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. From the General Register Office statistics, last year one baby girl in Scotland was given the name ' PORPHYRIA' !!

    Poppy 63
    Poppy-Ann 1
    Porphyria 1
    Porsha 1

    WTF were the parents thinking? I'm guessing that they didn't actually mention this to any medical staff. Either that or the maternity ward staff just sniggered and let them carry on.

    (And 'Porsha' is going to be correcting other people's 'mistake' for the rest of her life.)
     
  2. its pronounced porshh by us english people which means it is right!

  9. George and Bush spring to mind. Not once but twice. Will that family ever learn.
