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. It has just been broadcast on Sky News that there is to be a presentation of 2 GCs'. This will be broadcast live on Sky News at 1430hrs. I am assuming that the full list of operational honours and awards for last summer will be published at the same time or at midnight.

    The Sunday Telegraph was speculating that SSgt Oz Schmid would get a posthumous GC. From what has been written about him it would seem richly deserved.
  3. The list will be published at 0900 tomorrow. There is a press facility today for some recipients.
  4. Speculation is that the second will also sadly be posthumous and go to Captain Dan Shepherd, another ATO.

    Some comfort for their families but what a shame neither will ever know
  5. So you should probably not add to that speculation...
  6. cheers barbs.
  7. On BBC news 24 now.

    Breaking News on Auntie - 2 ATO's awarded GCs. No other details.
  9. SSgt Olaf Schmid GC and SSgt Kim Hughes GC.
  10. Seeing as I was wrong that's a lesson learned
  11. Total respect & well deserved to the recipients
  12. That was very humbling to watch (sky news). most deserving.
  13. A very worthy award with a citation like that.
