Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  3. I googled it and it came up with this;

    Mdns photo album

    I'm guessing this is what you are on about??

    Or this;

  4. Which war would that be pre. To a lot of us oldies that'll probably be WW2, then the slightly less oldies will think the Korean (even though it was only a police action) we then have Malaya,Aden,Suez, Cyprus, NI, Falklands and sundry other skirmishes in between. I'm well aware that at the moment the forces are going through a hell of a time but you aren't the first and definitely won't be the last. Just keep your head down, watch your mates back and look forward to Post War.
  5. 1939- Germany were thinking about an extended tour into Poland?
    1950- north Koreans were thinking about an extended tour into south Korea?
    1954- North Vietnam decided it was about time they booted out the French?
    1967- Half the Arab nations think it's time to sort out those pesky Isrealis?
    1982- Dear old Maggie needs a re-election, time for a trip down south?
    1990- Those tiresome Iraqis are saber rattling, send in the troops?
    2001-Bush and co were thinking of going on an extended tour into the middle east?

    Take your pick mate, which war is it?

    The whole point about an acronym is that it helps you recall what it stands for....I'm gonna give you a hand GSMESC, that's your P more or less dealt with :D

    And this has surely got to be a wah!!!!
  9. mo, there is a plethora of information on the subject in this forum. Try a search for it in the training wing threads.

    This is the NAAFI bar, an area for ripping the p!sh, nothing more, nothing less. :wink:

  14. PREWAR is now:

    R REEF (RTR)
