Scientific rationale behind Battenburg!!!

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by india-juliet, May 9, 2006.

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. You all no doubt have seen the fancy illuminous markings on Police Traffic & beat vehicles called Battenburg.

    Would you beleive the Police Scientific Development Branch published a 46 page document on the Battenburg markings with the finding being :

    Be recognisable as a Police Vehicle up to a distance of 500 metres in normal daylight!.

    You would want to be full throttle down the Motorway not to see that beast from 500 metres away :D
     
  2. Link here

    They copied it from a cake.

    That didn't need 46 pages.
     
  3. I wonder if there are any decendants from the original Battenburg Family to sue for Copyright!!!!!
     
  4. Link here

    It seems that Mountbatten was a Battenberg.

    So that means Phil the Greek could take up the case.
     
  5. Will they end up with a copyright symbol on the side of all emergency service vehicles?
     
  6. .......or possibly a sponsorship deal???
     
  7. The Police, Sponsored by The Royal Family PLC?

    or

    The Royal Family, sponsored by the British Police farce?
     
  8. mmmmm.
