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. Does any one know if, there are chess pieces available that represent the current British Army?

  9. Don't buy the U.S version, every time you capture a piece you have to put a fcukin' dog lead around its' neck.
     
  10. Roger.
     
  11. And 13.6 % of the white set are now black.

    Edited to say that a black pawn is wearing the VC.
     
  12. Not forgetting about 20% have sick notes and therefore do not have to move :lol:
     
  13. And the Bishops are now Imams
     
  14. The Knights are all now pop stars, sports personalities or anyone else who happens to be Tony's mate.
     
  15. I knew I should not of put this in the NAAFI. Tis, funny though.
