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. Reading Paul Burns Obit today in the Telegraph

    Lance-Corporal Paul Burns - Telegraph

    Led me to the one about Captain Charles Upham VC and Bar who died in 1994.

    Captain Charles Upham VC & Bar - Telegraph

    Extraordinary Man and a a real true hero... The description of his exploits were indeed riveting but not only that this double VC winner had to ability to see into the future...

    A remarkable insight.....
     
  2. You can't keep a good man down. What a life Paul Burns had! His children should be the proudest on earth to have had such a dad, who plainly loved his fellow man in spite of all that had been done to him.

    He may have lost both legs in the end, but in my book, he was the tallest man around.
