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. Do you sing when you march?

    Always got asked that when they knew I was in.
  2. Are the weapons you carry real?

    Asked by the plebes in havant.
  3. Do you know .... he/she is in the Army.
  4. About 1974ish. The whole battalion in CEFO and with our personal weapons debussing out of the back of four tonners at Victoria station on our way to Otterburn or somewhere and some woman running up to me shrieking "oh my god what's going on, why are you all here" to which I replied "s'all right love, we're just catching a train, same as you". :)

  5. "Can your Girlfriend come and visit you in Iraq"
  6. "Have you ever killed anyone?" Not in my job, closest I'll get is by food poisoning.

    "How long are you back from Iraq for?" I don't actually live there, you ******* loon.
  7. Can I suck your cock big boy.

    To which you presumably replied: "No, it's a Pick Helve, you daft cow"... ?

  9. Ah, the old 'have you killed someone' question.

    Yeah, got that lots too. I usually answered with, 'Maybe, but if you stand still I'll see what I can do'...

    "Do you get paid in the T.A.?" (asked this by other civvies like me obviously)

    No, I take shit from over promoted ***** for the sheer fun of it.

    Still, at least its casual labour and a hobby ;)
  11. Member of Parliament out to see his "constituents" on a fact finding trip to Crossmaglen police station (this is a few years back, mind);

    "Do you chaps get out to the local pubs often ?"
  12. .
    On your first day of any leave ... "So when are you going back?".
  13. Usually when I had just got home for leave:

    Them - 'Hey mate you on leave now?'

    Me - 'yes'

    Them - 'When you going back'

    Me - '**** off Ive just got home and your reminding me of when I need to go back'
