Searching for pictures from deployments

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. Hi all!,

    The Graffiti of War project is looking for pictures of "art" made by service members on deployment. This can be anything from a painting on a T-wall to a scribble of thoughts in a portajohn. We really want to make this an international project! The Americans are not the only ones who have been deployed so it would be great to include pictures from different countries.

    Offering a unique perspective, experience the wars through the eyes of those living and dying through these conflicts. Each image represents a moment in time, when an emotion was captured in ink, paint, or pencil, an unconventional historical record of this generation's war. Our Mission is that through sharing these images, we will begin a dialog between soldier and civilian, to bridge this ever-widening divide between our warfighters and civilians. To bring understanding and true empathy of what our military men and women experience during their deployments.

    Therefore if you have any of the pictures, ideas, suggestions we would love to hear from you!

    Go for more information to The Graffiti of War Project - Home or send us an email through ingebakker400@hotmail.com or doc@graffitiofwar.com

    Cheers!

  2. Hi all!

    In addition to the "art" made on walls we are now also looking for the art made on skin.. Military/war tattoos!

    A book centered around the tattoos of our armed service members. The Graffiti of War Project is creating a book showcasing the "skin graffiti" of our brave warfighters. The mission is by using the world's facination with Skin Art to raise awareness about the struggles of our warfighters suffering from the silent wounds of war, PTSD.

    We are creating a website, www.warfighters-ink.com, dedicated to this project, but you can also take a look at Welcome to Facebook

    Thanks for reading!
