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. truly astonishing.
  2. Next they'll be charging for stealing the rounds embedded in each other's bodies after a blue-on-blue.
  3. We've had the same sort of thing happen in our "you signed for it" world, so I can't say that I'm all that surprised.
  4. Why didn't he : A) have one bucksheesh B) bribe a storeman C) steal one ?

    No initative.
  5. Maybe he was busy rolling around in his settlement cash....

    Probably controversial but I'm an ill-educated ****

    Do the Spams get a good payout if they get mullered? We've all heard the story of the U.S. burglar who sued his victim cos he fell and landed on one of the house-owners knives.

  8. What a QM he must have found Back in the USA.
    I was under the immpression that in UK forces, equipment lost on active service was written off, post Zulu wars battle of Isandawal.
  9. It happened to a mate of mine in 1991.

    Havent seen him since 1996, but if I remember correctly his packet came under attack, his vehicle commander was killed and he got covered in gore. His webbing was burnt as a biological hazard. Got back to BAOR and the SQMS tried billing him for the missing webbing. I seem to recall it was the same action where the 2 REME were also killed trying to defend them (LCpl, SSgt).

    He was never right in the head after that, and PVR'd shortly after.
  10. According to the story:
  11. How much? How much?
  12. A crate of lager normally works well, few bottles of port if he fancies some class.
