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. Watching the Trooping on saturday and one of the presenters called the RSM the infanrymans' infantryman,or words to that effect.

    What in the opinion of the infantrymen here makes a good infantryman?
  2. The ability to read your posts without falling asleep
  3. Several ranks of well pressed red tunics, the balls to stand and wait until your see the whites of there eyes...

    hang on..that was Zulu..d'oh!
  4. The ability to fire three rounds a minute in any weather
  5. The ability to knock one out at any type of low grade pornography!
  6. The ability to get all those horses to march in step and not dump a load in front of Her Majesty. I thought the infantry didn't have horses.
  7. You can get more infantry soldiers in a Wolf than a horse :p
