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 anyone know where to find out how much money it costs the goverment to run/maintain the Army? Per year/6 months, or any related info? asked google but he doesn't know! cheers.

  4. Edited for being to slow.

    Story of my fcuking life that is :(
     
  5. I Googled "Defence Budget UK". That was the first link I got. :D

    Simple when you know how.
     
  6. No sweat mate, cos on judgement day when the quick and the dead are tapping the boards, we slow fcukers can slope off to the colonel.
     
  7. Don't want to be a stickler but our man asked how much it costs to run the Army. What we've shown him is the Defence Budget. There's more to UK Defence than just the Army. The Navy for example; I've heard that their ship costs a lot to run.

    What we really need is an efficiency comparitor between the services, a sort of MPG for defence, except we could compare operational effect to £ spent. That'll be fun.
