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. Came across this guy on the net and he is talking about hostage rescue situations. He claims to be ex Reg but only appears to have the sort of knowledge that you would garner from reading books. He doesn't talk in depth about any aspects of a "building assault" and makes little use of Regiment terminology.

    He also states that the regiment "when he was in" had bodged kit and that they learnt a lot from GSG9, which is strange given that we helped them form as a unit and often sent men on their ops as advisers.

    Uber Walt or cool ex reg, you decide?

  2. Having had a more thorough listen I'll take the GSG 9 bit back, but it doesn't change the fact that he doesn't speak in a way that an ex reg guy does. If you listen to Eddie Stone or Chris ryan, bonafide reg members, they speak in a more informed and thorough way when describing ops. He speaks as if his knowledge was gained from a book. Might be wrong but his claims don't ring true.

    Locked for being tedious. And for not putting it the right forum.
