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. Pass a few cemetries etc with work and see the portland stone ones standing there but I've also seen a few granite ones. And any idea as to why some stones have the capbadge in the center of the cross and not above it RA seems to spring to mind :?
  2. Most of the Portland stone ones are placed there by CWGC and they have the badges and inscriptions put on them. The granite ones could be private ones.

    Any Holts battlefied tour books give a short explaination.
