Evening all,

Attentive Arrsers will have spotted this thread posted by a certain Maj D. Astor (possibly a pseudonym) looking for your help.

What the good Major is looking for specifically is listed below:

Pictures Needed for the Arrse Guide

The Official Arrse Guide to the British Army is being published later this year and needs pictures. This could be your opportunity to impress that good-looking but naive girl that you're actually a 'professional' photographer so it's OK to get 'em out.

What we need are good quality clear JPEGs at 300dpi or higher res. They should not show anything which is classified or in other ways potentially sensitive. We are after the following subjects and themes:

Equipment:
Challenger 2
CVR(T)
Bulldog
Warrior
Saxon
Jackal
WMIK
Snatch
Lynx
Gazelle
Apache
AS90
Light Gun
Titan
Trojan
SA80A2
LSW
Minimi
GPMG
Sig P226
Browning Hi Power
Heckler and Koch variants
Other Equipments in use with the British Army


Uniforms and Clothing:
Any clear shots of clothing and personal equipment in current use by the Army
Clear shots of regimental badges and special dress distinctions


Places:

Pictures bathed in the heady atmosphere of...
Afghanistan
Belize
Canada
Cyprus
The Falkland Islands
Germany
Gibraltar
Iraq
Kenya
Northern Ireland
Anywhere else you've been to with the Army


Stuff:
Fun or amusing British Army themed pictures
Free money

£10.00 will be paid for every photograph used and can be paid either direct or as a donation to Hols for Heroes. So, you can either buy yourself several tubes of fighting juice or assist MDN in his dastardly scheme to bugger defenceless amputees in sunny Spain. Everyone's a winner (except for the buggeree, obviously)

All pics to arrseguide(at)me.com please.

Cheers.

so you want us to provide all the photos and then next write the book, lazy basterds.

As I understand it from the author, the manuscript was handed to the publisher some time ago. It's help with the photographs he's after.

I sent him a CD with some photos of penguins and stuff on yesterday. He should have it in the morning.

You probably didn't get any further than Timmys and the Crab and Sprocket so no need to send your Op tour photos of The Falklands Sluggy.

Sixty Ive got a photo of a Chally 2 and Warrior 513 on my profile...are they ok?? can send a few more all donations to Chaaaaarity

Thanks Iron. I believe so as long as you took them yourself so that there's no copyright issue. Banging them to the email address above will be your best bet though for a definitive answer.

I didn't even go to those bars, why socialise with people I work with?

I'm gutted I couldn't put the photos of when I went up in the Herc to do a bit of "Maritime Patrol", but I took them on my highly expensive and tactical camera. (i.e. it's pink and I bought it from Tescos so the quality is shit).
