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. Article from this month's Soldier magazine.


    In summary it lists (and ranks)the greatest achievements of Army personnel in sporting fields.

    List goes like this:-

    1. Kelly Holmes - Double Gold
    2. Josh Lewsey - Rugby World Cup
    3. Alistair Heathcote - Olympic Rowing Silver
    4. Dean Ward & Sean Olsen - Olympic Bobsleigh Silver
    5. Chris Bessey - Commonwealth Boxing Gold
    6. Maik Taylor - Puffballer
    7. Jackie Gunn - Bobsleigh World Silver
    8. Kelly Morgan - Lots of Stuff
    9. Apolosi Satala - Commonwealth Rugby 7's Bronze
    10. Mike Dixon - Biathlon sheer endurance and best in Britain for decades

    Whilst it's a good read, I couldn't help thinking that there might be a few more noteworthy performances out there somewhere. What about Akabusi for example. Any gems that you can throw to the surface?
  2. FA Cup won by the Royal Engineers in 1875 :D
