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. Fred Marafono MBE passed away yesterday, a real legend. 20 years service with the Regiment.

    A sad day.
  2. RIP to one of the old & bold.
    He had an amazing career.
  3. The world is a poorer place today :(
  4. That and so many have shared so much that the spirit was there and continues on forever. One of the the most respectable of professions is the common art of soldiery which has been carried on and will be carried on. May his gods be with him

  5. May he rest in peace.
    I was fortunate to meet Fred last year and he was gracious enough to spend some time chatting about some of his exploits; incredible dits and a true gentleman.

    He seemed to be in good health at that time, any news on the cause of his demise?
  6. RIP and condolences.
  7. A shadow has passed gigantic on the sand ~ RIP
  8. An outstanding instructor back in the 80s, on the Jungle Warfare instructors Course course in Brunei. And an all round good guy.
  9. RIP.

    A sad loss indeed.

    Sincere condolences to his family.
  10. RIP.Fred . Big man, big loss.
