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. Gosh. Another 'man does his job' headline from the Crab spin-machine. Move along.....

    Edited to add: Thinks; must be another opportunity to commission another cracking oil painting?
  3. Excellent! I look forward to all the beach ball rescue stories next summer.
  4. Jolly well done.

    I thought we didn't have any AT to spare.
  5. Well done that man.

    Good decision to use C-130 and not a VC10/ Tristar. They're far too uncomfortable.

  7. Insiders have reported the death had nothing to do with Crimean-Congo Viral Haemorrhagic Fever (CCVHF), it was because he choked on a frozen piece of sausage roll during the flight.

    No different to any of the 'man does his job' headlines pushed out by the pongos on a daily basis, though they do keep quiet about not being able to man the hospital in Bastion without the RAF and RN.

    However, the Air Transport Isolation Team is highly specialised, and its work is outside the capability of the NHS. The RAF transports patients who are critically ill on a daily basis - most of them soldiers - but one who is both critically ill and suffering from a rare, highly infectious condition requiring the Patient Isolator (unique to the RAF) is unusual.
  9. What happened to you Modern crabtastics you used to be cool.

    Edited to add. meh maybe not
  10. Is that an RAF Medic with a bad bedside manner?
