Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello. First post.

    I don't know if this is the fella I am thinking of.
    I did a search on google and this came up.
    I also ran the check against arrse.co... and nothing came up.
    So, sorry if this has been posted before, but I did check.

    I'm not a grief whore so hold your horses.
    And it is none of my f***ing business. Of course.
    But I seem to remember a chap.
    A medic. In the parachute regiment.Who I think (and I may be wrong)
    had done a stint in Afghani-Land, or was about to.

    Anyway, this chap was set upon, by a bunch of scrotes, and was
    killed.

    I have just done a search and 'Rory McWilliams's' name has come up.
    I do not know if it is him that I remember in the news article.
    But, it sort of fits the bill for some aspects.

    I hope that there are not too many cases of this in our fine sceptred
    and septic isle.

    So, Ok, didn't mean to grief whore for someone I don't know, on the first
    post.

    But, would quite like to know if anyone has any information on this, or
    could put me right as to the medic that got attacked, if this is not him.


    Anyway, I thought this post could be 'kill two birds' - introduce meself,
    and get some info on something that has been 'intriguing' me for a little
    while.


    Okay, I'm gonna sign out now.
    Just want to say:
    Rory McWilliams, R.I.P.

    20 Years old and a father of one.

  2. I'm not trolling you but he wasn't "set upon by a bunch of scrotes" he started a fight with his ex girlfriends new partner, got chinned once and went down. The "scrote" was found not guilty of manslaughter by a majority jury on the evidence of witnesses

  3. Yeah, I was just looking for this article on the news this morning and then realised it wasn't current affairs....................
