Col Tim Collins question. Need help to settle bun fight.

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by THESUNJOCK, Aug 15, 2005.

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. When having one or two at the local beer testing station. The topic of Col Tim Collins came up. A little bun fight ensured after one put it to the forum that Tim Collins took legal action against the Press when the accusations that were still being investigated were made in a paper. Is this true? I don't remember this happening and did he win?

  2. Can't remember where I read it but I think he did take them on and won. But don't quote me. There is a discussion on this in the officers forum, or try the Times web page, I think it was there that I read it.
  3. Yes, Col. Collins received substantial damages.

    It's covered in his book, which is a good read in my humble.

  4. OK, I lost the bet. thanks. I will never drink again.
