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. The BBC have a blurb about HRH going to the Falklands. Included is a piece from a royal correspondent who says

  9. It's because the rails have vanished from inside most of the wardrobes. Some residents have evidently tried to screw coathooks to the doors and walls but haven't been successful getting them to stay on - hardly surprising when they've used woodscrews in plasterboard.

    Over-the-door coathooks are the way to go. That and those telescopic wardrobe rails.

    Of course, the essential item is a mirror. There aren't many of those around and the silvering has come off those that are.
  10. It's a typo; it should read 'boat-hook'.
  11. Surely they mean an extra 'CROOK shepherds for the use' of, for catching you roomy for the night.
  12. He's been promoted to WO2 already?

    Mirror? Wtf does anyone with any tetosterone need a mirror for?
  14. I can shave without a mirror but keeping the testosterone-fuelled 'tache trimmed without one is just too risky.
  15. Isn't thermal underwear on the list?
