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. After Pitswampers post in the Emp. Mong thread:

    "Aye, along with "Book him Dano, murder one." and "Let's be careful out there."

    And my own fond memory of Dixon of Dock Green uttering the immortal words "If you are out tonight, on your bike, wear white" and of course his signature:

    "Evening all".

    Lets have all your favourite (or most hated) police / gangster related TV / film lines.

    You doity rats.
  2. Jimmy Cagney, White Heat - "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!"
  3. I fucking love your sig block.

  7. "Good moaning" - Allo Allo. Still use it, gets a bit lost on todays generation. Fuck 'em I say!
  8. Good night Vienna.
  9. "Who loves ya baby?" - Theo Kojack

    "Just one more thing..." Columbo

    "We've got him bang to rights" - Jack Frost

    "I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" - Harry Callaghan
  10. Gene Hunt-Legend.

    "Eee, I thinks we should take this drunken cunt to the station and do him for drunk and incapable." Copper in Whitehaven, Cumbria as he stood over Pitswampers inebriated body.
  11. Seen and edited.
  12. Get yer strides on, you're nicked (usually growled by Jack Regan on a dawn raid to a scrote in bed with his dolly bird)

    One of my lance jacks looks a bit like Vinnie Jones, and since that ad's been out I've used every opportunity to sneak in a piss-take. Every brief where the word "volunteer" is brought up, it's all eyes on him, swiftly followed by the words, "who ain't breathing". Trouble is, it's kinda caught on, so he can barely go anywhere now without having to walk past one or two guys pressing down thin air, pulsing in chorus to "ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive"

    Think he was relieved to get out to Canada for six months in the end.
