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. The best line from the article was this.

    The SAS has helped to defeat a murderous web of al-Qaeda car bombers in Baghdad that brought devastation to the capital, the top US commander in Iraq said yesterday as he heaped praise on the unit’s efforts.

    General David Petraeus, who is due to leave his post in Iraq shortly, also dismissed the notion that American and British military relations had been strained by the recent offensive in Basra, emphasising that the problem of tackling militias in the southern port city had been rightfully Iraqi-led.
  2. Cheers. Do they qualify for any US medals? :wink:
  3. Do they have to salute American warrant officers?
  4. They probably do but any award will probably be kept secret. A unit citation is likely such as the Presidential Unit Citation the PPCLI received.But its not about the gong its the show that counts right ?
  5. Oh dear, from Genghis Bush himself? I bet the lads will hang that in the bog sharpish. :D :D :D

  6. Oh for God's sake, don't let the Brits hear us complimenting them, it'll go to their frickin' heads. :lol:
  7. :D
