Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Seeing fellow arsser Mysteron's avatar - the evil Captain Black - got me thinking (PERSEC permitting) have you known any officers and gentlemen with similar such sobriquets for example Troop Commander Captain Scarlet, Company 2iC Captain Blackadder, The Adjutant Captain Mainwairing ? Or perhaps you knew a Captain Kidd, Captain Birdseye, Captain Darling, Captain Slog, Captain Pugwash, Captain Corelli, Captain America, Captain Beefheart, Captain N Tenille or a Captain Kirk. Perhaps you may have served with a General Melchet, a L/Cpl. Jones or a Gunner Sugden or possibly even a Sergeant Pepper? Or those famous QARANCs Sister Sledge and Sister Matic?
