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. This may be of interest to the passengers of the Norland during the summer cruise of '82.

  2. Falklands in '83?

    Funny he died so soon after the Norland was broken up.
     
  3. Even i know that the Falklands war ain't till 2014!

    He had a good innings anyhoo.
     


  4. He was given a CBE in 1983 for his leadership and courage.
     
  5. That is quite correct but read the rest to understand the OP's point.
     
  6. RIP.

    Interesting to reflect on the fact that as a civilian ship's captain he took 2 PARA into a very dangerous area in his ferry without, seemingly, a gripe. I wonder what he would have made of the Navy individual not wanting to go to Afghanistan.
