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. I know this is a serious business, but this just made me laugh. You can just picture one of the Captains or RSM running in afterwards to find him naked under a table with a goat and covered in p!ss. He's not going to be getting any stick about it. :)
     
  2. A goat?They don't have any horses in Iraq? :D
     
  3. I'll have you know that Ben the goat is not to be made light of. He is infact a proud member of HMF

    "Basra's a rough town -- but one that's critical to Iraq's future. Fortunately, the British-led force here is at the top of its game, with new equipment and tactics and a growing recognition that a functional Iraq won't look like Britain or the U.S, but is still worth fighting for."

    Yes.

  6. ...no wonder the goat was panicked!

    Dhi Qar is a 'barren desert province' is it? So we'll ignore the marshes, Iraq's fourth largest city (Nasiriyah) and the 2,000,000 or so inhabitants?
     
  8. As far as I know, the marshes haven't been a hotbed. Have there been many issues there as of late? (not a sarcastic rhetorical question, I'm curious)

    edit: David Axe (author of this piece) just wrote another piece. He seems intent on staying embedded with the Squaddies this time around. His Iraq blog is here http://www.defensetech.org/archives/cat_axe_in_iraq.html

    Also, he's got some good pics of British operations.

    These are his current pics of British operations:

    The rest is SPAM centric, so I won't bother you guys with them.
     
  9. Hmmmmmmmmm
     
  10. My enduring memory of Dhi-Qar is the mud. It rained - a lot. One of our biggest problems was drainage - water everywhere and nowhere for it to go.
     
  11. Of course not.
     
  12. Oh, come on Sergey, you plonka. You missed out the important bit....
