Johnson Beharry VC

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. WAR hero Johnson Beharry had his Victoria Cross tattooed on his back – and says it hurt more than being blown up.

  2. Maybe it's just me, but I have to ask why?
     
  3. If he's at Founders Day today I'll spike his drinks and get him to show it.

    Subtle...
     
  5. because he can, good to see that he's still the humble soldier that he was when he was awarded it and it hasnt gone to his head.

    I'd have had it done on my face (in Henna obviously).
     
  6. Why not...at least it's come out quite well.

    I once knew someone who had their rank tattooed on their arm...new chevron each time he was promoted...now, that's chad.
     
  7. It just comes up as a X on this PC

    buggered if he got to WO!

    I would say he has earned the right to do whatever he wants!
     
  10. I met a Para who had his wings and rank tattooed on his arm. I wonder if he's had them re done on his chest to fit with C95?
     
  11. He sure has.
     
  12. It actually looks pretty good. He could have got something far less tasteless and vain.

    Relating to him: Is he not allowed to see active service now because of the injuries he received? (I vaguely recall reading something along those lines in "sniper 1")

    Shame really.
     
  13. IMHO, thats pretty fcuking super cool!

    Fair play to him. Would be different, however, if he did that but didn't actually have the medal... THAT would be chad.
