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. First I read this:

    Army medic L/Cpl Abbie Martin, meanwhile, has been awarded the Queen's Commendation for Valuable Service after running across open ground while under fire to treat a dying comrade.


    Then there was this:
    Soldier and medic who saved his life to receive Military Cross - British Army Website
    A soldier who led the assault after being seriously injured in a Taliban ambush and the medic who saved his life have been awarded the Military Cross (MC).

    Lieutenant John Scarlett, of the Coldstream Guards, led his Police Advisory Team to visit an Afghan National Civil Police check point (CP) in the Upper Gereshk Valley. He was joined by Lance Corporal Stephen Shaw, a Combat Medical Technician with the Royal Army Medical Corps.

    How amazing are our medics all of them:

  3. Scablifters, if you will endulge a passing ARRSER into your forum, to doff his cap at your fantastic medics and their well deserved awards and decorations.
