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. Not much information as yet but BBC are reporting an exchange of fire in Al-Amarah in which one British soldier has been wounded. The details are here:

    I recently sat getting mortared in CAN for six months so I hope some of the perpetrators got brassed up!
    More importantly though, sincerely hope the Brit casualty makes a speedy recovery, get well soon mate.
  2. My bf is based in the base concerned. He emailed this today: It was a pretty big battle, the guy who was shot was hit in the face, but reports say that he should be ok. Needless to say I will be sleeping in my body armour, cause they're sure to mortar the camp to shit tonight.
