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. Hard to choose really

    "Are we going to die Colour Sgt?"
    "Now Lad, face front and do up your tunic"

    "Y'know what I think? Don't really matter what I think. Once that first bullet goes past your head, politics and all that shit just goes right out the window. " BlackHawk Down

    "What is it with you Moriaty? Always with the negative waves"

    "The Germans think WE are the Barbarians"
    "Barbarians? Hell, I like that!" Band of Brothers

    " Ah luv a bird wut talks dirty" Dogsoldiers

    Apologies if I got some of those wrong :)

  9. Band of Brothers when they meet the retreating SPAM Inf. Retreating Officer warns the AB OC that the Germans are coming and they'll soon be surrounded.

    The response, " We're Paratroopers son..........we're meant to be surrounded"
  10. Cross of iron

    Captain Stransky "All right, I accept your challenge. I will show you how a Prussian Officer fights."

    Or words to that effect, to which Steiner/Coburn replies;

    Douglas Bader in "Reach for the sky"... Shortly after taking over command of the Wing, the Sgt clerk comes into his office with a foot-high pile of paperwork. Bader asks "What's this?"
    "Paperwork for your attention, sir." replies the clerk.
    Bader picks up the paperwork and drops it all in the bin. "There, it's had my attention." He then clumps out of the office and goes off to win the war.
