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. Just been asked about Mr Chad, WW2, can any old Radio Ops out there confirm that the original was drawn from radio/electrical? symbols?
    Seem to have a recollection of this but not being R/O I have drawn what I can recall.

  4. Sorry. :)

    We could always talk about something else. Like perhaps the weather.
  5. It was meant to be sunny today but its been cloudy and overcast, with a few rain showers. Still, at least my water but gets re-filled
  6. I could say I'm happy for your butt but I won't.

    Sunny and warm here in France but it's going to get colder at the weekend. Summer's not quite here yet.
  7. A bit cloudy and windy here in Morocco, met office says their might be light rain later, ho hum!

    I remember Chad being used as a slight piss take on shortages after WW2! eg. Wot no more banana's, etc!
