Whats it all about?

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. Speaking as a confirmed BOF, of 1965-1989 vintage, I must admit to being a little mystified by some of the new arrse terminology.

    I am now familiar with the meaning of WTF, FYI etc. but some of the other acronyms/slang are beyond me.

    Would it be an idea to introduce a 'Jargon Buster' type of lexicon to give us old duffers some idea of what the latest bunch of 'thrusting killers from the sky' are talking about.

    Might be a bit of fun. As long as it's not taken too seriously!
  2. EDM,

    Check out ARRSEpedia - it's all in there.

    Ice :)
  3. Ah, a kindred spirit...

    For my own part I treat internet abbreviations in the same way as I treat text speak. As soon as I come across one I stop reading.

    I find it helps regulate the blood pressure, innit?
  4. Thanks Ice and a whatsit.

    I always wondered what a Custard Howitzer was!
  5. No probs, I need to look up that one myself :)
