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 as you're thinking of giving up on Britain as everything's falling apart, there's nothing left to be proud of anymore etc. etc, this is announced:

    Alright so we're in the middle of a financial crisis, the government don't seem to be able to find their collective backsides with both hands & a Polaroid camera and guys are coming back from sandy places with fewer body parts than they left with - here at least is something to stir the blood.

    A cynic would point out that, barring the lending of a largely worn-out Typhoon test engine and (presumably) the release of Wing Commander Green from his RAF duties for a while, the Govt aren't putting any money/resources in and are making a fair bit of capital out of it.

    Perhaps, but it's still nice to see.
    Had I a few million to spare, they would be third on the list after the RBL and Macmillan Nurses.

  2. Both as mad as a Moonshine deficient Appalachian.

    Absolutely superb.
