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. Guys,

    I've just been given this. What is it and what was it's use? It looks like some sort of ground spike.

    All help much appreciated.

  2. Im guessing part of a ground spike antenna for clansman
  3. Worst late christmas present ever.
  4. Looks like it's got a cruciform cross-section, so not a Clansman GSA.
  5. Would it be an earthing spike for a generator? It's been a long time since I handled combat power tools.
  6. Pretty sure not clansman but could be an earth spike I guess????
  7. Is there anything on it to which a cable can be attached securely? I'd hate to think that we're looking at a fancy tent peg.
  8. The top bit (if we say this is a "sword" then the "handle") is brass and screws off.
  9. If it was a vital part of an antenna system wouldn't it have an NSN?
