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:

  2. I get those winning notifications by phone e.g. "Congratulations. You have won a two week holiday in Upper Mongolia blah blah blah" to which I normally reply "Ooh thank you. Send it to me at my address, thanks" then I hang up. :)
  3. Knowing my luck I'd win a pair jimmy choos, a bicycle or a trekking holiday.

    I've never met anyone who wins these prizes either.

    Has any ARRSEr won anything decent?

    I've won £120 on the Premium Bonds, a fiver here and there on the Notional Lottery and that's about it. I don't go near phone call prizes. They only cost £3.50 a minute etc.

    I'll only post what I believe are genuine comps like the one above from the Dave Tv channel, Welcome to Switzerland etc.
  5. I won £1800 on the footy pools about 20 years ago. :)
  6. Won the Army Sports Lottery once and got another £300 from it this year. Apart from that ziltch.
  7. I've won some nice books from the Arrse Book club:eek:)

  8. Won an all expenses paid holiday to China for 7 days, with Panasonic. Basically took a photo of a boat on a loch and then you had to get people to vote for it. I asked the Arrse massive to vote and they did in their hundreds - thankyou. Stayed in a 5 star hotel, free alcohol and free escorted trips to all the sites. Also got 3 digital cameras.

    Also won a tomtom sat nav once on aviva insurance website and another in senior rates christmas draw!

    The last time I saw a page of tat prizes like that, was at a Screws Mess Summer Ball in 1982.

    Won a breadbin, used it for keeping wine in. Well known local dipso handyman once he'd finished handymanning decided to search for booze. Very tidily searched everywhere and failed miserably. It's still in use
  14. Ive won a laptop, 2 return flights to the uk,samsung navibot hoover, breakfast show mugs (several),box of muffins, i love heidi towel, erasure cd and learn japanese all from bfbs, a mountain bike at the screws mess (even though i was on sick leave after another knee op) and £3000 from the afcs for breaking my foot in afghan.I still enter comps as you have to be in them to win them. Also had a mate win £3000 on our B1 from the army lottery the week before we went to weymouth for a week.
  15. A nice Nigerian gentleman called me to state i had won £100,000. All i had to do was send him my bank details so he coud pay it in. I'll think of you all when i'm catching some rays on a posh island in Fiji.
