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. Sky news are now confirming that two British Soldiers were killed today by an Afghan Army gunman in the Lashkar Gah area.

    This is shocking and terrible news.

    Rest in Peace to them both. My condolences to their families.

    RIP lads.

    Why oh why dd foreign stations air the story first? Russian tv was well off the mark before BBC News 24 mentioned it.

    What a waste.

  12. I don't get it: did the Afghan think he could shoot these two and just walk away, or did he get so wound up he didn't care about getting slotted?

    And what does this say for the state of the relationship between Brit and Afghan troops more generally? Reading the American press, they've had about 200 incidents of this nature over time, and their assessment is that very few if any of them are about being Taliban sympathisers: just (like this one) pissed-off Afghans settling some kind of personal grievance.

    Utter madness.

    RIP lads.
