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. Liechtenstein: no retaliation for Swiss 'invasion'
    Guardian Online
    Link
     
  2. the Swiss...

    one of the biggest armies in Europe (can mobilise 360,000 soldiers in 24 hours)

    3 billion US dollars each year on military spending

    1,400 miles of secret tunnels

  6. If they're secret, how do you know about them?
     
  7. Ration packs must be pretty decent too.
     
  8. I was present when a former colleague once received a major b***ocking from the head of Swiss security services for putting something in a paper he'd written re some of these secret tunnels, Thunderbirds-style airbases, etc. "What," said colleague, "the paper was cleared by your security guys."
    "I know," replied the yodeller, "but there were some things in there that were so secret we couldn't tell you to delete them, because then you would have known they were secret!"

    "He who has a secret to tell, better to keep it secret." I forget which ancient Greek writer or philosopher that came from, but it fits.
     
  9. As one of the largest manufacturers of false teeth in the world.

    The reaction from Liechtenstein was predictable.

    "Chew on it. If you can."
     
  10. And a far superior selection of posters.

    Bugger!

    Personally I think that if blame has to be apportioned then it should go to the idiot who gave the officer a map. :threaten:
     
  14. Mastermind Syndrome, they asked him where they were going and all he could come up with was 'Pass'.

    He rest as they say is history.
