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. Hi there, does anyone know the company name and telephone number for the people who were selling photo's at the passing in parade?

    We where told they would be there, in the hall, until 4pm on the day and managed to get some cash together by 3:30 but they had already gone and we could not buy our photo's.

    Thanks
    Mark

  6. That brings back a memory from the past!

    Quite likely a military/urban myth but a few decades ago in BAOR there was the story of a German photographer going around the bases/quarters doing family photos at very cheap rates.

    Not a con; no money was required up front but the problem was that the photos never turned up and the photographer was not seen again.

    The story was that it was a Soviet effort- the theory being that to show a captured soldier a photo of his family would be the quickest way to break him during interrogation.
