Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. I recently went to Fort Henry on the US Canadian boarder, completed in 1832 and manned by the British Army for many years.

    It's a fascinating place, fully restored and has a volunteer (civilian) historic guard.

    Whilst watching their drill it seemed quite different to the British and Canadian drill (which are almost the same as one another)

    I was wondering if anyone can tell if the drill that they are doing is genuine old British 1800s or they have just made it up.

    there is loads of footage on you tube, here is one link-
