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.  
  2. Is this a spoof? The picture of the female Afghani policewoman all "cammed up" with a pistol cannot be real, as for the group photo and PC Henderson-------
     
  3. If so, the BBC, ITV and Sky have all been taken in by it as it was heavily featured on television last week.
     
  4. Would it be unfair to suggest that this is a diversity opportunity taken?
     
  5. Sounds plausible to me. Where they're working, it'd be pretty well impossible to be accepted without dressing "appropriately." Of course it would be more practical if they could wear similar clothing to the blokes, but they're probably getting enough hassle as it is. Good for them!
     
  6. Pc Henderson. You would wouldn't you?

    I like the fact that they are all wearing dark glasses so they won't be reocognised. The burka is obviously not enough on its own. I suppose Afghan men get very good at recognising different women - bit like the sad buggers who used to be able to tell it was a T-72 by looking at a roadwheel rivet...
