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. Today is the 97th anniversary of the London Scottish becoming the first Territorial Army unit to go into the line next to the Regular Army.

    They fought at Messines ridge, they held their ground and many of them hold it still.
