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. Any ideas where one can get hold of a couple of ammo belts for use with .303" Vickers MMG? And what would they cost?

    It's alright, I haven't gone Walt. There's a blerk in Sarf Effrica asking, presumably for "Home Defence" :D

    Many thanks.
  2. Try here in the accessories section 8)
  3. Just got a blank screen HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. One on E-Bay in Canada; US$35 at the moment, 7 days to go.

  5. I have one Vickers cloth belt I'm willing to sell(don't ask long story). PM me for details.
  6. Slightly off thread I know, I was always told as a youngster that the expression "the whole nine yards" comes from the length of a cloth Vickers belt. Anyone know if this is true?
  7. Counter suggestion: of USAAF/RAF origin, refering to the length of the belts stowed in wing panniers of aircraft. Firing off the entirety of one's ammunition would expend the "whole nine yards".
