War hero robbed at knifepoint by thugs

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. A WAR hero who fought in the D-Day landings was targeted by masked robbers who held a knife to his throat and threatened to kill him.

    Percy Darlington, aged 89, had returned home after visiting his wife’s grave and was sitting in his living room when he was grabbed by the neck from behind and a knife was held to his throat.

    Mr Darlington, of Manchester Road, Kearsley, said: “I could only see his eyes and mouth — he had a knife and he was pointing it at my throat.

    “He just kept saying, ‘where’s the money, where’s the money’, and he would jab the knife at my throat each time.”

    The terrifying incident happened just after 7pm on Tuesday. Police believe the two men may have entered the house through an unlocked door.

    As Mr Darlington, a former Desert Rat in the Seventh Armoured Division, was held at knifepoint by one of the raiders, the second ransacked his home looking for cash.

  2. Outrage bus is signed out, all aboard.
     
  3. What sort of scum would attack an eighty nine year old person? :x
     
  4. A cowardly, worthless piece of sh1t basso, don't think anyone'll mind firing up the outrage bus here...
     
  5. You answered your own question. Scum would.
     
  6. If the Royal Hospital Chelsea has a Guardroom, these cnuts should be locked up in it. It would give the Old & the Bold something to fill the long dark evenings with.

    "Fancy a hand of crib after dinner, Harry?"

    "No tah Sid, I'm off to the Guardroom in introduce them cnuts to my collection of rusty bayonets"

    "Room for another?"
     
  7. The sort of scum who need arresting and thrown in jail for a whole load of years.

    And dry bummed in the showers with monotonous regularity.
     
  8. The majority of British People have only got themselves to blame for this mess by voting in a Government of Champagne Socialists - a social elite who live in a separate society where they are shielded morally and physically from the people they purport to protect but secretly despise.

    In the eyes of the Labour Government the thugs who carried out this attack are victims of a Conservative created underclass who are not responsible for their own actions.

    Littlejohn, Clarkson and Gaunt for a coalition government now!
     
  9. Forget the bus just deploy a sniper team to the estate.
     
  10. I would suggest putting them in the stocks.

    In Canal Street, Manchester.

  15. They should cut every one of these twat's fingers off, before sending them to a highly unpleasant prison. Then they can't help but drop the soap in the shower (and suffer the results).
