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. 'A Long Long War; Voices of the British Army in Northern Ireland, 1969-98' is now available at Waterstones and Borders etc. It is also available on-line at Helion, Amazon, Play.com etc.

    It is very pro-squaddie and features 20-30 Gunners' stories.

    The second book - also a squaddies eyeview of the troubles is underway and I need more contributions so that the soldier's story of the forgotten war continues to be told.
    Part One: Belfast (separate chapters on Murph/Turf/Andy's Town/ Ardoyne/ Falls etc
    Part Two: Londonderry (separate chapters on Bogside/Creggan/Fountains, Gob etc
    Part Three: Rural Ulster (separate chapters on XMG, Belleek, Lisnaskea, Omagh etc)
    Part Four: Mainland and European attacks
    Part Five: Loved ones speak out.

    The next 3 events are as follows:

    Edinburgh: Blackwells bookshop : June 27
    Brecon RRW museum: July 12
    Leeds: Waterstones: August 7
