Bullets, bandages, and boots BBC 4

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. There's a three parter on logistics on Weds 11/4 @ 01:00hrs on BBC 4 should be interesting.
  2. Will it be sexy?
  3. I watched it when first on BBC 2 a month or two ago and found it very interesting.

    Nice to see things from a different perspective.

  4. Yes, an interesting programme but not without a couple of 'howlers' that made me shout at the TV screen, much to the surprise of the hitherto unalerted person sharing the sofa!

    And, arrgghhh, the feckin' man made several uses of the word 'logistical', except that it is NOT a ******* word! 'Logistic' will do.

    Sorry, another pet hate.

    From the soapbox.... dismount.

  5. He also seemed to have gone to the same BBC elocution school as Robert Peston - talking as if he were reading off a script that contained no punctuation.

    It is according to OED. An adjective of logistics.

  7. This the same OED that uses 'Sick' to sound all relevant and trendy?
  8. I only managed to catch half of the programme last night but certainly worthy of watching the whole series.

    The old fashion rations & the huge leg splinter made interesting viewing
