Gulfside Internet access

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. Just a quick question(s) as regards communications kebabside back to UK

    1. Is there still a comms blackout in force as regards mobiles and internet access?

    2. If there is locally available Internet access, are the troops allowed to use it?


  2. I have been receiving and sending emails to an SO1 in Qatar since the start of GW2, don't know if that helps. (oops, have I just dropped someone in it?!! ;D)
  3. Not if it's the same one we got one from :)

    I'm really thinking about Basra and Umm Qasr, or anywhere else inside Iraq....
  4. msr

    msr LE

    I have received an email from one of my soldiers, who I believe to be inside Iraq...

  5. I got an e-bluey from my sister (how embarrassing - my little sister goes to war and I'm stuck in Kosovo) just yesterday, so they must have some access. I think shes somewhere near the border - but probably still in Kuwait.
    Hope this helps
