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. I really don't know what to think about this! Said soldier, not a Brit, phones home from Afganistan to say goodbye to Mummy, in case he doesn't come back... their base has been hit by a couple of rockets, one casualty. Mummy ain't a happy bunny.

    What's the form?
     
  2. Is there a link?
     
  3. must be a sprog. and a first tour for him/her.
     
  4. No, no link... Mummy is a friend of a friend.
     
  5. Now, considering all the facts here, would i be a million miles out if i said he were italian/french?

    (if not, with some italian/french in his bloodline?)

    needs to be taken out and slapped around a bit, then a severe smack and grounded for a month when he gets home. Stupid little idiot. Thats what final letters are for.
     
  7. When deployed, I wrote a couple of letters (parents, kids, friends etc) that were kept sealed 'just in case'.

    When I got back, I shredded them.

  9. Not a million miles out... but a few hundred...

    And as for not knowing what to think... that was a lie... never use the I might die line... unless it's for a shag. Poor mum, how dare he do that to her! You hold it in, or write it down without sending it, and tell your stories once they've got you home safe. The families suffer too when we're away... but you don't hear them blubbing. Selfish was my vote.
     
  10. I came home from Bos to do a brief at UNTAT. I did the brief - Friday! - so had a weekend to play with. Grabbed payphone at Warminster and rang everybody I knew. Instead of being thrilled that I was 'back from the war', they were all a bit jack and had plans - none of which were flexible enough to include me at the eleventh hour. So I went on the piss in the 'Shot. I met a bird who was interested but obviously shy about delivering on the first date. I rolled out the "You know, I could be dead this time next week..." line, looking all proud and brave... and randy as fcuk probably. Target round, aye-thang-yow!
     
  11. My Hero! well done that man.

    Agree with the sentiment - some thing "folks back home" just dont need to know - this is also why i think media should be kept away from conflicts. imagine if his mum is watching the news and sees little johnny getting slotted at 9pm, and again at 10pm then hearing about it over cornflakes on the radio then again seeing it in the paper.

    Good drills Cuddles but pulling girls in the 'shot is just dangerous, especially if they're found in cheeks!
