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:

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    From The Times. At last they appear to be taking it seriously, only 7 years late.

  2. Do we have the manpower to do this ??
  3. I think we do have the man power to put into theatre, especially with the drawing down of Iraq.

    However it'll probably come with a sacrifice elsewhere, lads not quite getting their 18 months between tours most likely.
  4. So they will be 2,000 of the troops that the politicians promised wouldn't be re-deployed from Iraq then.

    Is there anything this lying bunch of cnuts can be trusted on?

    Everyone knew that more troops were needed and would have to be deployed, but Milliband Broone and co kept denying there was any plan to do so. No-one doubts the need for more troops and kit, but we are not established or funded to support this level of operation. A major review and increase in funding is needed if we are to continue punching above our weight.
