Public Appreciation

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. Went to the Forest v Swansea match tonight. At half time 250 men of the Mercians just back from the stan paraded around the pitch to a standing ovation from 21,000 fans. Nice touch I thought. When they parade through Nottingham a few weeks back, 10,000 lined the streets.

    Maybe public appreciation is on the up! (or it could be just be in Nottingham) :D
     
  2. Not much happens in Nottingham then?
     
  3. It's not the first time that the good people of Nottingham have been please to welcome soldiers returning from the middle east.
