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. What grave stones have you seen, that made you chuckle inappropriately?

    I'll start it off with this one I saw, as I was at the funeral of the g/f's father:

    Quite a famous one in Charlton Cemetery not far from the old RA Barracks.

    Some 19th century officer was accidentally shot by his batman.

    At the bottom of the stone it says 'Well done oh faithful servant'.

    Or something very similar.

    On Spike Milligan's gravestone:

    "I Told You I Was Ill".
  5. As in life so in death lies a bat of renown,
    Slain by a lorry (three ton);
    His innings is over, his bat is laid down:
    To the end a poor judge of a run.

    (Quoting by memory from a book long ago)

    Here lie the bones of Elizabeth Charlotte
    Born a virgin, died a harlot
    She was aye a virgin at seventeen
    And that's a rare thing in Aberdeen
  7. Carn't see it all as new posts still invading threads
  8. thats better.
  9. I'll laugh my tits off when I see Messrs Bliar's and Brown's.

  10. Not seen myself but I have a little book (Eccentric Epitaphs) so if you will allow me here are a few:

    Here lies the body of Janathan Ground,
    Who was lost at sea and never found.
    (In Ireland - of course!)


    Does worm eat Worme?...

    An epitaph read:

    Here I lie
    Snug as a bug in a rug

    An envious relative instructed that he be buried in an adjoining grave with the following inscription above him:

    Here I lie
    Snugger that that other bugger.

    From an auctioneers grave in New York:

    Going, Going, Gone.

    From a grave in Yorkshire:

    Here lies my poor wife,
    without bed or blanket,
    But dead as a door-nail,
    God be thanked.

    Finally on the grave of a two week old baby in Suffolk:

    Came in,
    Looked about;
    Didn't like it
    Went out.


  11. Err... Maybe Eccentric Epitaphs by Michelle Lovric?

  12. like Osama they should be buried at sea as soon as possible live or dead.
  13. Epitaph of a computer geek:

  14. My Uncles,

    Marcus *******

    A loving Father, Brother and Friend.

    Was he fuck, even in his hospice the cunt couldnt ease up on the nastiness, when he popped off in his pit he farted for about 20 seconds without a break rendering my younger cousin crippled with delight as he stuffed his hand in his mouth so as not to offend our Aunt.
