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. What's the best/worst/dumbest/funniest surname you've ever come across in the Army? I met a guy who's surname was Napoleon!
  2. It wasnt in the army but.....Ramsbottom
  3. A Doctor called De'Ath

    We had a bloke called Stanley Still (long since out).

    Nearly every parade when the BSM would call "STAN' STILL THE FRONT RANK!", there would be the quick reply of "I'm in the rear rank sir!!!!"
  13. Have a guy in CUOTC called Shave. And on annual camp a few years ago we were using acting rank (don't know why, we haven't done it since), so this guy was Private Shave :D Well it made me chuckle anway.
  14. We had a captain called Courage and there was the old one SGT sergeant.
  15. I've met Dvr Carr, Cpl Major (who went on to be Sgt Major, SSgt Major and Sgt Maj Major), the Adjt from 2 PARA at Hollywood was called Richard Head. A bloke called Shufflebottom and a Jock of Portugese descent whose middle name was Jesus. Oh and another Jock called Stirling who came from Stirling which caused all sorts of confusion when he got knicked by the German Police in Paderborn.
