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. G'day all, good to see that ARRSE Command HQ has saw fit to create a section for Australia.

    Just by way of an intro - I left Ireland in the early 1960's and headed for The Land Down Under and haven't looked back since.

    I am proud of my Irish heritage as are all Australians and sure if it wasn't for the Irish you wouldn't have the great nation that you have to day. :cheers:
     
  2. i never knew that all Austrailians are Irish ;)
     
  3. I wonder if the black fellas know? :? :p
     
  4. Both have fecked up accents anyways so seems fitting!!!!
     
  5. I heard somewhere that around 70% of the 20 million Australians have some form of irish descent. Im sure some would say that explains a lot :p Aboriginals only make up around 2% of the population.
     
  6. And, there are quite a number of Aboriginals with Irish names. :)
     
  7. Dont believe you, Mick Dundee is about as Australian as a name gets ! :D
     
  8. I'd be proud mate. I mean all Septics are Irish too, at least on 17 March......
     
  9. BTW the famine's over you can go home now :D :D or is that just for the Glesga Paddies? :)
