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. TEAM Forces Children's Trust do battle in the UK's toughest Adventure Races.

    Running, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking by day and night, come rain or shine. (Probably rain.)

    TEAM Forces Children's Trust has been formed to compete in some of the UK's most challenging adventure races to raise awareness and money for the Forces Children's Trust. Please take just a few seconds to help them raise £2500.

    The Forces Children’s Trust is a charity devoted to helping dependent children that have lost a parent whilst serving with the Armed Forces.

    A good introduction to the work of the Trust is this video taken from the Sky ONE special, "Noel's Christmas Presents" (http://www.forceschildrenstrust.org/FCT-Videos/) on our web site.

    The team has a fantastic adventure racing pedigree, with it's members having competed in numerous events including the Land Rover G4 challenge, Highland Cross, Western Isles Challenge and the 2008 Original Mountain Marathon where their camera work was extensively used by the BBC when floods affected the area!

    We Need you!

    The Drambuie Pursuit is a very high profile multi-sport race and so would be perfect to raise awareness of the Trust, and there is a significant bonus.

    This year in X-Factor style, entry is by public vote! We've made our "audition video" and all we need now is votes. The team with the most votes automatically gets £2500 for their charity.

    All we need is a few seconds of your time:

    1. Visit the Drambuie Pursuit web site: http://j.mp/arrse (age verification required.)
    2. Click the Red Vote for Us button.
    3. Pass this request on to your friends and contacts and ask them to do the same.

    Step 3 is critical as we need a large number of votes to be sure to top the voting league table. If you get 5 friends to vote for us, and they get five friends and so on, in just 5 steps we get 3126 votes!

    So please consider taking a few seconds to vote and ask your friends to vote for us, so helping the Forces Children's Trust continue their work.

    Many thanks,

    Jeremy, Tim, The Scary One.

    TEAM Forces Children's Trust.
