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. A soldier who saved the lives of two injured comrades who had strayed into a minefield was awarded the George Cross today.

    Cpl Mark Wright died in September
    Without any regard to his own safety Cpl Mark Wright went to the aid of fellow paratroopers who had their legs blown off after accidentally walking into an unmarked minefield.

    After helping to treat their wounds and calling for a helicopter to winch them to safety, he himself fell victim to a landmine and died before he could be taken to hospital.
