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. Had a quick search but couldn't turn anything up similar to this.

    Which regiment, in your opinions, has the best looking mess dress?
  2. The worst ever is female QA.

    It makes your chick look like she's been half swallowed by a teepee.

  3. Worst has to be Small Arms School Corps, sky blue lapels that are gayer than AIDS

    Plus whoever's inside it is sure to be a boring ****.

    Best: The Gurkhas
    Worst: The Rifles. The open collar makes them look like flamenco dancer.
  6. Rifles / Open Collar?

  7. int corps as the worst? A lot of billiard tables are missing their baize
  8. Have to agree. It has all the style of a sparrow that's just flown into a shut window, combined with the colour of horse piss.

  9. AAC has some blue stuff...

    Rifles is elegant, understated and egalitarian ( = no rank for Officers )

  10. Best - QRL or Light Infantry

    Worst - Int Corps or another vote for the Rifles', nice jacket but not with a bow-tie and white shirt.

    You look like waiters in the RGR mess. The open necked jacket with the bowtie was not a good decision.
  12. 11 Hussars,as was,obviously.

  13. The late lamented Queen's Regiment's was immaculate; smart, understated, white piping made all the difference as did the lovely cuffs. On the other hand the PWRR thing is a disgrace - clearly designed by a committee of wannabees with no class or apparent breeding. Ghastly. Won't wear it.
  14. RLC with AT flash, you could argue its not the best, but it's worn by the best.
