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 confirm what i have just heard, that the number of flights delivering mail to theatre has been cut by 50%, massive moral boost or what.
  2. Or perhaps they can't fill all the ones they have as people are sending less??? Massive over reaction or what..................

    Edit - or sending eblueys?
  3. It's not the mail getting to theatre that's the issue. It's getting from the airhead to the FOBs. We averaged one mail drop a month for most of the tour, but when we were out MOGing, forget it!
  4. Don't forget to allow for the tour Roulement, which is this time of year
  5. Mail delivery has been reduced from four times a week to two,
  6. I'm not surprised, I've never seen an overworked postie
