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. From the BBC:

    I think I'll stick to whisky and prozac, thanks.

  2. I think this report, on the face of it, is spot on. In my experience, when on operations I'm alert, focused and positive; it's adjusting back to a normal tempo of life which is more problematic, particularly when I can't make my wife and kids jump to attention and salute when I enter the ops room... er... I mean the kitchen in the morning.
  3. Chickpea,

    Couldn't agree more. It's very frustrating and stressful returning to the chaotic environment of family life after the relative order and discipline of 6 months on ops. It unbalances the family too, who have clearly got into a routine without you.

  4. what like shagging the family officer and spending your Lssa on crap
  5. So going on Ops is less depressing than being in Colchester??
  6. Nannysackthesage,

    Having lived in Colchester I think that may very well be the case!
