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:


    I thought that large scale Fijian recruiting started in 61/62?
  2. It was suspended shortly afterwards when there was a dnager of robbing the nation of its men and overwhelmingly diluting the ethos of the Army. It was restarted as the article describes. I would not be surprised if one or two got in between times but there have been two concerted recruiting drives, a generation apart.
  3. I wonder if Sgt Labalaba Takavesi both of Mirbat fame, were from that 61/62 intake? Very brave men.
