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 way to go, but I gather that he was a generally good bloke who put a lot of the money he made with Hesco back into local industry, charity and so on. I always thought that the Segway was up there with the Sinclair C5 as a useless bit of technology, though.
     
  2. I've of the belief that a third wheel would have done the trick, instead of hundreds of internal motors.
     
  3. A stupid looking machine (I have seen the Rome Police patrolling on them and they looked very embarrassed) but this guy was quite a big donator to Help for Heroes.

    It's a shame, seems like Mr Heselden OBE was one of the good guys.
     
  4. Segway Mk II, built in airbag and parachute, and a elf 'n' safty notice warning "NOT TO USED NEAR CLIFFS".

  5. Linky.

    Seems like he was a very nice guy.
     
  6. Like I always say, live by the segway, die by the segway. I think there is a lesson for all of us in this.
