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. A HERO Scots soldier was stabbed to death yesterday as he tried to save a taxi driver.

    Scots Guardsman Paul McGee - decorated for bravery in Iraq - died outside his mum's home as he tried to calm an argument between the cabbie and another driver.

    A second man got out of the car and knifed hero Paul, 28, in front of horrified onlookers in Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire.

    He died a year after winning the Queen's Commendation for Bravery for risking his life to rescue another soldier.

  2. RIP, Thoughts to his family.

    Sorry if this is outrage bus material but FFS when are we going to get a grip on these ********* that think it is OK to do this. Surely the death penalty must be brought back.
     
  3. I would have been proud to have known Paul.

    RIP fella.
     
  4. He will be missed by all who served beside him. RIP Paul.
     
  5. He survived all that Iraq could throw at him and was murdered on the streets of Scotland. What does that say about the state of the UK?

    RIP

  6. Looks like they got the scum

    Scum
     
  7. Rest in Peace soldier x
     
  8. This news has ruined my day.

    They say 1 in 10 inside are ex forces. Lets hope this piece of shite meets some.
     
  9. Shocking, but unsurprising.
    RIP.
     
  10. This is a terribly sad and recently repeated example of someone who gives a sh1t about society/their community/environment being killed because of some worthless ne'er-do-well. Gdsmn McGee was obviously trying to do the right thing but unfortunately he didn't bargain on someone deciding to involve themselves using lethal force in what will no doubt turn out to have been a trivial cause.

    We'll not get the death penalty back, as long as any human rights lawyers exist and the EU lurks in the judicial background. What we should be holding out for is a life sentence, with no possibility of parole for those who kill policemen, public servants in the course of their duty e.g. traffic wardens, bus-drivers etc, soldiers and people trying to support the rule of law. However there is very little chance that this would fly - because the human rights lawyers would jump on that wagion too.
     
  11. As brave off duty as he was on duty... one of Scotlands finest lost.

    What is happening to the UK?
     
  12. ..and this is Lochwinnoch. A bird sanctuary with some houses attached to it. The kind of place Glasgow's cops stay.
     
  13. RIP and condolences. A sad, pointless loss.
