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. Just spotted this one,,2-1574148,00.html

    That doesn't sound very Top Secret!
  2. "Lord Stevens of Kirkwhelpington"... ??!!
    Is that a serious title? Where the hell is Kirkwhelpington?
    You mean you can choose nay obscure little village in the arrse end of nowhere and get a peerage?
    There's hope for me yet!

    The Future Lord Slightly Nasty of Bootle
  3. Can i be King Sarge of Waterlooville??

    Can I, Can i, Huh huh huh
  4. Kirkwhelpingtonshire I'd wager. If it isn't a shire, then it should be.

    Lord Felize of Throdgington-Bandersnatch(shire)
  5. Not very secret if the press is aware of the unit. :lol:
  6. Not very current either, look at the name od the Defense sec... or the part about the Recce Unit thingy.

    Which probaly why the press have the stroy.
  7. The story was originally fed to the press on April 17th.
  8. Yet it turns up in the Times in August? I always preferred the Indy myself.

    I can't get a peerage unless I quit my application to be next pope and go for a cushy CoE job in the Lords. Cardinal of Sin perhaps.
  9. If you visit the Cryptome Search Page and type in FRU, JSG or Northern Ireland etc you can find some interesting documents. Some of the information purportedly comes from disgruntled ex-agents who are unhappy with their treatment. I do not vouch for the veracity of such claims, but the documents maybe of interest.
  10. lolol - I'm in there! :D

    Chuffed to fcuk! It's all b0ll0x, mind you!

    Edited to add: Having said that, anyone who has been anywhere over the water in the last 10 years probably has a mention, so it's not that big a deal.

    Well they went though such names as Snecky Beakys, Fragel Rock, That lot we don't talk about, before their final name of Muppets stuck.
    Was mid 80's before I found out who they where, but that is another story.
  15. Kirkwhelpington is in Northumberland, near Rothbury, charming little village.
