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. Technically desertion in wartime can result in the death penalty. These charges were the result of finding his personal effects in Falluja.
     
  2. I realize that these charges stem partially from what they found in Falluja, but it still suprises me that the larceny charges carry a stiffer penality.

    They would drill into us to never lose your weapon, I quess they meant it. :wink:
