Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me if moustaches were allowed on Other Ranks in 1939-40, either on Home Service or in the BEF in France?

    Thanks very much.
  2. Close inspection of photographic archives of the same should provide you with the answer. Get Googling.
  3. That's really helpful - thank you. In normal circs I would do but I need the answer as soon as, hence this question.
  4. Just to answer the querry. Pretty much nope BEF in WWI yes-ish. But BEF WWII Nope
  5. Thanks, Kit.
