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. Whilst mucking through my vinyl LP collection, I stumbled upon this jewel. Circa 1958, it is a collection of martial music from your beloved Black Watch-Royal Highland Regiment.


    Not sure of its origins, but I believe I inherited it from a family friend who was stationed in the UK with the CIA, FBI, US Army, etc....

    Anyhoo, I'll give it a listen, clean it up, and tranfer it to CD. If any of you lot would be interested in having a free copy, perhaps we can figure out something.

  2. OK...I've given it a go and cleaned it up the best I could. Doesn't sound too bad, considering the recording is almost 50 years skips, and a few pops and crackles I couldn't eliminate, but listenable and interesting.
