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. Don't think I've seen this posted yet:

    Troops leisure concessions call

    Not much, but it's nice to see anyway.
     
  2. Contact details for the council to get them to support the idea.

    email: Ken Sawyers (Chief Executive) chief.execs@neath-porttalbot.gov.uk

  3. Not much?

    Sweat saves blood.

    A damned sight more than you'll get from any of the other devious, unscrupulous local councils or the central government.

    Bloody well done Councillor Taylor and Port Talbot.

    I anticipate that Councillor Taylor will suffer criticism for the costs and his initiative will be quietly reversed within a year or two.

    Please note whichever clueless parasite of a Minister it was who proposed charging soldiers for the use of gymnasia.

    His career depends on imposing such charges.
     
  4. Well done councillor Taylor and take note other councils.

    How about extending the gesture to serving members of the TA too...after all, one army and all that!
