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. 16% increase in endurance thanks to the humble beetroot. :omfg: No wah! Here's the linky from the BBC

    Now, with a CFT on Sunday, the question is, where can I get some beetroot juice? lol 8)
  2. Yeah, and I'm still putting Bovril on my head looooong after the hair's gone.

    We try not too, nothing better than a couple of sweaty young men pulling out those veggies let me tell you - hmmmm ;o)
  13. Do you have a line of men in a row 'harvesting' or do you employ only a couple of sweaty ones at a time? And do they need to take beetroot juice or do you? :?
