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. Oh that's sad he made history interesting. Anyone have him in the dead pool?
  2. ******* hell how many times has he died, there are at least three threads on him so far.

    Which no doubt proves that Prof Holmes research was far better than the thread starters
  4. Just got this in a bulletin from RHQ:

    An open Memorial Service will be held at 1430hrs on 8 June 2011 at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst Chapel. All are welcome to attend to celebrate Richard’s life.
  5. Just in from RHQ:

    Or alternatively - say bollox to that and let the Chapel Square be filled from wall-to-wall with respectful farewell-sayers? There won't be many other officers of his generation - ARAB or STAB - to get that kind of a send off.
  6. Loved it when he was doing WW1 on site and he turned up mounted.
