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. Chinese soldiers on the border with north-east India are sneaking across unofficially to collect a rare caterpillar fungus called the "Love Flower". Sounds a bit like troops pinching potatoes out of a field, only more exotic.

    I wonder what the Chinese offer to trade when they get caught. There must be a limit to the market for red star cap badges.
