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. Polly Toynbee, Jo Brand and Shami Chakrabarti.
  2. So what? In the middle of a recession, and in a part of the U.K. that has been fairly badly hit with job losses lately business comes a calling. By all accounts this company are well equipped and well capable of dismantling this hulk with minimum risk. It's what they specialise in. Would you rather it was ripped to bits on a beach by a bunch of Indians wearing flip flops and armed only with hacksaws and wrenches? Several environmental groups have come out and expressed no problem with this instance have they not?
  3. It makes a change. In the past we demolished their warships for free. :D
  4. Some Lamb or Beef.
  5. Given the strong historical connection between France and Scotland, perhaps we could send them Gordon Brown.
  6. That was for pleasure/sport and not for profit :)
  7. Instead of dismantling it, we should repair it and give it to the RN in lieu of the CVFs........then invade France.
  8. Why scrap it? It must be worth more either as affordable housing or a detention centre.

    Or park it in the Thames and use it as a car park.

  10. Das Reich x 4.
  11. The way the Navy's going, it looks like we've got the sixth HMS Illustrious.
  12. Its in Hartlepool.

    Why worry?
  13. Surely it would make a good target for an exercise somewhere in the sea and/or a suitable wreck for divers who want three eyes.

    Why not get it shipped inland to a training area and plonked down... Useless but would look fecking awesome next to your stag position.
  14. Surely a free aircraft carrier!

    Anyone know anyone with some aircraft they need scrapping?
