25 Flt to come home?

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. Just pulled myself from the rumour mill. Is the last sunshine posting really coming home? Batus fallen through? Kenya on the cards? Spoken to an engineer from hanger 3 few weeks back, they've been told to start clearing room for 3X Bell 212. That we can live with, but no more Rauls/Sinbin trips? Well thats just cruel....
  2. Sad.....I really enjoyed Belize, how come BATUS fell through?
  3. I thought BATUS was staying for the Corps, in fact I thought it was have a cash injection to support various PDT's?
  4. Long and short of it:

    25 Flt 212s wanted to go to BATUS
    Canadians weren't terribly happy with a UK contract company 'muscling in' on a potential Canadian area (Mustang Heli..)
    212s waiting for a home or use
    Kenya is a possibility....
  5. heard thru a number of contacts (mil & civi) that they are going to wallop as an indpendent flt then tasking out to kenya, poland etc when & where required

    still offically a rumor but these contacts seem very certain
