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. Just watched Prime Minsiters Questions on TV. In it Tory MP Patrick Mercer (who I think was a TA officer on Telic 1 or 2) says thet the GOC of MND SE in Basrah has asked for more troops in order to seal the border with Iran and stop weapons, IEDs etc being smuggled accros the border. A bit unfortunate that this comes just a few days after PM said troops might be out in a year.
