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. Does anyone know what this means?

    I'm trying to research my grandfather's time with 3 Mons in North West Europe during World War 2.

    His service records say he was reduced to the rank of lance corporal for this offence in April 1945.

    Does anyone know what the WOAS bit stands for?

  2. Almost certainly the abbreviation is for Whilst On Active Service. Hope this helps.
  3. Cheers very much for that
  4. Wonking on active service.
