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. 'Kin hell, is that all we have left to send? And we even have to use the same crew on two different ships (boats?). It seems it's been a while since we 'ruled the waves'.
     
  3. The crew roulement thing is done to maintain a force of four MCMVs out in the Gulf. To deploy them normally and bring them back in the traditional way would not be feasible - so they crew swop.

  4. Once upon a time there was Force H...??? in Gib. Now we have a minesweeper... times change...
     
  5. "Minehunter finds mine" isn't a story.

    "Minehunter HITS mine" would get my vote.
