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:


    I'm curiious how he would be thanked in the UK in 2019?
  2. He'd be met by apathetic customs officials, be allowed into the country without a visa - or he could claim asylum. He'd be greeted with benefits from our taxes, a council house and before he'd walked 30m he'd be done over by a hoody and charged by the police for bruising said hoody's knuckles. Why would any foreigner want to spy for us anymore?
  3. he knew the risk involved. What did he expect, MI6 to persuade the Russian Justice system to let him go!!!!!
  4. Taking into account this story, unlikely that many would be British spies.

    By contrast

    93 years. No so bad, taking into account that espionage is very nervous profession.
