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. My Grandad has just passed away. We are trying to contact his mate in Queensland about funeral details but cannot find where he put the bloody phone number. I have the address, but posted from the UK it would not reach Australia in time as the funeral is next friday im told.

    I was thinking if it was posted witin Australia it would be quicker??

    I will reimburse the full cost through Paypal if it is done.

    So im asking anyone living within Australia if they could please post a note that I will PM.
  2. No aussies here today?

    Not all choking on that dust I hope.
  3. You mate, have saved the day. I even got to send a personalized card, with the front cover being a spoof "Bullseye!" magazine, personalized headline, and uploaded a Grandad pic to it too. He is an old darts mate, so he will like that.

    ..oh, and it cost $11.05 Aus. for express next day 6 UK quid. Bargain!
  4. Great site this, never lets you down.

    My Grandad was a very proud Sherwood Forester from 1947-53(59)
  5. Probably a bit late to help, but you could try contacting ARRSE user auscam.

    He lives in Queensland (Brisbane I think) and seems like a decent bloke, he is usually on line in the early hours.

    Condolences on your Grandad.

    Edited to add, this is him>>
  6. I think we have the address mixed up here. If I put:

    24 Kindred St, Alexandra Hills QLD 4162 into google maps....

    I get:

    24 Kindred St, Burwood Heights QLD 4161, Australia

    Jimmy N Nelson
    24 Kindred St
    Alexandra Hills

    .....this is what was written down, although I would believe he could c0ck it up without the hearing aid.

    Now will it get to the addy or should I send another just in case? I suspect I have the wrong postcode.

    Thank you all.
  7. Send another mate - t'is only 6quid a time.
  8. That's a nice card mate - nice touch. :)
  9. Too late to be of any assistance now I think.

    I am living just down the road from Alexandra Hills.
  10. Thanks for the offer mate. I used the company easy-touch recomended and made contact.

    He built that house himself if you every see it.
