Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Sorry, folks, I know we've been begging non-stop, but I've just been contacted with a new case that needs a LITTLE bit of help.

    MDN is out of contact, I've taken the plunge and said "We can do this".

    Basically, we have an ex-Falklands PTSD case. No money, life not working out too well, jobs come and go .... He currently has no money for food or electricity, no hot water, heating, or even a working bathroom, but a SSAFA caseworker has managed to get him though Christmas, and pay electricity. Longer term there are solutions being found, but the "Flash to Bang" need is ...
    Now I probably spend that on wine in a month [at least :oops: ].

    Good people of ARRSE, can I ask for one more small Christmas rattle of the bowl to just get this guy sorted?

    Could we get the job done by bedtime? 8)

    Not a clue ... MDN has the numbers, and he's off-line.

    I'll just have to guess :roll:

    £175 is a piece if pi66 for ARRSE ... especially if some newbies join the "Feel Good, Donate" experience.
     
  5. Ok chaps at my reckoning we need another £75.....come on....

    oh...and Blue...NEVER be sorry.....the power that is Arrse will provide :)

    Horsa has raised a little bit over the last couple of days. I'll round it up and send it off.

  9. Indeed there are other people out there.....of 40,000 odd members (some more odd than others :) ) 460 are online.........



    .....oh, was that an unsubtle hint? :)

    Well I don't want Horsa's money getting mixed up with mine, do I? A bear might turn nasty, even though he's been taken to lunch by three lovely ladies today!
     
  14. Fcuk it I get paid in USD via UK so I got a 40% pay rise last month :D

    Plus Fate can be a funny thing so best keep her sweet :twisted:

    Ad there's me getting faintly moist as the tourist rate staggered back to $1.45 .... buggrit.

    Anyway, who else is joining the party?

    Sort a former mate ... he was a teenager when we went through the Falklands, and it's still sitting there on top of him.
    Lucky old sods like me just had to survive endless tours of MoD ... think on :wink:
