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'm Outraged........... Honestly Goverments are all shite.
     
  2. No surprizes there! My Great Grandad was killed at Ypres in the first one. Walzing accross the bog full of German machine guns in order to distract Jerries attention from the latest French mutinies. He was buried on the battle field (Borry farm) but his body was never found after the armistice.

    We got the usual post card signed with the kings own rubber stamp.
    When his pay book turned up there were some deductions from the sum paid to his widow.

    These were for the blanket and the kit he was buried in!

    How times have changed!
