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:

  2. The ones we were required to cart about on the AEW Shack worked like that. And they looked as if they were old enough to have been designed in time for WW2. Like most of the rest of the kit.
