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. Does anyone know of any good websites with Squadron histores? I'm after any info on 42 Field Squadron. A colleague has asked for help researching for an essay & presentation. Thanks for any advice.
