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. Southampton, Oldham and Hartlepool. Today they will be wearing a kit with a poppy on them. They are going to auction the shirts off for the Poppy Fund.

    I salute you.
  2. Good lads!

    Nice to see civvies showing some respect and support.

    It's about time that 11/11 was recognised outside of the forces

    I have always thought professional football and supporters a poor substitute for having a life. However ....

    This one has rocked me backwards - respect for a fine thought. That will also do a lot for the cause. Thank you.

    In view of some later posts, I think I may well have to review some of my other prejudices as well :oops:

    11/11 sort of brings out the best in surprising places, doesn't it!
  9. If you saw the minutes silence at the City v Newcastle team, the whole of the Newcastle end held their scarves aloft for the whole of the silence period. You might have a shite team, but respect to your fans.
  10. Glasgow Rangers are wearing poppies on their shirts as well.
    Now, if we can just learn to actually play football...
