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.  
  2. So the entire fire power of 307 (South Nottinghamshire Hussars Yeomanry Royal Horse Artillery) Battery Royal Artillery (Volunteers) is one gun then.

    If anyone is interested the guys and gals from 38 Signal Regiment will be there as well.
     

  3. From the article:

     
  4. Poorly fitted headress - check
    Bulging waistlines - check
    Odd looking individuals struggling with physical tasks - check

    DS answer: No, theyre Staybrite.
     
  12. What is the point of the cart cases? They're dented and not even clean.
     
  13. Soldier on left next to gun appears to be a few cartidge cases short of a magazine. I know it is Nottinghamshire and all but it is an indication that in-breeding is not a good idea.
