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. LINKY.

    I'm thinking of getting this, have any of you read it yet?

    Is it a good read, or just a re-hash of stuff that's already in the public domain?

    Amazon reviews are interesting, but mixed.

  2. ...put Despatches on now and you can observe MPs on summer holiday, sorry, I mean working hard saving the planet (which planet is anyone's guess?)
  3. It's a lightly re heated version of what has already appeared in the Telegraph, I think they have squeezed enough money out of this without providing them with any more.
  4. I heard a rumour that it was being made into a film, titled - 'Swindlers List'
    I know, I'm not being very helpfull here...............

  5. I think this is your coat and that'll be your taxi sir...

    If we can work out what colour the sky is, it might narrow it down a bit,
  7. Having got this and read it (yes, I'm a slow reader!) I can thoroughly recommend it. During the time the Telegraph was publishing the stories I didn't read much detail on it, just thinking "Oh no, not again" a lot. But having read the detail in this, including of how the disc was procured was an enjoyable read and even funny in parts towards the end.

    The reviews on Amazon are nearly all high now and it's down to £10.18.

    P.S. Full disclosure, I have nothing to do with the book, I just like it :D
