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. what an inspirational bloke! Good for him!
     
  2. Brave guy, and it's good that the army accepts this sort of thing. Is it routine to allow/consider personnel who've lost limbs/eyes, or was an exception made here?
     
  3. It's routine practice now. To go back into a combat role you still have to pass the relevant fitness tests CFT, PFT etc.
     
  4. Good for him!
     
  5. Clearly the phrase 'they don't make them like that anymore' is patently untrue!

    Well done soldier.
     
  6. inspirational!

  9. Absolutely awesome, well done that man.
     
  10. Well done that man :clap:

    Just like Douglas Barder he should be an inspiration to those who follow
     
  11. Quote- “I don’t look at myself as disabled — just slightly less abled now and then.”

    Cup half full. Top bloke.
     
  12. Well done him :D
     
  13. Another example of 'One of the Best' - a British Infantryman - peerless.

    Such a disgrace that they are treated so appallingly by politicians, most of whom have never had a greater adventure or stressful experience than running for a train.

    PS: Does this courageous man's example make the gigantic award made to a civilian typist, employed by the RAF, for so-called repetitive strain injury even more outrageous?
