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 remember the days when we got free milk in school. These were also the days when i would que up for my "your family are shit at life" free dinner token worth £1.20. I would sell the token for £1 which bought me 4 fags (cigarettes if you're american).

    One christmas I recieved a second hand game of connect 4 which was selotaped. I fucking loved it.

    Anyway this week i bought my 2 Padbrats a playstation each (so I have something to take off them when they piss me off) and it struck me how I spoil them and how much they need punching.

    Get your horror stories out and tell me how poor you were (or rich for you RAF chappies) as a kid.
  2. we were so poor when i was a kid we had to wank the dog to feed the cat!

  7. I used to dream off steam. We had drainwater & used Scotchbrite. We dreamt of Iron you rich fucker. We all had polio & rickets as childer.

  9. I was a child in the fifties Times were hard,I can still remember my father bitching about having to pay £1 for his four gallons of petrol, and christmasses were tight...I only got the top of the range Meccano set, playstations indeed! ..and I got a cowboy there.
    But seriously it was a degrading time for anyone on school-dinners then as there was a stigma attached to it.

  10. Socks! Socks! We didn't have socks. Or feet. Just giant working-class callouses on the ends of our ankles.
  11. A childhood? You lucky barstewards... we were that poor when we were born we went straight down pit.

  12. We were so poor that we had to camp, in a tent of all things, on our continental holidays :)
  13. You could afford DREAMS! You had DRAINS! Dunno what the Scot stuff is. We stopped playing polio when we had to eat the 'orse, and we couldn't play rickets cos there wasn't a chain of flat ground for miles around. Posh git!
