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. Ah, I love a good sh!t-slinging contest.

    Even the most diehard anti-septic :-D might concede that America's best cultural contributions have come through music (Motown, college bands, etc). I'm wondering who you think the best American band or solo musician was/is.

    I'd have to go with my man, the patron saint of "music to shag by"...Marvin Gaye.
     
  2. Bruce Springsteen.
     
  3. Bing Crosby, and his mates - Stills and Nash.... (shurely shum mistake...)
