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. Raising money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity, four years after his first attempt ended in a heart attack a thousand feet from the summit, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has reached the top of Everest. He's oldest Briton to do so. Exhaustion forced him to turn back when he tried to climb it last year.

  11. When the chips are down, reading a few of Rann's books or listening to his tapes, certainly picked me up, "Mind Over Matter", for one, in the past. Mr "Mad, Bad and dangerous to Know" said on TV tonight that he just constantly thinks "Plod on". This guy doesn't mind passing on the secrets to getting big balls, at all :wink: NAILS, indeed.
