"Spotlight" BBC1 NI 10:35PM Tuesday

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by CutLunchCommando, Jun 4, 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. BBC NI's "Spotlight" Thread will be showing a programme entitled "Iraq Tales" at 2235 on Tuesday. By the look of the trail there will be a mix of stories from reservists, "Privateers" and Regulars.

    Since I have a full set of Regional BBC1 feeds between 971 and 988 on Sky I assume that a similar arrangement is available to those of you unlucky enough to reside elsewhere.
     
  2. Bump to top.

  4. Yeah watched it,
    heard a lot of bad stuf about the MOD
    but never did I hear about the lack of rations.

    What a farce, having to officially buy them from the yanks.
    Why not offically bring the damn things over in the first place.

    My heart goes out to the troops, having to eat Hershey Chocolate, yuk.

    Did you's see your mans light weight Landy, totally awsome, gona
    hav to build me, one just like it :)
     
  5. Did we not send several tons of Compo Rations free of charge and at public expense by way of assistance to the Americans after Hurrican Katrina which were subsequently left impounded and unused by the US authorities since the Americans were concerned that the contents infringed the laws relating to imported meat in general and BSE in particular?

    I have heard that the Americans subsequently repackaged them as overseas food aid as: 'a gift from the people of the United States'
