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:

  2. Amazing they got out at all.

    Anybody ever heard the Malay and Pak Military version? I'd be curious.

    I recall UNOSOM lost something like a 100 men including a couple of dozen Pakistanis a month earlier. You never hear much about this.

    I found this on a Pak military site.
    Not a fan of the Pak Military but their Smurf work is creditable.
     
  3. There's unfortunately sparse details on alot of the operations of non-US troops in Somalia (though alot of Canadian academics have written on Canadas involvement). However, the record does suggest that the Pakistanis definitely earned their stripes in Somalia, and I've never heard anyone dispute it.

    The Pakistanis were actually the first troops to arrive in country under UNOSOM I, before Operation Restore Hope and then the implementation of UNOSOM II.
