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. Like many in Northern Ireland I am dismayed to discover that a young multiple amputee , Andy Allen, who was severely in Afghanistan has been forced to set up his own Charity Home - AAVSNI to raise funds to build a rehabilitation and respite centre for injured Ex Servicemen living in Northern Ireland. In media articles he relates how he has been forced down this road as no other organisation will fund this. Am I missing something here, is this not the remit of Help For Heroes and should they and Legion not be funding this rehabilitation centre? It seems so unfair that a severely injured young man is forced to struggle to raise this money, particularly so when Help For Heroes openly used his profile to promote their own fundraisng.

  2. Have you considered asking H4H, or the RBL this question?
