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's not really ablaze is it........

    It was probably an insurance job. It's First Sea Lord's new way of paying for more ships.
  3. Any news on the beer?

    Er....not really.....reading the thread title I thought perhaps the Cavvy had been set ablaze by some ned and the whole of the Grassmarket had been engulfed in a firestorm that would have brought a tender smile to 'Bomber' Harris's face.............just some smouldering insulation in a cold store then? ...ho and as they say hum....

    Can some one please ask The News sub editor who cleared this story just what the heck 'Edinburgh, a Type 42 destroyer returned back ,to Portsmouth just before Christmas ' actually means ?
