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. Fairuz is a legendary Arab singer and I don't know if I dreamt this but I do have vague memory of someone who served in Aden telling me that she quite prominent on British forces Radio in places such as Cyprus and Aden in the 1960s.
    So did I dream the conversation or is this true?

    For a bit of a mind jog go here
  2. I was in Cyprus in 60-63 and I don't recall ever hearing the name. The big hits at that time were Mustapha and Never on a Sunday
  3. Thanks for that, I could be in the wrong decade or maybe it was later in the decade! Will have to email and find out. But 'Never on a Sunday' truly a European pop classic! :wink:
