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. My son is doing a school project on WWI so seeing the above site was useful, it got me thinking, there can't be many veterans from the Great War left alive, their avearge age must be in the 90's and within ten years I would guess there will be none left. If any MOD / Govt bods do traul this site please take note PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE LAST COMMONWEALTH PARTICIPANT GETS A STATE FUNERAL........I dont care what the rule book says on these things, whether the individual was in the front line or a support soldier, a Pte or Col, male or female, Indian Sth African, British, Canadian or whatever it makes no difference start planning for it.

    Just a thought
  2. A good site and some interesting perspectives 8)

    Nice idea but the veterans I remember don't like all that fuss...

    Nice thought Egg, and a good point from Mr Happy, the ones I had the honour in meeting were quite unassuming. But something should be done. It will a passing of a special person. I remember the last Boer War veteran, a Canadian I believe, passing away.
