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. Yes you're right - the Irish Guards don't wear a plume I believe.
     
  2. Not Irish no shamrock coller badge and no blue plume.

    Defo Grenadier Guards.
     
  3. That's all well and good but the chav on the front cover is definitelya Mick - and he hasn't shaved!
     
  4. And is that a trace of a cheeky little goatee beard I see there on his chin?
     
  5. There`s nothing chav about the Irish Guards.
     
  6. Not sure who should carry the can:

    The Gurdsman for not shaving properly.
    The NCO/Officer who inspected him.
    The photographer who didn't notice the beard.
    The picture editor who didn't retouch the picture.

    Pretty poor show and it sticks out like, well, an unshaved chin, really...
     
  7. Well said sir! There's more gentrified blood in the Micks than in the Almanach de Gotha and Burke's combined.
     
  8. Did anyone else have to google 'Almanach de Gotha'?

    come on, admit it...

    Tricam.
     
  9. has anyone got a photo of the guardsman with the beard so i can work some photoshop magic on it?
     
  10. Well, someone had to keep a record of all that Teutonic in-breeding.
     
  11. Here you go:
