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. Although the war in Iraq is/was tragic, this is a lighter note from Geoff Hoon.

    "Umm Qasr is a city similar to Southampton," UK ex-defence minister Geoff Hoon said in the Commons yesterday. "He's either never been to Southampton, or he's never been to Umm Qasr" says a British squaddie patrolling Umm Qasr. Another soldier added: "There's no beer, no prostitutes and people are shooting at us. It's more like Portsmouth".
  2. And I thought the description applied to down town Rotherham too.....
  3. Nah sounds more like hackney in east london
