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. Greetings fellow ARRSERS. I am trying to find out info on behalf of a mucker. ( and for fooks sake no it's not me) he was british airman in the suez crisis, however the details are sketchy?

    NAME: Thommas Horton

    ARM : R.A.F.

    No other relevant info apart from mothers names, sisters etc.

    Any pointers are welcome....................please!

    There is nothing regards citations/medals etc just a name and arm.

    any help greatly received

    Cheers..........N.W.


    Edited once for being a spazz.

    Would his details be inscribed on the edge of the medals?
     
  11. Me mucker doesn't have his medals............that's the point! his brother is being a diick, he doesn't have any access to his fathers history so, i said i would check it out.


    Iwould appreciate any pointers mate!
