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. Two US Marine Bns to Join Next UK Deployment in Afghanistan
    BBC NEWSNIGHT is reporting that two US marine Bns will join the next UK deployment in Helmond Afghanistan. They will bring with them dozens of extra helicopters both attack and transport.
  2. HOOAAAH... watch the amount of kit they bring...
  3. F'kin hell, but watch the amount of kit thay go home with :D
  4. That's sorted the shortgae of guns then.
  5. BBC Newsnight is also reporting that the French will send 1000 troops to the Canadian sector to help out there.
  6. So will they become the USA's new best friend?
  7. No his new wife is much better looking!
  8. That's the last thing the Canadians need - 1000 cheese-eating surrender monkeys
  9. Sure its not 1000 troops to Canada?
  10. Bwahaha! Classic. :D

    Who's up next for their turn in the 'Stan? We need to make sure that whoever we send we also draft some Kingo's along as well so we can rob the Americans blind. "Helicopter regiment, what helicopter regiment? Have you lost something?" ;)
  11. 1,000 Frogs to the Canuks. Hum someone playing politics, Quebec cums ta mind.
    And Brick ya may just be right on the Kingo, rob um blind.
  12. It really is an Army myth that our dear departed Kingos was a bunch of thieving gobsh!te Scouse gits always on the rob and causing punch ups all over western Germany... and Berlin :roll:
  13. Sum Myth.
    Only served in same garrison Twice.
    Once was enough until shared same camp and mess.
    Mind you it could have been the Dukes.
  14. If the BBC report is true then Sarkozy has certainly shown some political courage, if perhaps some stupidity as well. Domestic opposition is going to love beating him over the head with it.

    More than likely be 1000 'French' troops of many different nationalities but with French officers leading them = French Foreign Legion
