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. Does anyone know if there is any truth in that people over a certain height are entitled to two rat packs a day? I heard about this but was not sure if it was a joke.
     
  2. i heard about this once i think you have to be over 2m tall but dont quote me
     
  3. Were you told this on Wednesday 1st April?
     
  4. Knew a guy in HMS Sultan who was 6' 10". Don't know about rat packs, but he got two beds.

    (Would you believe he wanted to serve in subs?)
     
  5. Did he eat both of them?

    he did, but after he ate the pillows he felt a little down in the mouth.
     
  7. Yeah, but they were six inchers. Not foot-longs. That would be silly.
     
  8. No - no you don't. Why would you need them?
     
  9. It's so he can eat one and sell the other one on eBay.
     
  10. It's not true, however those over a certain weight are entitled.
