Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. In other news, a postman was recently found to be delivering post.

  3. This MOD feed is more of a waste of space than Tropper.
     
  4. oooooooooo, Doris matlow fires a gun. Not really worthy of all that news was it.
     
  5. As a civvy, I've found myself carrying ammo to sangars whilst the site was under attack in Helmand, I've also helped septics move artillery shells to the guns whilst they were carrying out a fire mission in Lowgar. Do I get a mention?

    I also held an FMT600 as a civvy in a war-zone.

    I've found that I've had more "Interesting times" out of uniform than I did when I wore green.
     
  6. I wish he'd ******* deliver mine.

    quite right he should too, our jolly jack tars used to be happy fighting an action on land servicing the great guns before going back to his ship.

    with no navy now I suspect more of the same.
     
  10. Are we sure it was'nt an ND?

    Interesting captiosn for the photos though as they indicate she is pointing her rifle at a compound... Is the compound airborne?

    Well done to her though, slightly out of her comfort zone i imagine :)
     
  13. I'd do her.

    Christ how bad a cook was she they booted her of the ship and sent her to Afghanistan?

    That's some write up they've gave her lets hope she dosen't get injured she'll be the new Princess Di

    I would have been more impressed if you'd wrote:

    On hearing the sound of the gun AB Telford broke the weapon down into a number of pieces
    AB Telford ran, swung across a ravine before putting the weapon back together and firing a number of rounds
    AB Telford then stripped the weapon ran swung back across the ravine and raised a flag

    A text was sent to the last two ships in the fleet of the result
