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. Any ideas what it is that makes this guy so outstanding. He does it on a shoestring (I support when I can - more could do so!). Is it having been a soldier, rapport with the men - what?
  2. Iraqi Police or ACF Instructor:

  3. I dearly wish more people would read his stuff.

    He's apparently not getting on well with the senior staff though, judging by some of his recent dispatches.

  4. BG Brooks still carries a grudge but he has been overruled. Initially he had denied Yon permission to embed. Yon has made alot of friends with his reporting and is a great advocate for what we are trying to accomplish.
  5. good article , facts from the ground is what we need more than tabloid media, who exist only to sell papers.
  6. I think it is as you surmised that he is respected for his military service, the quality of his reporting and his fearlessness. Not many journalists go into harms way and the one's that do are special.
