Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  5. This is from The Guardian 24th April

    ''However far he may be from the green, green grass of home, army spokesman Colonel Chris Vernon has become the British military's Tom Jones. In Kuwait City, Col Vernon has taken receipt of several parcels, all posted anonymously from Blighty, containing women's knickers. There is no word yet as to whether the Colonel has taken to splitting his trousers during briefings, or of any subsequent engagements at The Sands in Las Vegas.''

    And from The Sun

    THEY say girls love a man in uniform. But with Army spokesman Colonel Chris Vernon, the uniform maketh not the man.

    Fatigues or no fatigues, he is one damn fine-looking chap.

    Women across Britain are falling for the 45-year-old officer during his TV war briefings.

    Colonel Chris — as he is known — is the forces’ answer to movie pin-up Hugh Grant.

    With his steely eyes and platinum-flecked hair, the 6ft-plus soldier fields media questions with gutsy determination and unflappability.

    You can even forgive him for saying “far” instead of “fire” and “ars” instead of “hours”.

    Chris joined the Army in 1976 as a second lieutenant and went to the Sandhurst military academy. He worked his way up the officers’ ladder and is now a Colonel in the Queen’s Royal Hussars.

    Star quality ... Hugh

    The heavy tank regiment has not been sent to Iraq, but Chris jumped at the chance of playing a part against Saddam.

    And he had all the qualifications needed, having first acted as an Army spokesman in Bosnia during the mid-1990s.

    He doesn’t just look tough, he talks tough too.

    Describing the British swoop on Saddam’s Ba’ath Party leader in Al Zubayr, he said: “He’s sitting there in his little building thinking, ‘Great, have a good evening, have a good morning.’ Then, whack, we’re in, whack, he’s out and 20 of them are gone. Just like that.”

    But Colonel Chris also shows his caring side — turning his thoughts to our “brave young lads”. He’s genuine. You trust what he says. What more could a woman want?''

    The GERMANS even have a Fan Club Website :roll:

    Now that IS scary. :twisted:
