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. I was just wondering , do any of you serving soldiers ever actually use the term ''Sandpit''? I had never heard of it until i logged on to arrse after my second Telic tour . Is it a civvie expression ? Just wondering .
  2. No, everyone I know uses it. Thing is it doesn't have the same ring to it as, say, 'that sh!thole'.

    Afghanistan should logically be referred to as the Rockery.
  3. Sandpit or Sandy place used as veiled speach.
  4. Our US chums call it the "Sand box".
  5. Sorry, that's reserved for Belfast.
  6. Once upon a time RMAS was known as 'Sandpit'
  7. Don't you mean "Sandbags"? for RMAS. Pompous name, pompous place...
