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. A pair of yacht thieves apparently starved to death, an inquest in Truro, has heard.Peter Clarke, 49, and his lover Sharon Arthurs-Chegini, 46, (pictured) stole a luxury boat from Mylor harbour in Cornwall in March 2005 and sailed it to the nearby port of Fowey, where they were both arrested and appeared in court.

    But they skipped bail and police issued a warrant for their arrest and the couple then stole another yacht from a harbour in Villa Nore, Portugal, and apparently sailed south.

    Their bodies were found badly decomposed months later after the boat, Skipper VII, was spotted floating 12 miles off the coast of Senegal by fishermen on 7 September 2006.

    Arthurs-Chegini's diary revealed they drank seawater and their own urine after running out of fresh water. She also revealed the pair had not eaten for four weeks.The yacht's rudder was jammed and the sails torn. The hull was encrusted with shellfish suggesting they had been adrift for over a month.
  2. Why didn't they sail it to a bloody port!
  3. Because they were dead. :roll:
  4. Well they have definitely made a case for the award
  5. Brilliant. Perhaps we should do this to all thieves :D
  6. I don't think sending them on a cruise however one way is the answer to thieves, feeding them feet first into a woodchipper on the other hand is cheaper quicker and ecologically sound.
  7. We'd make our money back in no time with the 'survivor' reality TV special. The first reality show ever to feature criminals devouring one another out of desperation. Ratings would be through the roof.
