Canadian public pay tribute to our fallen

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. Ordinary citizens lined the overpasses of Hwy 401 from Trenton, Ontario to Toronto to pay tribute the lads on their final leg of their last journey.

    Crowds waited patiently on bridges and overpasses along the 401 for the procession to pass, waving flags and saluting the hearses carrying the 3 lads whom we lost last week.

    (All of our fallen are required to be taken to Toronto for an autopsy before being released to the families for burial.)
