Honours for a ranker

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. Trooper Knighted at Gettingen, from MoD site.

    Now this is impressive, a Trooper knighted by his King on the field of battle.

    But I'm curious as to how welcome this was to the bloke in later years. Was it a benefit or a burden?. Did he stay in (or return to) the army?.

    Anyone with further info?.

    And what would be the befnefits/burden for any modern day squaddie so honoured?.

    The HAC had/has a Tpr Sir X and Sgt Sir X recently..
  3. That's a fairly normal situation for the HAC.

    Having since seen a drawing of the guy in question, one of his attackers seems to have taken part of his forehead, most of his nose, and parts of his lips - possibly a single stroke.

    Where the hell is Gettingen ... ? my tpying is getting woers
  6. A rhetorical question ... but thanks anyway.
