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. There seems to be a lot of moaning of how gash UK Equipment is, however why dont we celebrate the good stuff we got, I mean Best in the World.
    I used to know a chap who R&D'd NBC gear and was adamant it was THE best in the world. the Americans came a close(ish) second. I await your laughter/suggestions chaps & chapesses.
     
  2. Your dictionaries used to be the best... :p

  6. Ah yes PLCE hasn't that been sold to Ireland and the Netherlands?
     
  7. The mk 1 British soldier; Underpaid, underequiped, undertrained and often under-the-influence! Still gets the job done; will aquire the necessary to do the job, pick things up as he goes and sober up along the way. (Then spend what money he has left on cheap booze and cheaper women.)
