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. Found this on a rather interesting Belfast newspaper website when looking through photos of the troubles.

    Belfast Telegraph Photosales Troubles 1970 - 3680

    A 3 year old child as mascot...shipped over to Northern Ireland in 1970!

    Is this the most bizarre mascot of all times?
     
  2. Not a mascot, just one of the Highland Div's 'poisoned dwarfs' brought out of storage after the Cameronians disbanded!

    Actually that was my first tour, with that wonderful and very old, esteemed Regiment, The First of Foot.

    I vaguely remenber seeing that picture and iirc then the lad was squaddy daft and loved being a soldier. Now he was perfectly safe as our Regiment was not full of pervs, like the ones who will no doubt leave their less than funny remarks.

    It was also the time when life was easier and most stuff coming our way from Paddy was bricks or the odd Petrol bomb.
