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. jo whiley telling story of household cav soldier (I think) injured in Afghanistan.

    Unusual for the BBC
     
  2. They are also running a "Broken covenant" story on the lunch apparently

    At least its better than drugged up popsters and celeb gimpery
     
  3. it was for Martyn Compton of the household cavalry, severely injured but beating all expectations. the song had the words, "that that dont kill me, can only make me stronger" He is the stongest person i have ever met and just seems to get stronger.
     
  4. Bless him - all the best to him. I hope he does OK in the system that's supposed to look after him.[hr]Stonkernote: Just one li'l thing "What doesn't kill us makes us stronger" comes from Friedrich Nietzche, of "God is Dead" fame. Aside from dying completely insane (some would say as a result of his insights into the meaning of eternity . . .) he was Adolf Hitler's philosopher of choice. (Although, the failed housepainter was very careful to pick only the bits of Nietzche's work that suited him).
