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. Gents up here in Chiang Mai Thailand we have a a fair sized Brit community many of who are former service men.
    A debate started last night, over a few beers, on forthcomeing resizeing of the Brit Army and the infantry in perticular.
    Tales up to Ten battalions being disbanded and as few as Two where mentioned.
    Vairious positions where adopted as to who and when would go.
    Is there anyone who actually knows the correct story, on the number and names of battalions?
    Will the disbanded battalions be the ones with poor recruiting records or will it be a pure management choice by the Army Board?
    We have veterents from WW2 to First Gulf so please help.
