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. Similar to the escapade by Royal.

    Wounded man gets the good seat, whilst the aviator clings to the outside, the heli flys out of an area, that another Apache couldn't get in to due to weight of fire.

    Watch here
  2. Wrong link CF. But ironically, a very worthy link indeed.

    Well done to all involved.
  3. I see graves
  4. Yes wrong link but good on the crew if this happened.
    Did you see the text book landing from the graves link. I think the pilot filled it up with kangaroo juice :wink:
  5. Cheers Travelez, that is the one I wanted, but I double linked. I have another thread on the war graves.
  6. intersting wargrave link. Minor point; isn't the accompanying music some sort of pre WW1/Easter Uprising IRA ditty? How ironic........
  7. It's an Eric Bogle ballad known variously as Willie McBride, The Green Fields of France or No Man's Land. It was inspired by seeing the grave of a 19 yr old soldier killed in France in WWI. Given the protagonist's Scots/Ulster Scots name, I think it's safe to rule out any Irish Republican link.

  8. Lyrics to be found here.


    Durr failed to spot Carrots link.
  9. Look here:


    The song was written in 1976 after a visit by Bogle to a British cemetary in France.
