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. ..I was wondering. How many soldiers and officers does the modern day British army have?
     
  2. ... I was also wondering - Who had the Army Number '1', and when was it issued?
     
  3. www.google.co.uk :roll:
     
  4. I think there are 32427.6 blokes in the army.One is a mincer and the other was amputated below the eyebrows in a horrific windmill related accident in Den Helder.
     
  5. About half enough.

    Aren't officers soldiers?
     
  7. No, Officers is Officers. Soldiers is scum of the earth.
     
  8. VB how very right you are old man.
     
  9. How dare you class an ORIFICE as a soldier, 2lt and Lt are there for us to laugh at and Colonels and above for us to complain about how crap they are at ironing their kit. :D
     
  10. Your going to last long :roll:

    Don't they have a Man to do that sort of thing for them?
     
  12. You must be one of them damn Soldiers, an Officer would have said "you're" not "your".

    We need Soldiers, who else have we got to drive the Green Goddess vehicles ?
     
  13. And most folk with a standard education would have written 'are' rather than 'is'.

    People in glass houses and all that.....
     
  14. People in glasshouses should always pull the curtains before getting ready for bed.
