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. Dunno if this has been done on here before, but it always seems to generate a few laughs, all the aspects of Squaddy life, the slang, mentality etc, that you can never ever get out of your system, i.e how long it took you after de-kitting to stop bulling shoes, hard-targetting down to the corner shop, forcing your kids to make Bed-blocks, or giving name, rank and number whilst cashing a cheque at the bank etc.

  15. realise it's perfectly possible to be patriotic and still vote Labour. realise civvy jobs are just as worthwhile. look out the window before you decide what to wear rather than at Part 2 orders to see what someone else says you are allowed to wear.
