggest of your problems, you should be thankful of a cushy tour - Not big-timing it on TV.

    I may be reading too deep into it, but it seems to me that someone has put together the story in an attempt to tone down the full scale of what went on. It p*sses me off, because a few miles down the road, lads were fighting and dying.

    That last quote says it all for me.
