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. Doing this years for SSAFA should any of you good people care to sponsor me.
    It's SSAFA's 125th anniversary year and as I'm also a caseworker for them I thought I'd try and raise some loot for them.
