The Black Watch

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. The boys from The Black Watch have started their deployment on Op Herrick. I'd just like to wish the guy's a safe tour.

    Those of us who have served will follow your actions with pride, do not think because you are many miles away that no one cares, that could not be further from the truth.

    Cry not Mother I’ll be fine
    I’m marching oot wi mates o’ mine
    The Taliban they hold no dread
    For men wi hackles o’bright red

    There’s Foreign lands and desert soil
    And In the heat of day we’l toil
    We worked so hard to hone our skill’s
    And soon I’m sure we’l hae oor fill

    Contact’s come and contact’s go
    But in your heart I’m sure you’ll know
    Your son has trained to do his part
    And will now go and test his art

    Helmund waits to test us all
    And hopes that we will surely fall
    We can but hope to make you proud
    And rise above that ragged crowd

    And when again we’re Scotland bound
    They’ll remember us and the piper’s sound
    And how they wet themselves anaw
    When faced wi the Gallant Forty twa.

    God Keep you all safe.
