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:


    I'm bored, so I decided, instead of drinking myself into oblivion, I would do something creative and useful and put them out on the intardnet on my blog type thing.

    I will include pictures and updates. It will be cool. Maybe.

    I'm using my scanner which has a program that recognizes the letters and words on a printed page and coverts the whole mess into a Word document. Luckily, I have the neat typed copies Dad made much later when he had some type of early crap computer, and these are transferring quite nicely.

    So, no, I am not re-typing every one of Dad's 45 or so Vietnam articles. That would be silly and improper and imprudent and ponderous! Pretty much.

    Additionally, I am not doing much editing, because I know that would pish Dad off! A few spelling and syntax errors, and references to my uncle's full name, are all I've changed so far...

    Any comments, concerns, suggestions will be considered.
  2. A great idea, I imagine it would be very useful for war studies students (like me).

    Good luck :)
  3. Nice stuff thanks.
