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 rations are coming

    Forget spud-bashing and tins of bully beef. A A Gill marvelled at the margarine sculptures and sampled the exquisite canapes at the military’s annual catering competition.

  6. My opinion of Mr Gill is somewhat coloured by my only interaction with him at Brecon about 15 years ago. He was a tad put out when told tha whilst we would happily store his shotgun for him, he couldn't keep his 12 bore cartridges in the armoury, and was very politely told to go away when he started getting uppity.

    A bit of a **** IMHO.
