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. Can anyone help me, Please, with Google Earth co-ords for the following locations which i was serving in, in the Radfan:
    Monk`s Field
    Cap-Badge
    Piccadilly
    Hotel 10
    I have Ordnance Survey Map-References, but cant find the area.
    There are also some Ops maps on Britain`s Small Wars.
    (The Yemenis have changed all the Loc names !)
    Also in the Radfan, I have found an odity ? An "Invicta" Horse cut into the side of the mountain. It is at:
    14-51-37-84 North
    44-21-38-15 East
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks in advance

  3. If you have the OS co-ords then try this link for an MGRS overlay for google earth.

    It's number 17 on the list.

    There may be other apps on that page that could help you also.
     
  4. It might have been done by the Buffs (East Kent) who did a tour in Aden 1958/59ish and spent some time up-country
     
  5. . . . I don't know what they do to the enemy . . .

    Actually . . . I just don't know what that one does at all . . . does he charge for it? Whatever it is?
     
  6. ...................and I had hoped this was the intelligent part of it................
    Thanks asr1...........am giving the grid a try now.
    Sandman, I think you are mistaking me for someone else.
    Stoker.............you are acting as an ******** as usual. (so nothing new there)
    Yes, Tawahi thought it might be RWK also. I don`t think they are aware of it.
    Will give further SITREP
