Please Consider Signing This Petition

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. We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Change the
    rules regarding Ramp Ceremonies for HM Forces Personnel killed
    by an act of terror, while in the Service of Her Majesty the
    Queen

    The bodies of the soldiers Murdered in Northern Ireland were
    flown home without ceremony. This has angered members of HM
    Forces: "British troops have spoken of their anger following
    the disclosure that the bodies of the two soldiers murdered by
    dissident republicans were shipped back to the UK as freight."

    "We have been told that the soldiers were not allowed to have a
    ramp service because of political reasons. We were told the
    Government didn't want anything that would look like the
    Troubles had restarted.

    "As far as we are concerned these soldiers were shot dead in
    uniform by terrorists and they should be treated in exactly the
    same way as if they were killed in Afghanistan. To send their
    bodies back to the UK as freight is outrageous."

    When a person joins any branch of HM Forces they are
    effectively on duty 24/7/365.

    The Government are asked to review the crass rules that allowed
    this to happen.

    The Government are further requested to amend the rules on Ramp
    Ceremonies.

  8. A few months ago Cyclops Brown said he had nothing but respect for the Armed Forces and some quick-witted wag on here replied 'shame that's all he's got' (or similar). Now that fcuking lying slack-jawed pr1ck's proved himself a liar once more. Shame on him. Son of the minister, I hope he enjoys purgatory.

    it's about time the government stops shying away from everything and stood up for itself and the country it reprisents, whilst Thatcher did a number of memorabley bad things, she would of however stood by us and not let us get trampled all over just for the sake of others feelings.
     
  13. I rather think it's got more to do with tight-fistedness, this time. That, or their ingrained hatred of the military.
