I have found my SLR

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. Took a short break to Malta this week and saw my original SLR with wooden furniture. Do the Maltese Defence Forces use any other vintage kit?.

    The duty guard could have lost a few pounds but what the heck no one is going to invade that small an island.

  4. Really? well mine was 27007, let me know if you bump into it.

    And No, no wooden furniture, mine was black plastic, paddy jaw breaking stuff
     
  5. For a State that wanted rid of us ASAP they don't half like to hang on to stuff reminiscent of the days of The Empire.

    wasn't it the usual power crazy single politician that did it. I seem to remember something communisty.

  8. Not only that but they've nicked my village phone box. Thieving bastards. I wondered where it had gone.

  10. It's got the shit slit slots on it and not the lovely round holes on the grip. Jam it sideways up your mudhole! How the **** can you see the serial number from there anyway?
     
  11. Actually would be a nice picture though, if hunchback bonehead in the background was standing at attention.

  14. I certainly didn't carry that much flab when I was in the mob but the SLR will more than compensate for the fact that he probably can't run more than 20 yards before getting out of breath!

    to be fair the island is so small the bft is probably a lap.
