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. I'll say he was unsuccessful, he couldn't even top himself.

    I also suspect that the FP Coy boss will be in the brown and smelly.
  2. Sky news ticker says 1 x UK soldier wounded.

    Hope it's not too serious for our guy.

  5. Hmmmm, so, who to believe, Sky - the plaything of the Murdochs? Or the BBC, plaything of the Left Wing?

    What a dilemma, eh?
  6. I liked this pic and comment best.

  8. Isn't it the SAS or some other special forces unit? I forget who,

    The bloke has now died, in Bastion, of his burns. If he wanted to top himself, there are probably less painful ways to do it than setting yourself on fire. Still, his choice.

    The impressive thing to me was - that the Yanks didn't riddle him with bullets first. This indicates that he got nowherenear anyone even vaguely important. The Secret Service would have slotted him, otherwise :)
  10. Probably a bog standard Yank Inf Unit.
  11. I assume with our current administration's disdain for all things military ( and especially that post-modern social experiment f/k/a the USMC. ---see the new kinder and gentler recruiting pitch http://m.timesonline.com/mobile/news/national/new-ads-pitch-marine-corps-kinder-gentler-side/article_f281ce97-7f4b-58e3-bc06-45e3673bc5d1.html
    ) your question is rhetorical.
  12. I hope he had a koran with him, in the burning wagon that is......
