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. I did a search and couldn't find anything.

    I know he is one of our light blue brethren, but he is a truly remarkable man!

    "Bill Foxley, who has died aged 87, was considered the most badly burned airman to survive the Second World War; his example and support became an inspiration to later generations who suffered similar severe disabilities."

  2. He comes up if you put his name into Google. incredable quiet courage, every day of his life.

    All that and no G.C.?
     
  4. NAILS - 'Nuff said!

    PS: Sorry, Insert: MEGA before 'NAILS'.
     
  5. Yeah, shocking that he wasn't recognised.

    However, unlike some he didn't need to make a public fuss about it.

    I'd like to think that no matter what was said or done, he was happy and satisfied within himself that he had done his utmost for his colleagues in that plane.

    You're right; nails as anything!
