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. Bloody Hell.. Maggie Thatcher's kid the eminence gris behind the failed attempt to overthrow thegovernment of Equatorial Guinea??..

    I recall the story of the mercs getting busted at an airport and being hauled off...but, it seems that Sir Mark Thatcher [ how'd he earn a ' title'? ] dug into his pocket - ok - allegedly -since he's entered no plea and the arresting forces haven't pressed charges - for some $ 360,000 US to cover ' incidentals' like bullets, guns.. etc..

    Sir Mark's defenders claim he was merely investing in the purchase of some military helicopters for a mining venture...a normal business venture...ooookay...

    this would have nothing to do with the fact that he made $ 20 million in ' commissiions' on arms sales to Saudi Arabia in 1994 when Mom was running the show in the UK...

    So, I guess E-Guinea President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo can sleep peacefully at night once again...
