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. Stumbling around d'net recently I came across this record by Mitch Millar which we used to listen to in Benghazi in 1966, courtesy of BFBS. ( Does it still exist...BFBS that is?) Anyway the BBC refused to play it when I requested it on Sounds of the Sixties....something to do with political correctness..whatever that is. Anyway the sounds of a drunken letter writer sounds as true today as it was when we actually wrote letters. What do you the younger generation think of this.....does it sing???? Or are you politically correct too....with a constrained sense of humour?
