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.  
  2. A very good programme , not sure how many others caught it , especially pleased to see Captain James Hill, The Royal Fusiliers make an appearance and talk about his experiences.

    Some of you may know him better as Brigadier James Hill , The Parachute Regiment whose D-Day briefing consisted of “Gentlemen in spite of your excellent training and orders, do not be daunted if chaos reigns. It undoubtedly will.”

  3. Gerry kicked my old lad out of France at Dunkirk.
    He said to me after the war he heard many a man who claimed they had been there, but never met anyone he beleived.
    He always said the one thing you could never forget was the smoke, the large oil tanks had been set on fire and the area was covered in thick black smoke.
