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. I have just been informed of the death of a former member of 22 Int Coy, 3 MI (V) Bn. Details are below.

    Roy was attached to 24 Int Coy, from the Artists in the mid 80's and then joined the Group in 1994 to 1998, with 22 Int Coy, under Mr Boggis Rolfe. Roy was 48 and died of a heart attack a week after his mother died from the same.

    Below are the details for the funeral:

    Funeral parlour - West & Coe, 372 Parsloes Ave, Dagenham RM9 5QP. 0208 592 2628. Ask for Heather. Can view Roy in the chapel of rest on Thurs & Fri 8/9.03.07 & can send flowers to the funeral parlour for the day of the funeral, or the house as people wish.

    Funeral procession will leave the house at 15:30 12.03.07. Funeral to start at 1600 at South Essex Crematorium, Corbetts Tey Rd, Upminster. Service is at the chapel. Roy will be cremated.

    If anyone wants to donate to charity, both Roy and his mum died from heart attack and so British Heart Foundation is the preferred charity - Details of how to give in memory of a loved one can be found at:

    I have also posted this on the Int Corps Website so any of his former colleague could pick it up on there as well.
  2. intli, an idea to remove his widow's details, after all there are some fruitloops out there...
  3. Apologies for being a mong. Have amended the entry on the Int Corps site as well. That's the problem these something you think of as routine and forget about the nutters...

    Consider myself suitably chastised
  4. ;) I wasn't having a go, it's just that the last thing the poor woman needs is a mentaller calling her (or worse) and knowing of the 'phone calls that some of the families received when their loved-ones were on ops, there are enough sick b'stards out there ready to do cruel things.
  5. No probs - I should have thought before posting.....duh!
