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. I have recently passed my Class 1 CMT course and going on my first tour in a few weeks. I wanted to know from other peoples experience what would be good things to take that are not issued. Anything that would make my life out there a little more easier! Thanks.

  2. Have a look in the QM's section - you'll find lots of posts with advice regarding what to take and what not to take.

  3. Matter of interest, what unit are you with?
     
  4. Errrr OPSEC??????
     
  5. Don't be an idiot. The MOD website published the Orbat already. Just like they do for every tour.
     
  6. Whilst in Kabul, have a look for the Chinese restaurants of which there are three. One of them (I cant remember which one) isn't actually a restaurant it's a knocking shop. The girls are all Chinese (there were no Russkies when I was there) and all as rough as bears arses, but quite good fun. They all thought it was hilarious when we walked in and demanded a chinky take away.
