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. Preston North End will open the gates free of charge to members of the Armed Forces for the Remembrance Day weekend fixture against Hull City.

    The Friday 12th November encounter will see North End welcome serving and retired troops to Deepdale to enjoy the game for free, with supporters given the chance to salute the country's heroes.

    Officers from the Army, Navy and RAF will be invited to take part in parades and the regular entertainment package at Deepdale, including events such as the Hot Shot Half-Time Draw and Beat The Duck. The night will also feature a pre-match build-up of patriotic music to represent the shared pride in our country.

    On the night, North End will sport shirts adorned with symbolic poppies to show PNE's support for the traditional annual appeal, highlighting the Football League's support of the campaign in front of a live Sky TV audience. Poppies are available from the main office reception at Deepdale for anyone wishing to make a donation to the Poppy Appeal.

    Current or former serving officers from all of the nation's armed forces are eligible to claim a free ticket for this fixture by presenting relevant ID or documentation at the PNE ticket office. Tickets can only be issued with relevant proof of status and where possible, troops are asked to attend the game in uniform so that they can join in the celebrations honouring our heroes.

    Tickets for this game are currently on general sale, and tickets can be purchased from £22 for adults, £13 for concessions and £5 for juniors via MyPNE.com, 0844 856 1966 or personal visits to the ticket office. Please note that free tickets for troops can only be claimed in person at the ticket office to ensure that tickets end up in the correct hands.
