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:

    Iraq says it has captured a British Land Rover and equipment that was air-dropped into northern Iraq.

    According to Iraqi TV, locals ran to the spot where the drop was made near Mosul.

    They recovered the Land Rover, with its machine-gun still mounted, and various anti-tank weapons, Iraqi TV said.

    The station broadcast footage of Iraqis celebrating around the vehicle and driving it.

    It showed grenades and other weapons it said were also found.

    To date, there has been no official word of British troops operating in the north of the country.

    Analysts said if the TV report is true, it suggests the vehicle may have been dropped for special forces secretly operating in the north.

    Heavily-armed Land Rovers, nicknamed "Pinkies", were used by the SAS behind enemy lines during the 1991 Gulf War.

    P.S. I'm getting a bit cheesed off with reports that I have lost control. I haven't, so there.
  8. ;D Aaah, yes. You've got the L/R, but wait till you try to get some spares from the QM's.

  10. It wouldn't be the same interesting thing as I saw on an Arab news bulletin last night would it?

    Are we in danger of seeing some more books?
