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. During a round up of yesterdays events,news footage of some squaddie types doing a sack race in some shitty Godforsaken sandy place.
    Did I see a dirigible in the backgound?
    I assume it was not for parachute training.
     
  2. Correct - back to the 19th century, spotting baloons.

    Back to thread now children....

    I noticed that the balloon was bright white. I understand it was in the French sector and is used to signal for miles around that "Nous ne playons pas avec vous Monsieur Iqubal".
