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:

    Still at a lower rate than the general public, pretty remarkable considering how much more stress soldiers are under compared to civilians.

    It would be interesting to see the statistics of what arm the suicide rates are from, ie front line infantry, stores, medics etc etc.
    Not for morbid reasons, but to see if there is a trend and if it is due to any particular situation.

    Maybe the BBC could enlist a reporter to discover the "facts" behind this story.
