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. In these days of doom and gloom, where you turn on the TV and see houses repossessed, people out of work, alcohol increasing in price etc., I thought we should have some stories to cheer us up.

    To start off

    My 30 bottle wine kit is almost ready for bottling, at about 75p a bottle you can't complain.
  2. I bought two fairly mediocre tickets from an agency for Wales v Ireland, and they've just given me a double upgrade to two bloody good tickets!
  3. Jade Goody is about to drop dead any day now. I can't wait.

    It must be almost 40 years since I had crabs.
  5. Surely the recent news that "it is possible to buy enough alcohol to exceed the male weekly guidelines for less than £3.50." clicky

    Edited to add link to site that focuses only good news (albeit from a septic point of view). clicky
  6. I found a pound coin behind the sofa.
  7. I've been left alone with a pack of custard creams and bourbons.

    Years and years ago I said "Whatever useless schemes I pour my money into, it will do better than giving it to some useless City tosspot in a Paul Smith suit who thinks a Porsche is an aspirational buy".


    No, really. Fucking Fnar.

  9. i found six in the wifes purse
    crafty theiving cow
  10. I had a five fingered shuffle and it was good.
  11. Rays of sunshine have just broken through the clouds over Guildford for the first time today.
  12. The fat, useless bosses son isn't in today, he's supposedly ill.
    So I don't have to look at his fat face, whilst he sits there skiving off work & gorging on pies.
    The cnut!

    Plus I have my Metallica tickets now for next Wednesday in Brum.
  13. I have finally got rid of a certain moral sucking, drain of a 'friend' from my life after months of trying AND someone just brought me chealsea rocks!!!!!!!!
