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. Sorry to bother, but bijou discussion in the office (many retired officers) what were the main meals in the above? Got chicken sublime, babies heads, and that indeterminable mince - but what were the remainder? Apparently there were only four choices, I seem to remember 8 or was that pooches appeared?
  2. Was there chicken curry and rice?

  11. I wonder if there will ever be a time when people on this site will decide that they have completely exhausted all the possibilities for discussion on the subject of compo?

  15. Yeah. I definitely do. Especially the GP ration packs - those ******* would be nice for a wee hike in the various mountains that litter the ground not far from me.
