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. Has anyone 'up the blue' got the latest on this? Have they returned , or are they still not co-operating?
  2. when did they actually start co-operating with us? :roll:
  3. *Guffaw* GPWM.

    Ok, Are Basra council still co-operating with us even less than before?
  4. sorry but i remember the extreme reluctance of all the local councillors and police officers to show any willingness to co-operate with us during Telic 2. I am still very cynical about how much their "co-operation" is worth?
  5. On telic 3 they sent an rsm round with a bunch of blokes to motivate the bin men to actually collect the rubbish instead of just driving round in their new dust carts .The council seemed to give officers lots of meetings to go to but acheive even less than the cpa .Has anyone noticed in basra .
  6. we had to use a lot of "encouragement" to get the police out of their stations and the electric engineers out to fix broken pylons etc.

    almost seemed as if no-one wanted to work ...apart from the firemen for some strange reason. they loved going out on shouts :)
