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. Just had some bad news of a friend of mine who possibly comitted suicide 2 years ago he was in 2
    Para and his first name was Gareth, if anyone out there can give me some info it would be greatley appreciated. This all might sound a bit skettchy but I haven't been in touch with him for about 3 years and with all the recent goings on, just thought he was busy and as squaddies are, were all pretty carp at staying in touch.
