CIMIC House: 1 PWRR action

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by Bravo_Bravo, Feb 14, 2006.

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. Can somebody direct me to an AAR/report for this action?

    Just been discussing recent events ( eg, the small riot with Iraqis etting filed in ) with a civvie colleague, who had not heard the name...

    TIA
     
  2. Can't help you with the AAR but Andy chittock was there as the War correspondent and he has film on his site here

    www.echoesofwar.co.uk (not sure how you turn it into link)

    hope it helps get your point across.

    edited because I now know how to link - yipee
     
  3. Cheers matey - m'colleague has seen the ( alleged) 1LI video and fails to see what all the fuss is about - he is of the view that if you lob rocks and grenades at squaddies you are lucky to get away with a kicking if they catch you.

  4. That seems to be a very pervasive attitude. Problem is that it is not one likely to be shared by the locals who use it as another justification for being bstards. The brass may understand the attitude but are held to act in accordance with the law. The beating they got was unlawful. All that happens is the squaddy with the stick gets done and no one has really benefitted.
     
  5. If you find yourself a copy of the 2004 Infantryman (the white one), or whatever that tomb of knowledge is called, it contains about 25 pages detailing how much fun the PWRR had including a bit on Cimic house.
