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. feck that.............. they are just TASTY.

  5. A few years ago the T family visited the National amy museum.Thet were doing cooking through the ages outside the entrance,but because of health and safety couldn't serve what they had cooked.
    I saw the ration packs and as we were the only ones there they let eldest t have pick of the box,quick whisper in the ear and in his mitt he had a tin of oatmeal blocks.pure pleasure and such memories flooded back.
    Often look at e bay but refuse to buy what is probably stolen rations.
    Mouth watering even now
     
  6. Oatmeal block with a chunk of cheese possessed and a scraping of jam!
     
  7. I remember aged 15 eating cold bacon burger straight from the tin in my (probably very overt) OP in wales and thinking I was nails.
