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. The more I hear about this bloke the better he gets. The stereotypical view would be that a scotsman wouldn't give up his pint for anything. This bloke is donating half the pints bought for him to a forces charity.

    Top bloke Nuff said.

    700 pints-worth of Smeato’s hard earned stash are to be whisked away and are now going to go to the Erskine charity.

  2. Seconded. Don't know if Big John ever served in the Armed Forces. I suspect he would have made a bloody good soldier.

    He should definately recieve something in the next Queen's Honours List. Knighthoods have been earned for far less, IMHO.
     
  3. As the saying goes "Once beaton, forever Smeaton!".
     
  4. Good lad. I'm increasingly impressed by the bloke. MBE anyone? Make him an honourary member of ARRSE at least
     
  5. Carlsberg don't do heroes, but if they did.....

  7. I hope it doesn't overwhelm him too much, once the media hype dies down, he will be going be back to his normal life with a bump.
    Personally I think he would need somebody like Max Clifford to advise him how to deal with fame and use any money to set himself up for life and finally move out of his Parents house, get a few Holiday to get away from it all for a bit and find some purpose to his life after all this, he may go back to his old job but it won't be quite the same.

    good luck to the Guy , he sounds he is halfway there to dealing with it.
     
  8. John has my utmost respect, not only for what he did on the day, but also for his heartfelt belief that he is nothing more than an ordinary bloke. Far from it.

  10. John is a big Rangers fan and was a guest of honour at Ibrox last Saturday for the friendly against Chelsea,took a wave from the centre circle before the game and was played off to Rule Britannia :D :D
     
  11. Top bloke :D
     
  12. Lets see if the state actually award him something! He deserves it.
     
  13. Don't be daft, he DOES deserve it but some overpaid footballer/actor/politition will most likely get it.

    Hope someone proves me wrong. :wink:
     
  14. Big John's a Hun?! God, I did'nt think it was possible to like this guy anymore than I did already - but I was wrong!
