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've got a 15 year old son who is obsessed with pop-stars and celebrities (if you count Big Brother stars as such). Hes about to do some work experince and has asked us (his parents) for some advice.

    I want to show him that the army has produced some famous people in its ranks. I know of many but other than James Blunt hes not heard of any.

    Does anyone know of any others that will help convince him that he should at least give it a thought?
