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:

  3. whats one of those
     
  4. The British Berlin Brigade formation flash was the old 'Flaming Ar***ole' - least it was when I was there. The 'Bear' was on the side of the city buses.
     
  5. we definatley had a red bear flash on our uniform i was in the royal engineers at smuts bks
     
  6. Have tried to attach a photo but for some reason it will not go. The photo is of a black bear within a red circle and was on the cover of the Berlin Buletin. This is the only place I have seen a bear on anything from Berlin Brigade. There was a red flash, a red circle with Berlin at the top of the circle on the outer rim if I remember rightly.

  9. No Bear sapper - just the 'Flaming Ar**hole' depicted by para_medic. Too many Schultheiss mucker!
     
  10. no mate i can honestly say im right its the one thing i do remember because
    when i got posted back to england an officer told me to remove it, but the RSM says no he has served in berlin and he can still wear it. when i find one ill let you know.
     
  11. Sapper, take a look back up the page, I have placed a photo of a bear there, is that it?

  12. Para_Medic, I mentioned the Berlin Bulletin earlier but decided not to go down that road, since you done it I may as well say that if anyone wants a copy from the time of the fall of the Wall I can let them have it in pdf format, problem is it comes to 83Mb, probably too large.
