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. Not sure if you've seen the thread on Window Lickers?

    Some naughty Arrsers have decided that the pompous Word Freaks on this Dictionary Website have had it their way for too long.


    I need some words to bamboozle the shite out of them.

    What better, than the Naval terms used by the rank and file Commando's among us.

    I was thinking:

    Sandy Bottoms - drink up

  12. You are incredibly wicked people and I think you should all be ashamed of yourselves! I am so angry that I am not even going to tell you about all the words in the ARRSEPedia DICTIONARY because I couldn't trust you not to copy the worst ones (and there are some shockers I can tell you!) into that wonderful internet resource hosted by nice Mr Collins.

    Enjoy :twisted:
