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. Does any body here know were the 4 Wombat Shells and The Brass Bell (The ones that The Highlanders display infront of there Birgade HQ) come from? We set them up every day but know one (not even people who have been in for over 30 years) knows where they came from? I've heard everything from Kosovo to Brunei but never had or seen any proof! Any rumors or myths are also welcome.

    are they wombat or ww2 recoiless rifle rounds?
  3. They're wombat shells. But thats all we know about them. No one knows where they came from or why we put them on display every day. But no one has a clue about the bell!

  5. The Wombat shell's appeared after amalgamation possibly from the Gordons as there were some in Berlin and the bell is gordons as well I think but it may be Queens Own.
