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. Right you've got GPS but unfortunately for you, your fate is in the non too steady hands of my pal, Vasco

    Never fear because help is here: Feed your co-ordinates into this little gem and hey presto it will even produce a little map - or chart if Vasco is involved...

  2. Useful if you are daft enough to buy a GPS that only gives out lat and long.

    Mine does map co-ord and for an extra couple of quid you can get one that produces a litle map in the palm of your hand.
  3. And at a junction, while indicating left, look right. Traffic from right - none- blink-blink-blink you let the clutch out (been balancing it) press on the gas...

    turn the wheel (oh f*ck its got power steering) and nose out left....

    mirrrors? before during after???...

    did ye smudge that print out in yer palm?

    Get a fkn co-pilot/nav chap!!! Or pullover...

    (a jumper is different)

    Your solution would be??? (I'm wrecked from a nite on the razz) I will need this advice by 1700hrs....

    Pulleese....?? Purty Puleese??....
  4. I have no idea what you are waffleing about.

    Please elaborate.

    For the record, I have a handheld GPS that kicks out grid co-ords. Used on occaision in the field, or when I am co-driving in a wagon.

    For Road work, I plan the route, write out a route card, and pull over to check said route card if I feel the need, or I can check the map.

    Pulleese allow the smack you ave been taking by the bucket load (it would seem) to wear off before reposting. Purty Puleese.
