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. John Reif has announced that the detachment of 6 GR-7 Harriers will now stay in Afghanistan until 31 Mar 07.

    No real surprise there in my opinion but i wonder whether this will affect the Govts figures for the total number of troops allowed to be deployed in theatre.

  2. As he visited UK troops in Afghanistan, Defence Secretary John Reid said the Harriers were "an essential tool".

    The Harriers returned the compliment "He's a real tool" said one of them. "But not essential" it concluded.
  3. This will be the same John Reid who yesterday said that reports that the military had asked for more support in the 'Stan were 'wholly untrue', then.
