Common Army Sayings

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. "When the pin comes out the end, Mr grenade is not your friend"
    Anyone else have any tidbits of rhyming wisdom from the forces?
  2. It was a dark and stormy night, Belfast was not alright.
    Or summat.

  6. That's shit.

    It doesn't rhyme.

    The pin doesn't go in the end.

    The pin can't come out it has to be pulled out.

    There's a fly off lever retaining clip for extra safety.

    The grenade can be a great friend when used properly.

    Shite, shite, shite
