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. Appears that there may be a difference of opinion between 'Elicopter Bob and the chain of command regarding the circumstances of Capt Phillipson's death in 2006.

    The Times claims that Ainsworth smeared the commanding officer in an attempt to deflect criticism from equipment shortages.

    So now it starts with Sideshow Bob.

    Knock me down with a feather for all of my surprise.

  3. Can I ask what operational intelligence did Sideshow Bob have that gave him the right to second-guess the actions of the Major Jonny Bristow? Considering that an enquiry looks to clear him, has Sideshow got 'ears on the ground' or sumat?
  4. Hey extremist, his ears would be better six feet underground
