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. BBC Link

    Anyone care to hazard a guess as to how he got where he did?

    Ord_Sgt RIP

    Sounds well dodgy..
     
  3. SOP when someone goes missing on a ship (as opposed to seen going over the side) is a 'thimblehunt'. For exercise, the subject usually gets himself well and truely hidden and the exercise drags on. In reality, a search sticks to the places the subject would likely go in the course of his duties or other lawful occasions. Not found, assume he's overboard.

    From the BBC link in post one,

    What at first sounds like a contradiction may actually mean he was in a void above the storeroom. Well hidden. Can one fall up?

    Rations, broken leg and back injuries? Sounds well dodgy as Ord Sgt says. Police involvement speaks volumes.
     
  4. All sounds a bit weird, what the hell went on, will we ever know?
     
  5. From the bits we have seen I formed opinion that he was being assaulted on the ship (well, he was from NI). Had hidden himself away.
