Porton Down Holiday Camp

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. Does anyone know anything about the injuries (possible as a result of contact with a blister agent) sustained to a group of Leeds University cadets on summer camp in the early 80s ?

    If so did they later in life come down with unexpected cancers?
  2. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk offffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.

    I was one of them, it's turned out that the injury didn't happen because of contact with a blister agent it was because of contact with an Amesbury slapper.

    I don't class herpes as an injury though.

  4. I know, but I've signed the Official Secrets Act, so I can't tell you. Sorry.

    Oh, and what Dingerr said.

  5. Ignore this bunch of yes-men. I have all the info and for the right price (paid up front) I'll tell you a tale worthy of a front page news article.

  6. It wasn't blister agent. It was a special weapon that we pulled off a crashed UFO. I can't say any more though at the moment, as if I make my messages too long the Black Helicopters track me down.
