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. It doesn't boat well for the pirates now!
     
  2. In a similar vein to the story where the drunk chavs attacked the two cage fighters, brilliant! :)
     
  3. It must be the first time in along while someone surrendered to the froggies. I'm supprised they did not surrender!

    stilts
     
  4. Ah Jesus I thought those French surrender jokes were done and dusted in 2003...I just can't laugh at them anymore (if I ever did anyway) since those 10 French paras were killed :(

    I know it's supposed to be a joke but I think we can find more fertile areas of humour to mine.

  5. Should've gunned 'em into the water :)
     
  6. Thats prize coming from us :wink:
     
  7. Had it been the RN, The pirates would have made off with a fat bird and a number of IPOds and sold the ship on EBay!
     
  8. Nah, there's generations of mileage in it yet.
     
  9. Well at least the Pirates found out it was harmless first.
     
  10. Agree'd :wink:

    That'll teach them not to wear night vison :oops:
     
  11. Easy mistake to make!

    Thinking the French are harmless!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  12. "A group of Somali pirates has been captured after attacking a French navy ship by mistake, apparently thinking it was a harmless cargo vessel. "

    Anyone heard of Q-ships? Might be an idea.
     
  13. If it had been a Greenpeace vessel the French would have sunk it.
     
  14. It said they dumped their weapons over the side. The French or the pirates........?
