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. Sitting here, watching Countryfile, on BBC 1, because it is focussing on, nearby, Weymouth and the 2012 Olympic sailing events to be held here, they mentioned the "Black Death". 8O

    The Black Death entered Britain, in 1348, via Weymouth. :omg:

    It was brought here from FRANCE! :omfg:



    I wonder what other "nasties" can be blamed on France ..........

    ......... or Weymouth. :omfg:

    Some of the dance moves might be a bit suspect but Corsican born Alizée does it for me.

    Unfortunately only in my dreams.

    Chips are a French invention that has become an British tradition. In the eighteenth century the first ‘pomme frites’ (fried potatoes/chips) were served. 1854 is thought to be the first mention in Britain, when a leading chef included ‘thin cut potatoes cooked in oil’ in his recipe book, Shilling Cookery.
  15. Onion Soup.
