Daily Mail (who else)

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. Quote from yesterday's Daily Mail's Poppy Outrage story.

    I can easily understand less than 100% accuracy in regimental names, but could Royal Worcester be the original 'falling plates'?

    Did they have a Doulton as sub-editor yesterday? Should he be fired?

    I think the Daily Mail have a bit of a sauce, printing that sort of story. I also wonder what would Sir Roderick Spode make of this?

    gotta love the Mail at times, always eager to use the mistakes of others as a club to beat them over the head with, buuuut when it comes to their own the become extra-ordinarily closed mouthed.

    Remember the outrage article they printed regarding the BBC using an image Airacobras in a series of webpages about the Battle of Britain, the Mail's own article and picture captions included a multiple of ridiculous mistakes including the dates of the war as a whole and that the Hawker Hurricane was of the same family as the Supermarine Spitfire.
  4. he'd probably have a desire to wedge wood up the sub-editor's spout
  5. That was pretty bone, china.
  6. They've now changed it to;

    Wouldn't risk getting it wrong again by correcting it to The Worcestershire Regiment, though!
  7. Wasn't Gordo Broon praising the Royal Anglicans about a year ago ?
  8. Now the papers have forgotten her and she's had her 5 mins of fame,
    here's a demo of Harriet's modelling talents;

    Harriet in and out of uniform
  9. TV pet-rescue presenter last week referred to a 'Lance Colonel of Horse'. What ever happened to 'Researchers'?

    Not the out of uniform I was hoping for :evil:
  12. But maybe not with Hollisters though,

    I now think this was a put-up job- a shop has a strict uniform policy (which they are quite entitled to have) which doesn't allow brooches, watches, jewellery- It's not rocket science to twig there was likely to be an issue with a poppy and to force a confrontation.

    Of course, it's regretable when a firm doesn't give permission to wear a poppy but it's far worse if an employee is demeaning the whole poppy ethos by using for their own agenda.
