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. Seen by Stonkerson #1 at a commercial truck servicing operation 2 minutes from the Stonkerpalace in Candleford, we think this thing comes from the DLO complex down the road in Bicester. Anyone tell me what it is? [​IMG]

    spotted by Stonkerson #2in a Frog car park in downtown Bourg Ste Maurice 10 says ago.

    Any offers?

  12. Probably in the same place as the TSC502 these days, either skipped or mouldering in the Corps museum, which is where 502 yellow should have been 20+ years ago when I had it!

    jarrod's propensity for creating unusual motor homes out of ex-Mil vehicles has much to answer for.
