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. He can afford it!
     
  2. Not only has he donated the building and grounds, but is thought to be assisting with the renovation costs too. Good man!

  3. Fair play and nice beret by the way!
     
  4. He can indeed, although his personal wealth shouldn't take anything away from the scale of the gesture. Not only is the property worth in the region of £7m+, but he has also promised to commit a 'substantial donation' to the renovations. Well done sir.

    Edited to add; seconded on the beret comments, it's a cracker.

  5. So can UK plc - but they didn't. The words you are looking for are"Thank You".

  6. An excellent and hugely welcome gesture.
    :thumright: Thank you your Grace.
     
  7. His generous donation, does not mean however, that his earlier daft idea to re-name the TA was any less BOLLOCKS!

    His Grace is a Top Geezer, a real Bonne Oeuf. He's done an awful lot for the Forces - the UK4U Christmas Boxes are largely down to him. People take the piss from the boxes, but they provide some cracking fun on a Christmas day.

    He has also got a Top Line in high-class tarts, and he doesn't give a toss.

    Thanks, Gerry :)
     
  9. Well he is Yeomanry. They are not exactly well known for bothering about dress regs!

    Good call on the country pad though!

  10. Honorary Colonels always wear the cap badge of their regiment plus regimental accoutrements and the rank badges of Colonel.

    This is regardless of their actual rank.

    Very nice gesture from Gerald, top bloke.
     
  11. Another wonderful gesture from Phil the Greek.
     
  12. Oh goodness me....what has he said now!
