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. Can anyone tell me EXACTLY what they are checking on laptops for operation deployment to telic, so i can tell the G6 depatment what to do with it. Cheers

    PORN and oh, yes - those nasty officers who do insist on trying to get Confidential and Secret material through on a Restricted Laptop. Nevermind, you can always use your portable hard drive on a USB port connector to do that. Only 120Gb of info to square yourself away. :wink: :thumleft:
  3. They are checking that you don't have one of those Dell Computers that have the exploding batteries I believe
  4. Unless things have changed, CIS equipment unlawfully leaving theatre (Don't laugh do you know how many laptops the MOD 'loose's') Classified information, 'Sensitive' Images ie the ones people keep trying to sell to the press depicting one thing but claimed to be something else. Porn of any sort.
    Of course Mysteron has the better solution, just make sure you use truecypt first :)

    Dangerously into the realms of PM material here chum - go tell your precious SO3 (from me of course) to get off their fat arse and ring the local MI Sect - they will brief the said young staff officer up. I hope it asks with sufficient humility.........sometimes the wrong answer is given to the arrogant.....just to let 'em know like...... :wink:
  8. Sounds just like my old boss...not the porn, the confidential and secret stuff! :twisted: Yours truly was the unfortunate soul who logged on to his laptop and discovered it.
  9. Same thing happened to me in Bosnia....i took over a Laptop that was used by a Capt. Decided to see what was on it and there were some nice photos of him with a lady.
    Now either he took the Laptop back to UK on R&R(???) or he had a liason with a local lady!!!!
  10. Like any sensible and genuine type would have done rather than joining up just to post this on a public forum! :frustrated:

    "Yes Boss, I checked with the relevent authority ( to make sure I got the definitive answer to your question"

    What do you really want, Muppett?
