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. A guy I work with who is something of a walt has come into work with a long face saying his friend has been blown up in afghanistan... I don't recall any casualties since 01/01/2011. Am I correct?
  2. Possibly his friend was a member of the Taliban????
  3. maybe hes trying to scrounge a day of work.... by being a cnut
  4. Why don't ask for details about, His 'mates' name when, where & how for example.......................... that should answer the Walt and allegiance questions!

    Short answer - no.
  6. It was Gary Windasses mate ?
  7. Was it kia? there have been a few injured since December that have come back to the UK.
  8. Last time I did the sums, it looked like (roughly) 9.5 troops get wounded (however slightly/seriously) for every one killed in AFG. Very rarely do the wounded get a mention in the press - so it is not safe to assume that he's making it up.
  9. There have definitely been injuries this month, they just havent been reported.
  10. Concur. I know at least one recently "deployed" CVO for a VSI. Sadly :(
