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. It is.

    The Job is the only place of detention where you get no credit for good behaviour.

    I think I was extremely lucky to have served when I served. I do feel for today's young serving officers but I think they will end up treating it as a job and not think twice about leaving when a better offer comes along.
    The trouble is in this day and age decent well paid jobs are hard to come by unless you are well connected or have qualifications coming out of your arse. I feel for today's youngsters, the country is over populated and things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.

  5. Grrr you internet hard man.

  6. The Court of Public Opinion at work?
  7. Too soon to say. Just because the Crown Office have agreed to review the sentence doesn't mean they will appeal it, nor that any appeal would be successful. However, without the outrage over the sentence and the media coverage up here, it might not have even gotten this far.

  8. Quite an interesting video about Taser and use of force options in general.
