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. Apologies for such intellectualism in the Infantry thread, but this story from the Scotsman is about a new poem, aimed at drawing attention to ALL regiments threatened with disbandment or merger. http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/politics.cfm?id=1421922004

    Why TF is that word night*watchmen one of arrse's forbidden words? Have I missed out in my education? :? :? :?
  3. nigh t*wat chmen
  4. da*mn, PT*P I was getting quite intrigued

    if the programme is so da*mned cle*ver why can't it insert the asterisk rather than removing the whole wo*rd!

    oh well. I see it also censors ****

    and ****
