Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by nodandawink, Aug 27, 2009.

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. 30 years ago today 18 British soldiers were killed in an ambush by the Provisional IRA at Warrenpoint in Northern Ireland.

    This was the single largest loss of life to the British Army resulting from terrorist action.

    The men responsible were never properly brought to justice.

    Lest we forget.
  2. There is a memorial service this afternoon in Aldershot Military Cemetery.
  3. Give my regards to all JD,I'll be down in Nov
  4. Will do.

    There is a documentary on satellite tonight at 9 about this day - though aimed more at the death of Mountbatten.
