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:

    Well, I hope PTP wont mind it seemed a suitable thread to air this one in :


    Heavyweight cotton

    Colour BLACK as pictured

    Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XL and XXL( - ' A fine tent Effendi...I give you 3 goats for her !' )

    Price: available to ARRSE Telic veterans for a knock-down......I dunno......£13:50 each, with profits to RBL ?

    PM me with your size if you are interest, as I'd like to send a consolidated order.


    Thank you,

  2. Goaty:

  4. Oh god, I'm asking for a kick in the nuts here.

    Yes please mate. Medium.

    Hmm...I see PTP has shunted this as far away from Current Affairs as he can....in my view this T shirt is a pretty wry comment on the situation in Iraq and its being retailed by a US site which is linked to the US Army...so what does that tell you ?

    It tells me that, no matter what the Administration says in public, the grunts who put their lives on the line know EXACTLY what the score is....

    So sorry if your earnest thread on Gen Odom's statement was inadvertently polluted PTP.....and your order is noted Stabs.
    Will see if there are any other takers and place the order by Friday next week. I'll PM you with where to send the cheque after that.

    Anybody else who is interested (standfast PTP who obviously disapproves of my eternal levity) plse PM me with your order - if we get enough I might persuade them to do a sand coloured one which can be worn with CS95 !

    Sorry for the delay - Had a problem with the original site but have successfully placed my own order today.

    Suggest I wait until I get mine to see if they're any cop and THEN place your orders - happy ?

    You can order direct at http://www.soldiercity.com/product-exec/product_id/10596 if you prefer?

  9. Wouldn't postage be cheaper if split many ways as opposed to paying it twice?

    sorry for the delay....all the US stockists I contacted don't ship this way...so i've sent the artwork to a fab company in Swansea ( there's lovely boyo !) who I hope will get back to me soonest.

    I'll assume goods are still required unless i hear otherwise....

    Guys ( and Bossyboots) ,

    sorry this has stalled: none of the US suppliers can ship this way for reasons which beat the sh7t outta me......so, had some correspondence with the ABF (see below) and will keep you posted....not giving up on this yet !

    No problem will do my best to get back to you Monday if that's ok. As you know we are closing, so I'll get you a good deal anyway and should you wiish to make a donation that would be lovely.

    Subject: RE: ABF Enterprises - printed tee shirts ?

    I want to get some Tee shirts made up. I thought that if I used the same printer as the ABF we could raise some money over the cost of the shirts to go to the ABF ?

    Grateful for a call if you have a moment today if possible please?

    Many thanks,

    sorry folks....wait out still.....thank you for your patience.
