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. 2 Armoured Regiments are to go, leaving 5 Heavy and 5 light for the 5 Multi-task brigades. My money is on 1 and 2 RTR mixing and 9/12 disbanded as I've heard terrible storys about them over the last few years?
  2. Is this gospel or did you hear it from a bloke down the pub? The current plan is to drop one sqn from each regiment.
  3. Whitehall Rumour mill, There taking another slice of RAC and INF as well as 3 Sqn Regs, Commander Combat to anouse soon
  4. This the same place you heard this:


    Or are you going to ask the same question in every forum?
  5. No who or how it's to be done is purely my guess work, 1 Tanks have no role, lost CBRN and I here neg stuff about 9/12 all the time.
  6. I think it's the two who drives those thingamagigs on tracks.
  7. No doubt you expect us to share them with you.

    BTW your spelling is shit even for a journo

I mean come on! there would be blood everywhere. Then how would a woolf dress up? No opposable thumbs! He'd need some sort of help. ramble...


  11. Your wife will be upset then!.........she loves the Special Helmets!:muhaha:
  12. Maybe a massive restructure to the Cav en route? (a la Big big regiment/divisions for the Inf)

    Maybe a yeomanry Sqn for each Reg unit?
  13. I heard 3 Heavy (1 RTR, 2RTR & SCOTS DG) and 6 Light (who gives a ****)

  15. Surely they should save the "Sarmatians", they were after all here with the Romans.

    Bring back Ray Winston, Ioan Gruffud, and Clive Owen, and now that we are an enlightend country Kiera Knightly could ride as well, instead off running around in the tree line half dressed.
