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. CNN is reporting an explosion outside of Brit Consulate in New York. No casulties.

  2. Don't lose your passport this weekend if you're travelling there.....
     
  3. Radio 4 news at 1630.

    Looks like dummy grenades filled with black powder and then initiated by a hand lit fuze. On that hightech basis it will be about 5 minutes until the 'highly trained' operative is being inspected on a thousand CCTV tapes!

    There are many other things in the building as well as the British Consulate (which occupies two upper floors), including a firm which sells the Israeli government its bulldozers!

    Nehustan On ROPs

    He who desires peace, prepare for war?

    That's a suitable signature for one who flys the horse of Solomon the wise!

  6. It comes from "Epitoma Rei Militaris," by Vegetius. The original Latin is: "Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum" and was later adopted as their moto by the Roman legions.

    Seems a fair enough in these 'interesting times' of more to do and fewer with which to do it, especially for someone with a pegasus. Afterall, look what happened to the Roman Empire when they cut back on their defence spending...

    You've got a lot of brass, snake boy!
