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. BBC Breaking news - no further info yet so no link.

    RIP Sir. Condolences to his family.
  2. Most probably many more. They are on operations afterall and it gets a little dangerous from time to time.
  3. A rhetorical question, but point taken.

    British soldier killed in Iraq
    29 Dec 06
    It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a UK serviceman was killed yesterday, Thursday 28 December 2006, in Basrah, southern Iraq.

    The soldier, from 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, was taking part in a routine patrol in Basra City when the Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle he was travelling in was targeted by a roadside bomb. He was very seriously injured and airlifted to the Field Hospital at Shaibah Logistics Base, but unfortunately died later as a result of his injuries. There were no other casualties.

    Next of Kin, who have now been informed, have requested a period of grace before further details are released.


    Rest in Peace young man, God be good to those he leaves behind.
