Equipment thefts

Discussion in 'Gunners' started by goatbagthedruid, Apr 12, 2011.

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. Wonder if that includes the 100 odd pair of boots two enterprising chaps swiped and shifted on ebay. A Sgt and full screw bust for less than £1000 a piece.
  2. Labour MP dishing dirt on MOD/Forces.

    Any particular reason or just the incessant chipping away at an organisation they despise

    She is a Liverpool MP and therefore should be qualified to comment on thieving I suppose
  3. An in true media stylee, article leads with a phot of some seriously cool techo gear

    An all terrain terrestrial Remote Controlled Vehicle (RCV), fitted with a camera unit produced by Robosynthesis

    Which has not been mentioned in the article, has not been stolen, in fact has nowt to do woth the article at all...but leads the punter to believe.....

    they couid have posted a picture of a goldfish and it would have had similer relevance
  4. Has it actually been robbed, or has a lot of it just been mislaid? I know a lot of people will think how the hell do you lose a Bedford or an airframe? But stranger things do happen.

    £30,000 worth of clothing, does it say it was lost in a oner? Think about it, 5 or complete issues including ECBA could easily top 30k especially for the prices the MOD pays for things! I'm pretty sure I remember being billed about £11 for a pair of socks in Deutschland, at those sort of prices 30k is **** all.
  5. According to the MP the kit stolen was sufficient to launch a 'small coup'. Having considered those items that were apperently nicked I can only presume that any prospective coup would not only be small but short lived and utter shite.
  6. And probably lead by some bloke called Lemuel Gulliver??
  7. Ahh, Swift & Bold eh.
  8. The real crime is the Labour MP who is on good terms with one of Blairs offsprings had nothing to do with merseyside until parachuted into safe Labour seat by Labour head office.
  9. Good one journo!
  10. £30,00 quids worth of clothing ?, that must have been one hell of a drying room..
