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. Excuse spelling of items name :) Pics to go up tomorrow early pm.

    This jacket was left to me about a year ago with a few other bits and apart from a touch of threadbare on one shoulder it is in obscenely good nick considering it got about a bit, North Africa and Palestine amongst other spots, considered giving it to the IWM but seems a shame for it to hang off a dummy for perpetuity.

    Unsure as to what they go for so anything within reason considered.

    Finish at 18:00 Fri 6th....
  2. Any idea on size?
