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:

  2. I take it we have some airframes worthy of flying from it then.....
  3. Now that we have got an aircraft carrier back perhaps all those who moan about us not having one will shut up. And don't tell me that we haven't got any aeroplanes to fly off it because that can't be important since we're building a new one and it might not have aircraft.
  4. The imperial war musuim as a few if they are needed.

    Those of us who bothered to read the link saw that she is now employed "as Britain's on-call helicopter carrier".

    So in the absence of Harriers, the chance of there being no moaning about flying aeroplanes (by which I don't personally include wockas) off the Lusty rates somewhere between Bob Hope and No Hope.
  6. I did read the link but we can still sail it along the coastline of Johnnie Foreigner. He might have not have read the link.
