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. tonight I have parted ways with the latest in a long line of dorris's! Yet, I've been out with the lads & now read some shit on here (under the influence), which has made me laugh & realise that life isn't that serious!

    Why do/did you love being in the army?
  2. Because I don't actually do much real work.

  3. I can't really remember much, it was far too long ago and I was pissed most of the time!
  4. Every day was something different. No matter where you were posted, there was always someone there you knew who'd greet you like a long lost mucker and get the first round in. Civvies looked at you in awe when you said you were serving. Watching the same civvy's jaw dropping when you related some of the things you'd done/seen/heard. Twenty years passing and meeting up with someone you'd served with and it was like you'd just seen them yesterday.

  5. Working with blokes you coud trust with your life (if not your wife), in places you wouldn't otherwise see, for an employer who would fund your skydiving/skiing/water-skiing/climbing habit as a matter of essential professional development, with the prospect of being at centre stage (OK - unacknowledged) of history (be it burying Monty, the Fall Of The Wall, or marrying Kate) . . . wot's not to love . .
