Good News!

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. It's not really "current affairs", but in the run up to Christmas I thought this forum could do with some good news.

    A mate of mine has just returned from Afghanistan with 1WFR (sorry, 2 Mercian). Despite being p*ssed off initially about having to parade all over the place, it seems to have shoved the Army into the public light, and he's received a lot of attention for it.

    Having been invited out almost every night since he got back, and slept around half the local university, the lucky tw*t is living on cloud 9 at the moment!

    Let's hope the other lads are receiving the same treatment this Xmas.
  2. I think I know the Uni. Hope he boiled them first.
  3. “spend 6 months in Afgan being shot at by sand bunnies in return for 6 months shooting your load up slutty students”

    It could make for a good recruiting poster :D
  4. Similar to the enemy's recruitment drive in fact... Except ours are definitely not virgins!! :wink:
  5. We had the same after Gulf War 1 when I went home on leave back to Scunthorpe from Germany. One of he pubs is called the Desert Rat and they laid on free booze for a while to any squaddies who produced their MOD 90. Rat ARRSED
  6. Where do I sign up?

  7. Ord_Sgt

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    Seems like a fair deal to me :D
  8. Yes, only 3 months to push !!!

    Apperently the town of which my regiment is based has warned off the council and booked up places for when we get back, sqn/regt pissups, parade etc.. And a long weekend to soak up the atmosphere of it all before POTL and tea and medals.
