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. Anyone read this book then :?: Strange they have a picture of a US soldier in the prone in a book about the British Army.

    Good read by all accounts. :lol: :lol:
     
  2. What a crock of sh!t
     
  3. As a young lad or lass nowadays, you can go to our local college and do an Army preparation course.

  4. Where's the section on how to drink like a fish and swear like a trooper? and how come the ' official ' army T-shirt comes with the warning ' size and colour may vary'? aren't army T-shirts all the same? [ maybe some lucky few get the ones in the special Hereford Boathouse/SAS colour...]
     
  5. I always love it when people are given the oportunity to practice tests to get a better score :roll:

    They get to study the test, get 100% and selected as an avanced nuclear brainsurgeon 8O

    Obviously until they start the trade course and realise they don't know their arrse from their elbow :cry:

    Still I suppose they'd have a glittering career as an officer :twisted:
     
  6. When I sat my entrance exam, the question paper was marked with a small dot on each question. I tried to ignore this and answer myself, but realised that every one had the correct answer. Naturally, I scored 100% and look where it got me!!! 8O :lol:
     
  7. Wtf as this got to do with soldiering? Apart for running a mess dinner night
     
  8. Who knows, but if the course increases the number of Jocks that join, who gives a toss.
