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:

  2. Yay! This means Alex Salmond will be packing his bags soon and moving to Cuba!
     
  3. Whenever I see an aerial photo of Faslane, I can't resist chuckling over this incident:

    Allegedly, CAPIC CLYDE's wife drew back the curtains at breakfast and remarked, "There's a submarine in our garden, dear" whereupon her husband retorted, "Don't be silly, woman!" (or words to that effect).

  4. 'Picture: Petty Officer (Photographer) Donny Osmond'. so when did he give up his singing career?

    Thanks.
     
  6. Will there be hot water?

  9. Don't be silly !

  10. Why, when it happened at Greenock?
     
  11. Thanks Dunservin. My Father-in-law tells this story pretty much verbatim so I hope there's some truth in it. I was hoping to find the article as a present for him.
