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. Today's Telegraph has a moving 3/4 page article by Chris Terrill on the death in action of Mne George Sparks.

    I have tried to find a link but failed! For those of you abroad, I will try their website later and will post a link when the article appears.

  2. I read it in the paper at lunctime, and meant to post the link.

    Have gone looking for it online, but oddly seem unable to locate it.
  3. heavy reading that, dusty room.

    May you be waiting for us at the gates with a smile on your face Sparky.
  4. Great piece of writing top job Chris.

    RIP and god speed Sparky and Tony Evans
  5. ICSJ - I agree... Amazingly dusty at my desk reading the last few words.

    RIP Royals. God Bless.
  6. The maid has very clearly not been dusting around my computer.

    I'm sure they are both dancing the flaming ******** at that big piss up in the sky.

    RIP fella.
  8. I read it this morning in the hard copy Telegraph. You wouldn't think smoking was banned in public places, I have seldom been in a smokier room.

    The article does the Corps, the author and Marine Sparks proud. Georgie will be the second Marine Sparks to pass into Corps legend.
  9. Jaisus, that fückin' wrecked me!

  10. I remember that lad, very sad :cry:
  11. RIP Royal :cry: A very moving and well-written article-never realised how dusty it is in here too...
  12. RIP ........................

    Wish I could say more.
  13. Very good read

    RIP to both of you and deepest condolences to family and friends
