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. Where should the half that isn't going to the ICRC go?

    I'd like to see at least some of it go to Combat Stress, because they look after all the Services and they don't get the same amount of publicity as ABF and RBL.

    Maybe the Mirror could give it to one of the big charities and let them split it up.
     
  3. I think with the amount of monies that they've made from the rights to these extremely damaging pictures, if managed properly they could benefit a vast number of charities in an interest only or capital assurance form...

    Potentially this cash could be used to gain further funding that could dig many a smaller charity working independently out of holes and allow them to continue there work, as well as giving the bigger ones a boost to cover areas they ‘re under funded to breach at present…
     
  4. St. Dunstans and BLESMA are both small, underfunded and very worthwhile.
     
  5. £5000 a pop every time one of the photos was syndicated!
