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. Done and done. All that and a Trojan too- outstanding.

    Done - thanks for posting Phil.... a true Cornishman !
     
  3. Larger than life...what an immense chartacter he must have been.
     
  4. An exceptional man - thanks for the prompt, Phil.
     
  5. Is there any possibilty Rick Rescorla can get the George Cross?
     
  6. According to what I understand from this site :http://www.gc-database.co.uk/decoration.htm
    - No, as he wasn't a subject of the UK, Dependent Territories or Commonwealth...
    But they ought to give him the other medal - surely serious lobbying by Morgan Stanley should help, shouldn't it?

    I am not aware that under English law he could give up his citizenship, hence he would be eligable.
     
  8. Done, truly deserved.

    I hope they get the movie right; I'd like to see that.
     
  9. Job done, its deserved
     
  10. As a Cornishman, I wrote to Andrew George (MP for St Ives) who was attempting to get recognition for Rick Rescorla. He replied to thank me for my letter & assured me he would continue to press for the award of some decoration or acxknowledgement.

    KERNOW BYS VYKEN!
     
  11. Sorted. And the missus.
    Great guy, Rick.
