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. was a rather extraordinary chap. Just had a look at the Fry-beleagured movie 'Wilde'. Rather good. But if Wilde was gay how is it that he shagged his mrs senseless?

    I'm desperate too know. And a bit drunk too.
  2. Not that I am poking fun at a very British institution, perhaps a more fogey-toity one than Mr. Bean. I have many gay friends...
  3. Erm IIRC his place of birth and his mothers political views were not distinctly British.
  4. You're certainly right there, Flick. She was a very radical Irish Nationalist who used the pen-name "Speranza" (which is Italian for "hope").

  5. I think that is where his feel for language sprang from Bugsy. Definitely a touch of the Blarney Stone. A much maligned man in my opinion.
