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. An ex-Royal Marine who was the youngest serviceman to receive the
    Military Cross has put his medal up for auction so that he can support his family.

    Liam Armstrong, 27, of Carlisle, won the medal in 2003 for bravery and
    leadership in Afghanistan.

    Sad he wants to sell it but £30,000 won't go far.

    Short term solution to another problem.
  4. Well, like already said - his to do with what he sees fit!
  5. Its a pity he has to do it but as he earned it he is entitled to whatever he likes with it. I hope the Corps can muster up and buy it for their museum
