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:

  2. I don't know the subject at all but "Beneath Hill 60" (about the )1st Australian Tunnelling Company is based on an account or diaries from one Captain Woodward. Nice to see that some important areas from those times still survive so they can be investigated.
     
  3. Looks good. Not as big as Vimy (inevitably) but probably more evocative and impressive.

    I think it's one good reason to take my old farts tour back to the Somme in 2014 (Normandy in 2013).

  5. I have been part of the dig since last year and it has been an awe inspiring pleasure, underground i was lost for words.
