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. Tonight is the last night of existence for the Royal Scots, KOSB, Royal Highland Fusiliers, Highlanders, Black Watch, and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Tomorrow they are disbanded, and the troops reformed into battalions of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. A small parade takes place at Edinburgh Castle, with a few others at bn locations around the world. A sad day.

    Indeed!
    But as these regiments pass out into the annels of history,we must not forget just what a brave & proud history they have.Like too many family regiment's over the years that have fell to our government,they will be remembered.
    I raise my Whisky glass in your honour.

  3. I will be sampling a 12yr old Glenfiddich in memory of their history and to wish them the best for the future.
     
  4. It's a time to remember the past but also, to look forward to the future.

  5. Hear, Hear.

    A wee dram raised as they celebrate the end of their last day.

    I hope that many more days follow, though in slightly new guises.

  6. Good wishes going forwards for the new face of Scottish Infantry but let us not forget the shabby way in which this has come about nor who the architects and contributors have been.
