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. Twin brothers and Major's Jimmie and Ron James, 64, are to retire from the Army after 50 years service. They enlisted together aged 15 and joined the 10th Hussars based at Paderborn. Both were RSM's before being commissioned as LE's.

    That's definitely doing your bit, they must be pretty much the last serving personnel who wore battle dress - though I am ready to be corrected on that point!

    I wouldn't fancy either of their medal mounting bills. They must have 10 each, at least.
  2. Look down....
  3. Look up.
  4. Look down.
