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. Just saw this bloke (walt) on the sky news website. Bitching about glowing in the dark or some shit but was really curious about the medals he had on display. Being a sad git i did some
    research and found out they are all commemorative walting medals.

  2. Interesting badge on the blue cloth the fat sapper is holding - is anyone allowed to use the Queen's Crown on unofficial emblems without permission?

    Meanwhile, our friend with the made up bling seems to be enveloped in a large bin liner.
  3. This guy came up on the radar before and if memory serves, an ARRSE reader identified it as a Royal Humane Society Lifesaving award of a vintage that this chap could not possibly have earned.

    He is an ill person walt I guess, witnessed testing in '57-58 - 54 years ago, must be well into his 70's now and has not had the decency to contract an obscure form of cancer to prove his case.....

  8. He claims the exposure made him diabetic IIRC.
  9. Great site i now qualify for another 16 medals so surely i out rank you and as such it should be you wheeling me!
  10. I believe he's qualified because he is actually from Spalding.

    I agree with Bigeye. I think 'bling' medals are a bit sad but he's not pretending to be anything he isn't. I'm not sure how campaigning for compensation for something he thinks has made him ill is 'walting'.

    I met an old boy on Sunday who got an MM at El Alemein. He also had a commemorative Dunkirk Medal and various other badges. Does that make him a 'walt'?
  13. And on the wrong side too!
  14. Actually that was a bit remiss of the blighter. The dreadful old bluffer's clearly disrespecting 'genuine' thyroid cancer victims the World over.
