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. I saw a poll today that suggested 68% of firemen retire early due to "ill health".

    The figures for the Police were 49%, local government 38%, teachers 25% and civil serpents 22%.

    I can accept the first two categories are jobs with an element of danger, but 38% in local government!!???!

    Just how fcuking dangerous is it to be a dustman these days?

    Figures for the Armed Forces? 6%

    Next time a Fireman's Strike comes round, shall we only send a third of the folk required and tell Two Jags the rest are off sick.
  2. Saw it in the Sunday Times.

    It is awfully hot in the fire service though isn't it.

    68% Pah :x
