Battle of Arnhem: Tour of Duty [8.00 PM] 10.11.2010

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Devon_Walker, Nov 10, 2010.

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. Agreed, hope it's not just a bit of WW2 kit porn.
  2. What a great experience for the young men, a lovely idea for a programme and educational too. One of the veterans interviewed has recently published his autobiography, DROPPED IN IT by Colin Hall on Amazon as ebook, out in paperback in 1 or 2 weeks.
  3. 1st point, err when were girls in the Para's, 2nd point they seem to belong to the ANA beret brigade!!!!

  4. Who's the daft old ex-Para with foreign wings above each breast pocket. Fucking walter mitty cunt.
  5. That made me chuckle, a lot.:)
  6. Is this another attempt to see if todays youth's can do what their Grandfather's did? If so why is it a documentary thing when we could just have news from Afghanistan, where some of todays youth are actually doing it?

    Edited to add that it looks like another weekend in the field with cadets... :)
  7. I turned the telly on to watch this and thought bloody hell they're really going for it- the street fighting looked quite gung-ho. But for some reason they've got coppers representing 1st AB Div and a load of whining student twats representing the Hun.
  8. Where on earth did they get that many Denison Smocks? None have been made for years and they go for a pretty price on ebay these days.
  9. I take it they mean Battalion not Brigade, if this programme is meant to Honour the Airborne, it fecking aint. One guys got 4 different Para wings up??
  10. They were 1,2,3 etc Para Brigade in 1944.

    Have they called anyone a hat yet?
  13. APJI wings are worn on the right arm. He's a fucking chubb.
  14. Yes the daft old cunt did when referring to how one of the little idiots was wearing his beret. Even though the old nonce wears his beret like a fucking Afghan!
