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. Good to hear, IIRC they had said they one guy had committed suicide, nice to hear that it's bullsh1te.
  2. Is there a deliberate policy by the Government to keep this situation low key ? These folks don't seem to get much attention at all, and the fact that their names are being supressed can't be helping to keep them in the public eye.
  3. Is it really being supressed? or is no one really taking an interest. Stories only hold the media's interest for a very limited amount of time.
  4. Good news that they are still alive, but shocked at how little media coverage there has been compared to covering the slow death of a fat thick should-never-have-been!
  5. I've read that the foreign office's policy is to keep these things low key. The family of a hostage complained about that a while ago.
