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. So, if you could be posted on attachment or deployment on an FTRS for 3 months + , where would you like to go?

    Destinations are only restricted by a British Military prescence,  (no matter how small)

    Kingston Jamaica has got to be near the top of everyones list.

    Of those training/liaison things with the Aussies/Kiwi's.

    Well luckily the criteria of having to have a Brit Mil presence doesn't get rid of many countries!

    I fancy the Bahamas Defence Force, the Barbados Defence Force, or maybe Nepal.  Sunny/beach, or good mountains.  Tough choice.

    Her Majesties Liaison Officer to Obertauern, Austria.

    Which means I might launch a serious post to find out where the ski lodges are...


    Dec 1st to March 1st
  6. Bermuda for me, was there in the early 70's when Dad was still serving, what an outstandingly beautiful place

    Lived in Jamaica at Up Park Camp (JDF) too, Kingston has degenerated into downtown Beirut, but I live in hope for places becoming available for Exercise "Red Stripe"

    Yep, attachment to the Jamaica or Bermudan Defence Force wouldn't hurt for 6 months :)

  7. Id love to have a few months in a jungle somwere just to see how bad it is and to see if i could cope!! whats the chances of that though??
  8. You may have just missed the boat on that one.

  9. where does the US Army train it's female recruits? if such a place exists then I'd like to be provost staff there for my FTRS:

    Hundreds of young lasses, away from home for the first time, impressionable, nubile, slightly scared, in trouble... abuse of power doesn't get any better than that!
  10. You are clearly talking about a different US Army to the one which inhabited/passed through Camp Arifjan at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom and where the following grafitti was observed on the wall of a rather smelly chemical "john".

    "Goddamn, those Brit chicks are hot!"

    presumably written by an envious member of our former colony's armed forces and to which a (presumably British) writer had replied:

    "That's because they don't eat f*cking pizza for breakfast!"

    Note: This vaguely amusing anecdote is best enjoyed if read in the manner of the late Cyril Fletcher on "That's Life".
  11. I fancy being a door gunner somewhere afgan , iraq ,hackney :D all the fun of machine guns no tabbing ,
  12. physio for the Army angling team if they ever go on a world tour!
