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. WWI veteran honoured by home town:

    Well done Mr Allingham

    I sure hope that he enjoyed the day and that bottle of malt.

    "Mr Allingham said the whisky, along with "cigarettes and wild, wild women", was the secret of his long life. " :wink:

    I can only hope to be half the person he is.
  2. this is the type of thing that puts a smile on my face for the rest of the day.

    good on ya Mr Allingham. :D
  3. Nice one Henry . Hope he had a cracking day and a cracking night with that bottle of malt .
  4. Well done Eastbourne and well done Henry

    Thoroughly deserved.
  5. Eastbourne should be honoured that such a gentleman choses to reside there. :)
    He's a breed apart from the widespread scum souring the values and littering the very land that Mr Allingham and his generation fought so valiantly for....... :twisted: [stops before full blown rant ensues]
