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. i know we had a thread a while back for all those little trade training catchphrases like "prophets not historians", but can't find it.

    sometimes you find useful little phrases in the unlikeliest places. i've got a fridge magnet which really belongs on the fridge in the A3 Intelligence course coffee room:

    "Listen for the creak of the bow, not the rush of the arrow."

    apparently it's a quote from a book called "Words are not things" by a bloke called Jack Gardner. never heard of it, but i liked the phrase :)
  2. I thought this thread was going to be about the noise a can of cider made when you opened it.

    It's not, therefore:

  3. She was only a west country cook, but she still liked a c0ck in cider

    hark the sound of a taxi without...........
  4. I've heard it before CR=CR, I always thought it was Japanese.
  6. "Kureba mukae, Sareba okuri"

    When an attacker comes**, welcome him, the send him on his way.

    3 Para Mortars motto. :D

    ** approaches.
  7. Another new monitor required! They're called PFTs now..........
  8. Ah Alfie Boy, back safe and sound. how are you doing?
  9. One is fairly cool thank you CR :D
  10. Its 20% the size of wales, and will take 45 minutes from start to finish.
  11. 'Never assume the obvious'.......... said to me a lot of years ago and still applies today.
  12. How about Jack Sparrow's:

    "You can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest. Honestly, it's the honest ones you want to watch out for, 'cause you can never predict if they're going to do something incredibly stupid."
  13. Talking about Fridge Magnets, Cookery & Quotes, I have one Fridge Magnet I try to adhere to as much as humanly possible:

    "I Love to Cook with Wine - Sometimes I even add it to the Food"
  14. for the CI side of the house, i give you the inimitable Dr Gregory House:

    "Everybody lies."

    Mrs BA has a fridge magnet that says 'Hang onto your husband - He may come back into fashion'. Works for me.
