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. Can anybody help me? I am trying to finf the pantone colour for Rifles green.

  2. Try RHQ Winchester Office: 01962 828 532 or ATN 94271 5132

    Don't mention pink cords...
  3. Just in case it makes a difference, and being an incorrigible pedant, it's Rifle Green.

    It has been known by certain different names over the years and Rifle Green is popular again. It was also known as Brunswick Green but as Brunswick made Rifles for the Light Div it was also known as Rifle Green.
    Being from a regiment with colours we used to wind up our trg pln commander by answering any colour name apart from the one he wanted to hear. Yes he was RGJ!
    Southern Railway used a very similar shade known as Malcanite green. It doesnt matter as it fades with washing!
  7. Green = Pantone 553 C (#336633)
    Black = Black C (#000000)
    Red = Pantone 485 C (#FF0000)
    Bugle should be either Pantone 877C Metallic or 30% Black

    Hope this helps.

    ( but I've written it down, anyway...)
  10. Glad to be of service, my tube & nail friend! =-D
