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. A short video i came across on youtube which in my opinion hits all the right chords in the "food for thought Dept".

    Brilliant effort.

    Now watch this ...... YouTube - THE AVERAGE BRITISH SOLDIER
     
  2. Pathetic!

    Foxholes? Latrines? Canteens?


    Anybody got space in their bucket, I've got carrots I need to get rid of.
     
  3. It would be rather better if it had Rule Britannia or Land of Hope and Glory as the background instead of that foreign crap dubbed over it.
     
  4. The Snow Patrol one is better, once you get past the sugary text at the beginning and end.

    Open Your Eyes
     
  5. The average British soldier deserves more than having some phots stuck between slides of an American dit, in which global replace "American" with "British" has been selected...
     
  6. Bit dusty in here.
     
  7. In my day, which was a very long time ago. there were TWO KNOWN FACTS.

    First Fact: if you locked a British Infantryman in a padded square room that had no windows, no doors and no furniture in it; you then put into the room the latest and most expensive bit of equipment ever made; one of three things would happen.

    ONE: He would lose the bit of equipment.
    TWO: He would hurt himself with the bit of equipment, or
    THREE: He would break the bit of equipment.

    Second fact The British Infantry man is the best soldier in the world! Ask Wellington or Slim.

  8. It's all sidewalks and elevators to me.
     
  9. Oi! What did I ever do to you?

    Besides, I gave up consorting with buckets when I got married.
