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. Whoever thought that Krauts in general have no sense of humour should get a load of this site:

    It's squaddie humour at its finest. Particular gems are:

    Aufklatscher - landing with a smack - paratrooper.
    Bärenfotze - bear's fanny - fur-lined winter hat.
    Cafe Eichmann - I love this one, it describes the CS-gas chamber.
    Disco-Litze - decoration on officers' epaulettes.
    Handbagger - literally hand-operated/sized JCB - folding shovel.
    Tupperteil - G36, because of the many plastic parts.
