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. Listening to Classic FM @ 071456Z NOV 09. Howard Goodall, of Blackadder theme fame, played part of Walton's Henry V suite, specifically noting that it represented the shoeing delivered to the French by the Welsh and English 'Task Force'. He read out the famous words

    And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

    Then dedicated the track to 'Our Boys in Hellmand' :)
