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. Ex serviceman, Ken Halmes, takes to the streets to find out why on any given night, up to 1,000 homeless ex-servicemen are on the streets of London.

    You never quite know what you will get fron a BBC documentary featuring HM Forces, but I shall be watching this with interest.
     
  2. Where did you get this info from? BBC website and the Radio Times both say Monday's programme (21 Apr) is about polluted air on aircraft.

  3. Sorry, should have read Tuesday 22nd.

    My appaling eyesight is to blame.
     
  4. Thank you.
    The Radio Times has a review of the programme:

    I have to say my first reaction to the OP was "1,000 ex-forces on London's streets?" This doesn't tally with the numbers produced by the charities that work with London's homeless population. I'd like to know where he got that figure from.
