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 know it has appeared in the Celebrity Death thread, but I reckon he deserves his own thread. Clive Dunn (aka LCpl Jones from Dads Army) has passed away today. He was 92 and had re-located to Portugal some years ago to live out the remainder of his life away from the spotlight and the public eye.* Thanks for the memories - "they don't like it up 'em"! :)

    * Take note the likes of Bruce Forsyth and Dennis Skinner!

  11. End of an era to be sure.
  12. "Doing a Jonesy" (while on parade) is a common British military expression thanks to Clive Dunn.

    God bless and thank you,

    Any intel on the disposition of his jet-ski?
  14. That's a shame, another famous actor from my youth shuffles off the mortal coil.

    Private Pike must be the only one from the Walmington-on-Sea platoon still standing.

    The youngsters only know who he was because of the inteminable repeats, a certain sign of sucess. I hope he got repeat fees from them. So we'll be seeing them all again every week-end for the next few decades.
  15. The curse of dads Army stikes again, I see
