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. I’m in much need of an SJAR moment, so I’ve bravely volunteered to plan this years AT, we have only just come back from an awesome weeks Skiing in Les Contamines. We are based in Wales so don’t particularly want to do AT here. I was just wondering if you guys had any recommendations? Much appreciated!
     
  2. Rothiemurchas lodge in the Cairngorms, pretty good in the summer. All depends if your AT budget is being cut i suppose!
     
  3. Close by is the lodge at Kinguisse. Right next to Aviemore and on the doorstep of the Cairngorms. Slightly further South, Carlisle Castle will be able to put you up. There's a Cadet HQ there with excellent facilities ... and right near the town centre.
     
  4. PM sent.

    Tra la la (just to make it 10 characters).
     
  5. I've sent a PM about surfing at Scarborough, but then again, what about gliding at Upavon?
