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. Saw on Facebook that the kids have voted for the best CCF in the country. Do you agree with their votes? Of course this could be tainted by the kids actually on Facebook However, I think that the majority of kids are.

  2. I know of a number of Abingdon School ex-CCF guys who are on Facebook, so I'd say that those numbers aren't exactly representative of the overall CCF population.
  3. You tube is good for CCF videos. By good, I mean shocking. Of course.

    Just the haircuts and half-arsed lazy turnout nearly gave me an aneurism. Never mind their ideas of Section battle drills/REEF or skill at arms.

    Okay, its meant to be a bit of fun, but some of them were clearly dangerous, and a good number of them don't look to be enjoying it either.
  4. Doesn't help that some CCFs are compulsory, or semi compulsory (by which I mean, you join in whichever year and have to choose one of three 'service activities', which could be CCF, conservation and helping old folks out at their home [guess they call that community service these days]); how many people of age 13 would want to do the latter two? Probably a sad reflection on society, in ways.
