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. Capitaine Benoît Dupin, OC 3 Coy, 2e REG, a FFL Engineer unit serving in RC-E has been KIA by an IED in the Alassay Valley during a recce.

    PO Lefort, from the FRA Navy SOF unit "Commando Trepel" (not a Marine as stated in the link) was KIA by SAF on Saturday 18 Dec during a night Op in Kapisa. At least 20 INS were killed during this Op.

  4. Correction to my first message: Capt. Dupin was KIA in a TIC which included SAF and RPGs and the eventual intervention of AHs. He was not killed by an IED.
