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'm tryring to get hold of a copy of General Slim's speech to Officers(l about seting an example the usual stuff) but am having no luck on the web or even Ebay. All I want is a transcript - I've seen it in a friends bathroom but haven't come across it anywhere else. Has anyone got any ideas? is it in a book does anyone know? would be grateful for any ideas.

    Cracking site, must get the Old man to join before it's too late!
  3. I like Lord Slim's address to his motor-cycle outriders when he was GG of Australia. Asked to inspect them one day by their inspector, the great man said "When first I inspected your uniforms I thought you had used them to clean your motor bikes, now having inspected your machines I can see this was not the case."
