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. Its in the Wail from a article done in GQ.
    Love the cartoon drawings or Bastion, not exactly POW camp fences is it!!!
    And no mention of the heroic RAF Regt coming to the rescue....well not the way those Osprey slotting dudes would say!

  3. "**** that!" the Brit chief said. He wanted to wait for backup. "Everybody get back behind the walls."

  4. Somebody's been reading waaay too much Clunge.
  5. I assume 'the training kicked in' at some point? I couldn't bring myself to actually read the tripe.
  6. It was just like the old Commando comics, sorry, graphic novels. Except the British bulldog spirit was lacking in the crab QRF, apparently. They weren't willing to go up against a wounded Taliban; that's when they are most dangerous. The American steely-eyed dealer of death had to put him out of his misery before the brylcreem boys would dare look over the parapet!

  10. Oh look an internet stalker :party:
  11. Where?!
  12. Oh look, personal slights already! Giggle!
  13. Hey! Less of that! Don't you know that Osprey is at its most dangerous when it's wounded? He had to finish it off to be on the safe side.

    "savoring mouthfuls of the cool night air and a full-bodied Nicaraguan Man o' War". Fellating a Nicaraguan squaddie?
  15. Is this article implying it was all the British forces fault? Surely not...
