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. Saw Blood Diamond this afternoon and give it a big thumbs up. Not having been a Leonardo Dicaprio fan, I was impressed he more than pulled off his part as an Old Rhodie ex-SADF 32 Battalion diamond smuggler and freebooter in 1999 Sierra Leone.

    Not that I know anything much about it, but I found the thinly veiled versions of DeBeers and Executive Outcomes interesting and the depictions of the RUF matched accounts I had read of a crazed, murderous rabble.

    I found it a gripping setting in time and place and a good story (albeit with the inevitable 'Hollywood bits'). I'd recommend it but would be interested in others' opinions.
