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. An attack on a British convoy in Iraq has caused casualties, the Ministry of Defence says.
    A spokesman said there had been a number of casualties but was unable to give further details.

    Iraqi police officials say a roadside bomb exploded on Sunday in the Kahla area, 25 miles south of Amarah.

    British forces sealed off the area and a helicopter evacuated casualties. No details have been given on the number of injured or how badly hurt they are.
