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. is that really worth a thread?
  2. Definitely.
  3. Didn't Radar in M*A*S*H get to become a Corporal Captain to drink in the Officers Bar?

    And The Sun the paper of the humble soldier getting it wrong, never!
  4. He WALKED to safety with 32 wounds to his legs and groin? :omg: :omfg: Wow! That's nails alright. :1: Good on yer, Lance Colonel Spooner. :p
  5. I know of one or two WO2s who would be put out to learn they were second class.
  6. It's the Scum, you're generally quite lucky if they manage to get the date right.

    The mouth breathers who read it won't know the different, will they?
  7. The Beeb had a Lance Staff Corporal on their special from Afghan this week.

    If they can't get the basics right, how can the important stuff be believed?
  8. No.
  9. See those HCR ranks.... :D
  10. he's one of my corporal's at catterick he's absolute ledgend!
  11. Nice work by the Matelot!
  12. Well we have our own Lance Private Jones do we not?
  13. And at Detmold we had a Regimental Corporal Major.

    Can't see the fuss. I had (at the time) two stripes up as well. :roll:
  14. Midlands Today reported intervieved a Lt "Cnl" CO on the Mercians return to Belfast this week too.

    They are making the ranks up as they go along!!
