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:

    Those that knew Dan will be devastated to hear that he tragically died when a military static line parachute jump went wrong yesterday. This was his first ever static line jump. His main chute failed to open correctly and although he cut it away and, I beleive, managed to deploy his reserve it was too late to slow him down.

    Our thoughts are with his family and his girlfriend - they must be devastated.

    As many journalists use ARRSE as a source of military information and comment for many of their articles you should know you have now identified not only him but may provide enough information to lead the media to his family as well.

    Well done

  5. Absolutely terrible news. A very very cruel irony - working so hard for so long just to be cut down at his prime.

    RIP fella.
  6. Rest in Peace. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this painful time.

    Very sad news. RIP.
  13. My condolences too. My teams (Mansfield)goalkeeping coach died yesterday after a heartattack on the pitch in the knockup, right in front of the crowd. Terrible. It just brings it back to you that death reaches out at times. My sympathies to Capt Wrights family
