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. In full
  2. Bloody hell these journos are slow!
    that happened yonks ago!
    what will the next headline be? "MAFEKING RELIEVED"?
    well done tho Tatts
  3. Truly amazing and awe inspiring stuff - the gods were certainly smiling on Mne Farr that day! My sincere admiration to CSgt Tatton - he'll no doubt be a Corps legend for many years to come.
  4. Good man.
  5. I take it that the days of junior subalterns commanding their Bns two minutes after going over the top, having gone, that there is not, in fact a Lt Col acting Brig, as Comd 3 Cdo Bde?
  6. I suppose a Paratrooper would have picked the truck up and lobbed it at the Taleban? :D

    I would hope C/Sgt Tatton hasn't bought his own beer for a while
  7. Nope MDN a para would have bitten the truck in two freeing his mate and THEN lobbed the truck at the teleban
  8. Twice round my beautiful body that can lift a two-tonne truck...GO!
  9. Well done CSgt Tatton. Hat doffed to you.

  10. Good grief he is 38 and gets extra time for his PFT!
  11. Good old Royal! :D That's why they have short-sleeve order all year -to show off the Guns! :wink:

    Well done Csgt Tatton
  12. He's from Plymouth, they're used to lifting motors there...
  13. Exellent work Colour, now to sort out the chavs on Union Street.
  14. :D He's a bootneck PTI, in his own mind he is already a legend :D

    Hoofing effort though
  15. BZ CSgt Tatton. A credit to the Corps. (Watch you don't put your back out doing stuff like that!)

    A PCSO would have waited for engineers with a crane and divers.
