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. [align=left] Todays' breaking news
    A Royal Air Force official spokesman said.... 'Bastards' ! :oops:
  2. Not true, Helen Sharman went up in a Soyuz, 1992.

    They've never been very good at navigating, those AAC guys, have they?!?!

    Oi - they're iiiin the sssaaaaaaaannd! They, they ain't helping very much are they dad?
  4. PT - 4 of the 6 were US citizens and 1 was a dual national! All went up in either US or Russian spacecraft. Hardly a great patriotic achievement for us, I would think.
  5. There was another AAC officer - Tim Mace who made it to the starting line as well.
  6. Thanks for the correction, but that was USSR space mission -- I should have said 'with the US space programme :oops: (Still must have narked 'em )
  7. Would that not make her a "Cosmonaut"? (ie she likes to read Cosmo :D )
  8. Did she go down as well?
  9. You know when us Brits get all upset by Hollywood movies underplay UK contributions to e.g. WW2 (U571, SPR, etc). Does that entitle us to get all patriotic when a British-born (but US citizen) goes into space (on a US or Russian spaceship) to a (US/Russian/others except UK) spacestation?

    I remember the BBC news fawning over Sellers and Foale like they were some great British heroes, that's all.
  10. Not as good as Laurel Clark, she was well hot!
  11. Proud Brits Foale:[​IMG] and Sellars: [​IMG]
  12. Comrade Helen Sharman


    Nice Union Flag.
  13. But BIIIG. Very eighties.

    Did that spacesuit have shoulder pads?
