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 More. Be More. - British Army Website

    Anyone got a scooby what this is all about?? Seen the TV advert thought id look online for shits and gigs. One thing for certian is its not the countdown to that big "summer sporting thingy that the TA's is playing in" or is it..... :)

    Anyways anyone in the know??

  2. I, for one, haven't got a clue so will have to wait 8 days, 3 hours and 52 minutes....

  3. Lets just hope the weather is not inclement next Thursday.
  4. I suspect that it is no more exciting than the launch of some kind of multimedia recruiting campaign. Expect the usual shots to be wheeled out of STABs cammed up in the field, roaring through the countryside in various vehicles, drinking in the bar etc. Oh and of AT. HAHAHAHAHA. Sorry.

    I did have to laugh when it said 'will say exactly what the TA is all about'. They have obviously been reading the Telegraph thread then!

    And have any STABs been issued PCS yet? I had to stifle another giggle when the other half directed my attention to the telly the other night showing various alleged part timers on screen in the new rig. I thought we were just behind the cadets in the queue and due to get it at some point around 2020.
  5. is this the beginning of a campaign to increase recruitment by highlighting the joys of manlove thursdays?
