Instant Embassies.....

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Jip Travolta, Jan 6, 2003.

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.  
    "The Foreign Office is assembling "instant embassies" to be flown, in containers, to trouble spots".

    "They would include flat-pack buildings, tables, chairs, communications equipment and rations".

    "The British embassy there (in Kabul) was very run-down and it took time to get it up and active again".

  3. You took the time and effort to find a ten year old thread about embassies just to add that searing insight into the UK FCO's day to day activities?
