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. Kenya's top soldier, General Jeremiah Karanga, has been replaced in what looks like a British style ceremony. I assume we still do this sort of thing.

    Link here Daily Nation: - News |Kenya

    The interview gives the impression that he is practical, happy to be leaving, and not pompous and arrogant. How unusual for one of his grade. Nice looking Land Rover too.

    I remember someone being tied to the top of a 25 pdr gun and being pulled out. He was quite comfortable, because they fitted a coffin mounting bord to it first.

  2. We said TA-TA to our SSM, on promotion to RSM by securing his Office chair to the top of

    a 439 and driving him round Kingsley Bks and out onto the main road, made the Erics stare,

    I can tell you.
  3. I wish I had tied my last RSM to the back of a Rover and drove him down the M6! good leaving present
