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. OK. Chances are the old boy is on his last legs, but the big question is when? Entry to this pool is a fiver. If you manage to get the six hour time slot in which the Vatican officially announces the death of JP2, I guarantee to send you five pounds via Paypal. I'm bagging 0600-1159hrs on 24 February.

    Winner takes all.

  2. You really are a Welshman, you bastard. If my wife wasn't a catholic and my father a Pole, I'd bag 26th Feb, 0600 -1200. Pay you on Ex Veritable.
  3. Wife says she'll go to Hell for marrying a Protestant b@stard anyway so she'll take 0001 - 0600 27th June.
  4. ok 31st February 2500hrs :lol:

    7th March at 0700, cant be doing with paypal so pay Sgt Slingsby if it happens.

    I hope it does, Im due a payout from the local pub in the dead meat draw it its before June :wink:
  5. Been dead ten years - it's only a cardboard replica on the balcony. Can I win with a retrospective swag?
  6. Latest Medical Report:

  13. It'll be like Brezhnev - they'll keep him "alive" on machines and the world's supply of drugs for years yet while they bitch about who gets the job. What's the betting they've got a sweepstake on in the Vatican?
  14. Who else is in the frame??

    And can I have another go if I want?

  15. Another go requires you to pledge another fiver.

    There is a full on Dead Pool thread somewhere: I'll resurrect it.
