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:

    All, This is early notice, but I have had a couple of enquiries as to whether we'll be doing Weymouth again this year, and when it will be.

    For now, just note in your diaries, but I shall be asking for cake-minded volunteers nearer the time to help with setting up and dismantling the stall, selling various items, rattling collecting tins, eating cake, making brews and keeping the Parachute Regimental Association from nicking all the cake :)

    Alfredo!!! You darling Man!! I thought you'd gone!

    I do hope you'll be 'out to play' with us this year.

    Could I ask you to exercise your charm on the lovely Charlie, and blag us a couple of extra car parking passes please? I've lost your phone number. My new smart phone is smarter than I am :-(

    Dear GRB, in view of the usual proximity of PARA people, would you like Cpl Arnhem to join the party?
    One more handsome tin-rattler!!

    Fast response, please. As you know, I'm about to go away. Any comms channel will do ... I'm passing the Post Office in the morning.

    c/o The Post Office, Milborne St. Andrew, Blandford Forum, Dorset. DT11 0JF please, old thing. Philip the Postmaster is a keen helper, and holds parcels for me. He;'s also happy to fill out customs forms for the various auction parcels I send across the world. Not bad for the original Grumpy Old Man!
