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. Just read in this months crafty about the sad passing of WO2 Steve Cook. This guy trained me at Pirbright and was an absolute legend. If there were a few more RS types like this then we would be a lot better off as a Corp.

  2. RIP Cookie.

    Fond memories of some cracking nights in the Detmold Naafi Bop!

    Arte et Marte.
  3. I knew cookie from 7BN, spoke to one of the guys down there, and cookie decided to have a proper dine out when he realised it was all over. Wheeled in oxygen and all, what a top guy.
    Sadly he left the dinner early and was wheeled out with "you were always on my mind" played on a fiddle without a dry eye anywhere. He was a great bloke who went easy on the plastic RS wannabe (me). Karaoke just got notched up a level upstairs!!
  4. A good pal of mine....he was Corps through and through....said my goodbye to him a week before he fell out, brilliant Soldier until the end.
  5. A quality bloke who I thoroughly enjoyed working with. I was not aware he was unwell, but I'm so glad he made it to CSM.

  6. Just logged onto Armynet to take a look. I remember Cookie for the days of old. He was a top boke. Always having a laugh, and a professional through and through.

    One of the few DS/RS that I actually got on with.
