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. Times
     
  2. If he wasn't a Fascist then what was he doing in the U-boat?
     
  3. Bouillabaisse

    Screaming in terror as the hull imploded hopefully

    Tragically it turns out he dies of a stomach ulcer about the boat, not when it was sunk, although ulcers are remarkably painful, I understand :D
     
  5. This seems to be some sort of Shinner front organisation.

    Website

    The RBL poppy appeal rattles their cage apparently
     
  6. It's been firmly established that his main liaison in Nazi Germany was SS Colonel Veesenmayer, Hitler's coup d'etat specialist and later German ambassador to Hungary, where he claimed responsibility for the deaths of 450,000 Jews.

    Russell had earlier ordered the IRA on a terrorist bombing offensive in England in 1938.

    I bet the latest statue won't withstand PE.
     

  7. Yep.
    Commemorates "Republican Dead" of Civil War.
     
  8. Russell's mission to Germany took place after the Nazi invasions of Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg, amply demonstrating Hitler's contempt for the rights of small nations.
     
  9. I wonder if anyone knows where I could get hold of a cheap rpg :twisted:
     

  10. Too many houses nearby - PE definitely best option.
     
  11. your probably right :(
    det cord would set the motion sensor off suddenly climbing to 300 feet :D
     
  12. If the motion sensor is in the head, just take everything else off! Leave the head where it is!
     
  13. Where are the Romanies when you need them, eh!
     
  14. How much does it weigh and whats the lift capacity of a Merlin? Yoink! :)
     
  15. It sickens me that such a statue can be raised to a man who obviously supported the Nazi's, as well as terrorism. 8O

    Has Ireland no 'actual' hero's to build statue's of? Surely there must be a legion of well deserving Irish men and women who should be honoured with a statue.

    Sean Russell isn't one of those - if he was would his statue have been vandalised so badly in the past?

    If history had been different, how long would it have been before he was stabbing fellow 'Irishmen' in the back for not towing the (Nazi) party line?

    Fortunately he was a part of a small minority who thought that any price was worth paying to 'reunify' Ireland.

    On the positive side, many Irishmen from both the North and South joined the cause to fight against the facists - my Grandfather (from Co. Limerick) being one of them. :D

    Perhaps it's these brave men, who took up arms to ensure that Ireland stayed free from the tyrany of the Nazi's, who should have a memorial built for them. 8)
