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. I'm getting fed up with hearing 'Friendly Fire' or 'Accidently Bombed/Shot' in media reports covering British deaths, I'd like to make a couple of points:

    a) 'Friendly Fire' becomes hostile when allied deaths occur.

    b) Bombs aren't dropped 'Accidently' nor are guns fired 'by mistake'. Both are initiated deliberatly at the time of engagement & only become 'accidents' when a sewage cart hits a windmill (ie lots of sh*t & a very big fan!)
