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. 28 years today since the winning slimmer of the year. :D

    Here's the proof that American's (well NORAID anyway) don't do irony: a Hunger Strike Commemorative Plate from 3 years ago.

  7. still makes me chuckle to think of the lads putting their horror bag sandwiches on his grave in Miltown!!! :D

    Oooops I'll get ma coat,I thought ye were talkin aboot Jimmy Shand here :D

  12. IIRC the title of this thread was prod graffiti about 28 years ago. The irony (which I think was intentional) makes me chuckle.
  13. It's from graffiti seen around the Shankhill in the early 80's. It was also part of a chant heard at certain football grounds but that would also take too much explaining. :wink:
