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. I see some of our brethren have received awards from Op Telic. One of which was an MC for a BK in the airborne brotherhood. Well done to them all.
  2. Do you know exactly what he got it for ? As there is no mention on mod site.

    Not to belittle him...

    He donned his pink lid during an artillery duel and wandered around the battery position with a cigar lit.

  4. and that is worthy of a MC?
  5. It is when you're getting the shit shelled out of you!
  6. :?: as I remeber it, it was G Bty who were under fire as they moved on to the gun posn. F bty had received one round in front of their position. Another question, the 16 AABde website says that they were in the middle of a fire mission when they got counter battery fire, and that they left the guns and got in the trenches. Is that true?
  7. G bty were under fire as they drove to a position on the Haamas canal and at a couple of positions further north. F and I btys were both shelled with airburst when G bty went to Nasiriyah. As for the guys leaving the guns........ I'm not F bty and wasn't there.
