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. Came across this which I havent seen anywhere else - apologies if already posted - source

  2. Fekking cowboys - at least he wasn't to badly injured.
  3. 49 Cdo?

    Are the RM expanding as the infantry contracts?
  4. It's the new RM Group 4 Security Guard Commando
  5. Misprint for 40.

    Rotten shooting if they only achieved one hit at presumably short range?
  6. thats because they were shooting at trained soldiers and not women and children running towards their checkpoint to escape the bombing.

    Maybe the Spam would have done better if the RM was wearing a wedding dress..............................hey that could happen.
  8. comeon guys, lets not beat the spams up too much (a small amount is only healthy :) )

    It was dark, they were broken down and wary about terroist attacks. I know they should have checked their targets before firing but mistakes happen.

    Jus glad the captains career was not ruined by this stupid mistake

  9. i thought 'letting rip' was part of the septic ROE!!!
  10. I keep telling you guys, if you'd shoot back, they'd get the message. :wink:
  11. didnt want to risk wiping out an entire septic patrol with 1 volley.
  12. true,

    they probabbly cacked themselves when they heard it was a UK squad (equal to 100 spams)

    PS did you know that a sergant in the UK army carries out the same duties as a captain in the US army???
  13. I can hear it now..

    " HELLO ON CALL SPECTRE THIS IS GUNSLINGER NINER ZERO I AM TAKING FIRE FROM GRID 123 345 GIMME ALL YOU GOT" Followed by the sound of an AC130 unloading chain gun, 20mm, 40mm, 105mm, big sticks dipped in dogshit, kitchen sinks etc onto Brits.

    Some of my gang in MNDSE where escorting a convoy to Kuwait: they came across a US column who engaged them: they did check fire, but where then seen to be opening up on a couple of kids on pushbikes, around 2-300m from the convoy. When asked WTF, they explained it was to keep the Arabs away.

    This was in daylight.....
