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. We are looking for ex military musicians, drummers, Buglers and a Drum Major!

    We are available for all kinds of functions but are also currently recruiting in all areas of the band ie Brass, Woodwind and Percussion
    We are a uniformed band and players must be at around the grade 6 level

  2. We need some players to boost our ranks for a remembrance day parade in Barnsley on Sunday 13th November. This is due the fact that we have taken on the gig as another band has let the sponsor down and some of our current players have already agreed to help out other bands.
    We are willing to pay expenses (please contact us to discuss) and everything music and uniform wise will be provided.
    Its a short march and a service at the Cenotaph.
    This is an event to support the excellent ongoing work of The Royal British Legion as well as to respect those who give their lives through service.
    If you are able to commit to just 90 minutes (we step off at 10:30 am) to this great cause then we would be very grateful.
    Many Thanks
  3. Do any of you play a brass, woodwind or percussion instrument OR want to get back into playing? The Yorkshire Band of the Royal British Legion has just started a new military style band which rehearses on a Monday at Fontenay Barracks on Wakefield Rd, Barnsley. All uniform is provided and some superb engagements are lined up for this year and next year. Why not try something different this year? See us here Welcome to Facebook
