RAF Regt epic fail?

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. Bit harsh mate, the article does say the driver was an Afghan and not RAF Regt. Although the SOPs of the potentially failed attack could well be RAF Regt ;)

    An 8 mile square camp with 30000 personnel doesn't mean that the RAF Reg stag on over every inch of the place !
     
  3. Snowdrops, then.

    Oh they never liked us in Gib that lot !
     
  5. So just how is this related to the RAF Regt? Clearly states that it was an Afghan driver and that the US Marines had taken over security.

    I should imagine that there will be an urgent reveiw of car passes as they don't throw that barrier up for just anyone you know.

    Did it burst into flames on it's own or under the combined weight of fire from shed loads of US marines?
     
  7. Let's hope he didn't have a koran in his pocket......oh the outrage!
     
  8. Even VIP visits will have a element of unavoidable weak points, an 8 mile radius location is quite a tough call unless 'all' resources are available, key areas identified and maximised with manpower.

    Raf Rgt, Snowdrops and available attached arms to assist. However isn't this an combined US location??

    Something the Police have learnt, insufficient Police numbers on the beat so replace/increase with PCSO's to dominate & gather intel.
     
  9. FP for Bastion is the Tonga Defence Force...

    When the Tongan CGS came out on a recce to decide what task the Tongan contingent was to fulfill we offered them a training & security role at the HPTC, but they chose to girl it in BSN with the SRDG.
     
  12. In fairness if the Afghan had endangered the NAAFI coffee shop I'm sure the RAF Regt would have kicked his **** right in.
