Empire Warriors

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. I have just seen a dvd called Empire Warriors advertised. It is a BBC series about the retreat from Empire, Aden etc. Can anyone remember this being on, or is it a cheeky pre-release to a new series?
     
  2. BBC Mini Series 2004 apparently. Try Google - amusingly the top link is to this very website.
     
  3. No mate, it was on about a year ago if i remember correctly.Top class programme. The first one focuses on Col 'mad mitch' Mitchel from the Argyle and suths in Aden. Top class viewing. A little bit sorrowing knowing that you are looking at the downfall of our place at the top table in world affairs but portrays the people who stillhad the bollox to make sure we went with a bang. Rule Brittania.
     
  4. I bought the series on Friday (for a bit of post operative non porn related recovery) and found it bloody excellent. As a copper I loved the old school SB and colonial police types, especially the bloke who had been Churchill's protection officer and asking him for career advice was told to go to Malaya "I could see he was thinking back to Indija, and before!!!"as they needed good old bill, so he did.

    Its out on DVD, get it.
