Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    Furthermore on their 'yellow card' the paragraph on 'use of military force to fulfil the mission' will be moved to the slot before 'use of military force in self-defence' thus making it more significant blablabla
    - but I am sure that our resident germanophile is translating this properly as we type... over to you, Bugsy :wink:
