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. After witnessing another pi@@-poor turn-out from the locals, I was going to have a major rant, however my mind went back to the 70's, where I first heard a song about a soldier in NI. It says it all really. Iraq, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Bosnia. Falklands and NI. As Led Zepp once sang 'The song remains the same'. We will remember them.
    I will try and post a link to the song by Harvey Andrews.

  2. You old fart stolie, remember when there were a million Harvey wanna bes singing it in Sqn Bars after Fri Phys sessions

    In a station in a city the lonely soldier stood etc clever words

    Went to RemParade yesterday met an ex RE with more medals than you could shake a stick at and to think I used to kick his arse cos he was useless, made a decision to join 22 not Tidders and got there a few yrs later- good drills for him but rasied a wry smile yesterday as we downed Malt by the shed load in a RBL that looked like it had been built by Dog Sqn
     
  3. great song, been favourite of mine for years.

    good link.
     
  4. The son of the gentleman that the song is about was a RE.

    We went through Chep & Gib at the same time
