Beating the Retreat

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. Fantastic evening. Earl and Countess of Wessex there, gawd knows what he was wearing, they played the 1812 overture so perhaps he was Napolean.

    Joey the horse from war horse was there, I swear he is real. At the end he was standing swishing his tail and throwing his head just like the real horses. John Tams was also there.

    Great music, Capulets and Montagues from Romeo and Juliet, Fanfare for the Common Man, The Great Escape, and Crags of Tumbledown. 1812 performed with canon (Kings Troop) guns (Moscow Militia) and fireworks.

    They refer to it as London's best kept secret, but it is really a fantastic evening and in aid of Army charities.
