If the MOD was a mastercard advert...

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:

    Charter a plane to fly a NW based TA unit and 1/2 a Company of Gurkhas from Cyprus to Kent: £12,000

    Coach rental from Kent to Manchester: 2x £750

    The look on the blokes faces as the empty plane takes off for Manchester*: Priceless

    For a superior level of f*ckwittery, you can rely on the MOD.

    * The MOD having refused permission for us to stay on it.

    Crew were happy to take us.

  3. Because the buses were already booked and would have cost money to cancel (albeit a smaller amount)?
     
  4. Because to keep them on the plane would have been common sense and the MOD didn't want to be associated with that kind of decision? :?
