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. As I will be the same age as Falklands war this year, the wife has decided to throw an 80's themed party. Not wanting to do the usual shell suit thing, or turn up looking like Miami Vice or Adam Ant, what was the must wear rig for going on the piss in 1982?
     
  2. A Black plastic Bin Liner with holes for your head and arms.
     
  3. What I'm still wearing now......jeans, DB's, check shirt, flying jacket......fashion never goes out of style!

  5. For me it was a semi sort of Spandau Ballet look, brushed jeans, baggy at the top with pointy boots and a shirt with small buttoned down collar. Was very trendy then but fills me with horror now.

  15. As I was only fucking six at the time, my rig for pissing myself (not often as I was now wearing big boy pants, although the occasional accident did happen), tended to be a childs size Action Man outfit, complete with maroon beret and Action Man badge (I was only attached you see).
