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. During today's marathon, I had the privilege of watching two gentlemen wearing conspicuous Help for Heroes t-shirts disappear into the distance. Fit bastards.

    I'm glad they're representing the charity in the US. A quick google post-marathon revealed that the gentlemen in question are Billy and Simon, and that they haven't met their fundraising goals yet.

    Although I don't know these gents personally, I nevertheless (as a random bod) encourage you to donate here, as they are obviously doing a good thing.


    PS: A quick check on the marathon page reveals that Simon finished in 3:33:35. Not bad at all. Shows bags of commitment to the cause.
