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. BBC Scotland are reporting that a potentially explosive device/object has been found at(of all places)a waste recycling plant at Sighthill in Edinburgh. EOD has been called out to examine and traffic has been diverted.

    Insert your own "thousands of pounds worth of improvements" joke here now.
  3. If an IED went off in Sighthill it could easily cause 50 pence worth of damage.
  4. More (of a) smack expected than a bang.
  5. Gentlemen, the above comments are vile accuracies! The residents of Sighthill resemble your remarks!

    If it does turn out to be an attempted terrorist attack, it's a bloody strange choice of target. Unless this was meant as a dry run...
  6. More than likely someone is carrying out home improvements and wanted to save on the costs of a mini-digger
  7. The area should be given its proper name

  8. Harsh, but fair and accurate...
  9. If it's a suspicious object round there, it's about 3 by 2 inches, made of boiled down animal fats in a special weatherproof wrapping, with the cryptic warning message 'Imperial Leather'.
  10. What, a vitamin?

    Made Oi larf, that did.

    Alternatively. it may be a piece of fruit.
  12. A what of what?
  13. Threat assessment?
  14. Sod it. The bomb can look after itself.
  15. News update, I am poised looking out my window waiting for the explosion to see the shoitehole go up in smoke but still nothing
