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. Lancashire win the Cricket County Championship for the first time since 1934 – and Yorkshire got relegated too! Stitch that Yorkies.

    *Opens a nice bottle of red to celebrate.
