Is St Eligius still a Saint?

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. I have heard he has lost his saint hood, confirmation from zero requested. If this proves true will we then have a Mr Eligius day?[/b]
  2. Who cares...he was a bloody Frog!
  3. Never trust a froggie!
  4. Saint or Mr its still a damned good excuse for a day on the piss!
  5. if he is now a mr, does that mean all the stained glass windows, in garrison churches depicting his features are null and void? :?
  6. no they always will be stained glass windows :lol:
  7. That brings back memories. Not that I was on the urine myself (!), but I had occasion to visit a REME unit during St Eligius Day. Certainly made an impression on a non-British passenger. Effect enhanced by the fact that strange REME rituals had just finished so no obvious explanation, just soldiers going about the camp wearing togas. Impression on puzzled passenger possibly also enhanced by the fact that I was too preoccupied at the time to explain or comment.
