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. This is to relay that my old comrade Staff Sgt A.P.Thompson passed away on Saturday 24 January. He was 93.

    He served in the Royal Corps of Signals and was attached to the 59th Div. during the Normandy landings. He fought through the Caen battles and the Orne crossings and the bridge at Niemengen.

    He later worked for the GPO as a telephone engineer in Kendal Cumbria and was awarded the Imperial Service Medal on retirement.

    He is sadly missed by his comrades left behind.
  2. RIP Old Soldier.
