Army Rumour Service
Socks are exciting things. I actually look forward to getting them for Christmas. Not the crappy Asda specials mind you. No, no. If it's going to be socks, it had better be dogs balls socks.
Check out the review - there's a Brucey Bonus at the end for you all to make the most of your Christmas money, and as I completely forgot, a competition to win one pair of each set of socks. All you have to do is go to the competition thread HERE.
The Ministry of Defence has quietly paid a “significant sum” to a former artillery gunner who claims his career was destroyed after taking Lariam, a controversial anti-malarial drug.
The settlement is believed to be the first of its kind in Britain and was made weeks before an expected court case. Hundreds more former soldiers could sue the MoD at a cost of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money.
Lariam — which has been linked to depression, hallucinations and panic attacks — was given to 17,368 military personnel between April 2007 and March 2015. A parliamentary inquiry in 2016 criticised the MoD over the way it issued the drug.
It’s not uncommon for arrsers to come out with “I’m in Timbuktu for the weekend any recommends for things to see and do?” That I thought I’d start a places to go and things to do thread.... Following up with an Arrse score what recommendations have you got?
This weekend I went to the Dads Army museum in Thetford.....
Quite good, bit heavy on scripts and photos, but nice and chintzy with a lovely war time cafe.
Arrse Score? 8/10 Would I go again? Yes
