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. Can anyone explain why the American flag is worn the wrong way round on the right arms of service pers?

    (My point being that flags are supposed to be read from L to R)
     
  2. I think it's something to do with that's the way it would look if the flag was flying, and travelling forwards...
     
  3. I did get the honest answer - a fcuk up on the initial order of the flag badges and they have made up reasons ever since.
