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. Although the citation reads PWRR, Cpl Bakas was serving with the RRV's Roebuck Coy on TELIC 6 at the time. C (PWRR) Coy has since joined 3 PWRR.

    The riot in question was the infamous Warrior-burning incident outside the Jarmeat Police Station. Cpl Bakas went forward and rescued a gunner who had been dragged off the back of the Warrior and into the clutches of the rioters and back to safety in spite of being stoned by the crowd.

    Blöödy well done Corporal Bakas!

  2. Fcuking Good drills! That takes some balls!
  3. Well done!

  7. Good man.

  8. Oops! :oops:

    Well the trouble with you heavy types is that you have no tradition of individual appearance so with those buzzcuts you all look the same to us jackets! :D

    Doesn't detract from what he did though.
