Immorality of forcing the military

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. Cracking article in "The Business" - don't know who wrote the article, or the publication but a bloody good read! Perhaps the author should get honorary membership of BAFF?

     
  2. A hard-hitting article, and useful in keeping us in the public eye when we would otherwise have vanished from the media radar again; overtaken by Big Brother and terrorist raids.

    What a disastrous period for the Services. I doubt that anyone in the Government will even notice, though. For anything to change, we will have to lose a major engagement and take numerous casualties.

    I don't even trust Cameron to redress the situation.

  3. All good stuff and as you say - a hard hitting article but to balance this there have been advances in some areas which the author fails to mention.

    It is a sad but realistic fact.. that the soldiers' lot is a tough one - always has been and always will be. We do not join to get rich but we do expect a decent standard of living and equipment to do our job properly.... and this is where there are many failings. Keep the pressure on the politicians, educate the public so they understand the failings and let democracy do the rest.

  5. Been done three times now. In the 'stan thread and a second thread of it's own.

    Still worth another read tho.
