Battle of Crete

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by johno123, Oct 14, 2008.

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. I would like to talk with anyone who has info regarding the Battle of Crete
    tours.
     
  2. The Brits won, mate. They got one of their number to rise very early and cover all the sun-beds with their towels before the Boxheeds even got up that morning.

    Hope this helps.

    A suggestion would be that if your original post had contained slightly more information you may have got more answers along the lines of what you're looking for.
