DSEi - 13 to 16 Sep 05

#1
The Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEi) exhibition is being held in London next week.

Anybody else going and on what day?

I will be wearing my new ARRSE tie, for recognition purposes, on Thurs 15th.

Make sure you go all covert. The lesbians by the front door will be dying to chuck red paint at you (if my recollection of 2, 4 & 6 years ago are anything to go by). Can't make it this year though.

new to this site - am off to the exhibition, but not sure what to expect to be honest. Any hints of areas to avoid or is it useful just to have a general bimble?

General bimble I think, fully intend to act as a military tourist for the whole day.

Don't use the DLR if you can avoid it - the antis generally are successful at blocking it. Check www.desi.org - its the antis' site and always helps with what they're planning. Just watch out for the independents, who do the red paint, bicycles on the line etc.

Don't buy drinks from Excel, they're a rip off. Chat up some bored stand manner on one of the big stands - they generally have booze.

Check out the Italian and French stands - they're useually the best for top quality totty

sounds good, will show up and act like dirty civy i am.

Will be there with the rest of the muppets from work, (Tuesday is MOD & guests, exhibitors' guests and overseas, I believe) however I will be trying to ditch the embarassing ones soonest and trying to smooch up to various contractors for some hospitality. Unfortunately I have not yet ordered ny tie and it would not arrive in time now.

Went by train 2 years ago - nightmare as some fool chained himself to the DLR; naturally the police were not foresighted enought o have bolt-cutters etc to hand.

I got called a baby-killer though!
