No Boots? Have a Hijab...

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. Do they come in DPM?

    It's a bit like the related story about no pyjamas, or in plain language bollox. Its the sun and complete rubbish.
     
  3. What does this bit mean:

    Can you hide behind them, in Helmand say?

    Girl in my local corner shop has a gucci hijab. Does that mean they are now gucci bits of kit?


    Im gone before the taxi, dont worry.

    couldn't quite work that one out myself, maybe the bulletproof, or they turn you invisible like in harry potter :?
     
  7. If this isnt a wah, I think they mean they can blend in with the populace easier.
     
  8. The worrying thing about this is that J-D actually went to the 'News' section of the Sun... :D

    Still, it's written by Newton-Dunne, so it qualifies as comedy, I suppose:

    "...Muslim women, prized due to their rare, natural cover."

    "...squaddies in Iraq were forced to buy their own kit."

    "...One dog handler forked out £85 for new boots..."

    Frankly what's the problem? Clearly full face veils etc would be out,but Sikhs wear turbans why should the muslim females that want to wear Hijab be any different? 'The Sun' should get a life and find a real story - clearly the lack of election fever has left them all scrabbling for news.
     
  10. a non story, from a non entity.
     
  11. Are they also exempt from the symptoms of nerve agent etc? Masking in 9 might be a problem.
