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. And they've only just figured that out??! I thought this had been the plan for ages, why move the goalposts at this late stage?
     
  2. Correct Jon - we don't need them.

    Apologies if this appears rather narrow-minded. I'm afraid my experience of the Dutch has rather soured me towards them.
     
  3. Frikadellen eating surender monkeys.
     
  4. Why is that?
     
  5. I always heard they had a pretty good reputation in Britfor (as a result of the UK/NL Task Group experience).

    Dutch Marines = VERY good guys. All speak perfect English (beter than our Troops), well trained, equipped (LR WMIKS with .50" - Mmmmm...) and motivated. They train all the time with our Fishheads.

    Dutch Army = Srebreniza = a normal Euro Armed Youth Movement.

    Net result - they can deploy good quality Troops, but only until they run out of KM, then they are buggered.
