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. I've just heard that although Help for Heroes have raised the £3.5 million or so to pay for the pool at Headley Court Defence Estates have said that they cannot use their own contractor, they have to use Defence Estates and they will charge £7 million for the same job!!!!!
  2. Start the bus :x
  3. Got to pay for "Fred the Shread's pension somehow"?

    I can head a Law Suit being built as we speak . . I HOPE!
  4. WTF????
  5. Where did you hear this? Or are you just fishing? Let's have something to back up your uncorroborated post.
  6. Have all the newspapers and other media outlest been alerted?
  7. well thats a good first post - turn up and post a claim without any independent corroboration.

    How about a credible source or any evidence beyond "NAAFI bar gossip"?
  8. It was briefed by an OF5 last week
  9. Hey everyone, 1 (UK) Armd Div is about to be disbanded. Afghan has proven recently that we have no need of heavy armour so the Armd Bdes are going.

    (Or so some lad in the NAAFI said last night)
