Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Found this story and it made me feel that some people have their prioities right.

    VC Story

    The VC is more than money.
  2. Good for him. Can anyone imagine Pte Beharry VC selling his?

    PS ... RAMC - only part of the armed forces to have VC and bars :). (31 awarded to 29 people!).
  3. Well done. He is obviously made of the same stuff as his father. A brave proud man in his own way.
  4. did you read the bit about the guy climbing onto the wing of his lancaster at 20,000ft to put out a fire? jesus.
  5. I've read about that. That's scary.

    Dodger - yes, Chavasse is the name one of the recruit troops at Keogh were traditionally given.

    As for the Indian chap who needs money to be able to treat his child - do you think this is something we might endeavour to help with? Just an idea.
  6. Nice article to read, much credit to the guy for not selling out on his father's memory.
  7. Not half

    what about the bloke who went into the casing of a sub to defuse a bomb in the knowledge that the CO might have to dive at any moment. Hats off all round, and also to this family who realise some things cannot be bought
  8. What a story to show an example of unselfishness.
  9. Was Charlie Upham a medic??

    Chavasse was the name given to one of the Apprentice College Houses, as was Martin-Leake and Harden.
  11. Just shows that some things are worth more than money, good on him and his family.

  12. A whip-round, anyone?
  13. Remarkable. The upstanding manner we are less used to in our own lives.
  14. k613 - Charlie Upham wasn't a medic. He was (IIRC) Canterbury Regiment, New Zealand Expeditionary Force.
