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:

  2. should have been the VC but as it was the Spams doing the shooting it only warrants a GC.

    Just hope the Tabloids let him get on with his life and we don't get lurid headlines next time he's down town with his mates.

    Here's the citation


    Says it all.
  4. Hell of a story!!

    Would be nice to think they'd also give him ten minutes in a locked room with one of the spam pilots. :twisted:
  5. Well done that man, fcuking SPAM twats though. When will they fcuking learn :evil:
  6. agreed they did it before in GW1 and afghanistan even now they are jumping at shadows and cancelling flights
  7. It's nothing new - read Spike Milligan's war memoirs and you'll find that they got strafed more by the Spams in North Africa and Italy than by the luftwaffe.
    When it happened for the umpteenth time near Monte Cassino, they shot the b*gger down! The P38 pilot (with 'The Oklahoma Kid' painted on his flight jacket) was apparently quite put out to be held at gunpoint by the battery commander...

  8. Incredible citation, should have been the VC not the GC.
    An amazing young man.
  9. Good on him. Hope it doesn't change him into an arrse, though.
