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. Sad news for Gunnery Types.

    Great man - sad loss.
  3. Remember him well. RIP Ron.
  4. My OC in G Sqn 4 RTR, great guy, down to earth and no messing, remember him at Hohne once quizzing the Gunnery Wing about "gun memory" then destroying their theories. If there is a ten pin bowling team in heaven
    Ron will be in it.
  5. Presumably he of the Aquilina trainer fame? Never met the gentleman but many happy hour on the trainer; good bit of kit.
  6. Yup. AS TARA said, you couldn't meet a more straightforward guy. I'd forgotten about the bowling btw.
  7. A legend in the RAC, even to us who aren't gunnery gods.

    RIP Ron.
  8. Ron Aquilina's Funeral 1400hrs Thursday 22 January Efford Crematorium Efford Road Plymouth PL3 6NG
  9. As stated many happy hours playing with laser lights, it made life on CIM better enabaling us to get rid of stupid No6 Bracket.

  10. Fantasic Bloke.

  11. RIP Ron as previously stated an RAC legend.
