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. I am in the process of writing a dissertation on Iraq, focusing on the Implementation British doctrine.

    A while ago i remember reading about how many (of few) British officers had actually read the doctrine before deploying. I seem to have made a bit of an error and i have been unable to find it in my notes.

    does anyone know where i could find this reference? or something similar.
