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. Just watched Rebecca Adlington grab another gold and totally smash the world record for the 800m freestyle.

    Literally left all her competitors trailing in her wake!

    Damned well done girl!

    Saying on the BBC she won by 6 seconds
    Thats some swimming

    Wish the Boxing team had thought to hang round with the swimmers they might have learned something
  3. It was a magnificent swim. She totally dominated from the start and never tired.

    Just watching her strut around wth the Union flag draped on the shoulders at the mo, great stuff!

    Boxing has been a tad disappointing so far but i'm still confident of a medal or two.

    Our sailors will do the business over the weekend, keep the faith!

  4. Upside down, no less ;)
  5. cracking day for the GB team.....9 medals...4 Golds....Not a bad day

    slightly overshadowed by the ridiculous 9.68 second 100m mens final

    1. The Royal Navy

    And don't forget Lt Peter Reed RN winning a gold for rowing. Nice to see he thanked the Navy in his interview after the race. I believe there are a few servicemen in the GB team.

    I know we have Lt Cdr Penny Clark in the sailing as well.
