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. aplogies if this is posted elsewhere (I couldn't find it!)


  2. And you think that Gordon gives a monkeys?
  3. God flash backs to remembering the old days crusader 80 and lionheart.
  4. Stands to reason, if you're spending all your time doing one kind of work you can't be training for another.

    Of course, the lick-and-a-promise civvy definition of training is rather different from the Forces version, which doesn't aid comprehension.
  5. I remember those days well, living in holes in the ground on various rivers and in various forests but surely we will never see war training of that type again, the way of war seems to have changed to high intensity small unit war fighting without the use of massed armour so why would there be any need to plan on that scale, unless were getting ready for Gulf War III!!
    Tehran looks as much a sh!thole as Baghdad!!!
  6. Do they still dig trenches and live in them today?
