What do you guys read on operations?

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, my name is Vicki and I've just returned from a stint at BATUS in Canada reporting on Merseyside soldiers and the work they're doing there.

    As a result, we've decided to set up a blog dedicated to the work of Merseyside servicemen and women on the ECHO site and that should be up and running in a few days - your comments, good and bad, will be welcomed!

    In the meantime, I was wondering what you guys read in your 'downtime' on operations and wondering if you could help me by posting on my 'other' blog? http://bit.ly/672i5

    Your help would be much appreciated! I'm sure people would want to know!
  2. Phone numbers on the lavvy walls mainly.
  3. Porn, obviously.
  4. Depends where I am/were, overseas exercise probably meant I had a small collection of Satr'e, some abstract poetry and a Racing Times, adventure training would allow me to chill a bit with copies of the Viz, Private Eye and a smattering of politico satire.....On operations however I tended to lean towards 'gash open' shots, still images of forceful sodomy, 'play' rape stories and the odd xxx gay shoot.

    PM me for links and a Swan Vesta box with a pubic hair in x x
  5. We can read?

    Is this just for Scousers? If not, I read Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas", my Good News Bible, copies of Viz that I nicked from W.H. Smith on the way to Brize and, finally, The Book Of Mormon given to me by some American street preacher... crap reading, but good bum-fodder. .. and you can roll a fag with their paper. Also, a letter from my daughter... awwwwww x
  7. Maps, mainly...
  8. Don't rule out the officers so quickly!
  9. I read palms. I see much darkness in your future.

    The instruction manual for the said operation and a relevent medical journal usually help, for instance when I perform female circumcisions or abortions in my garage, I find a copy of Swank, The British Medical Journal and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Fish Cookbook to be most helpful.
  11. I used to have a rag eared copy of the Kays catalogue on my wagon, the pages where lingerie was being modelled were all stuck together, funny that, we had no glue on the truck.
  12. Anything by JT Edson.
  13. Hey, no it's not just for Scousers... interested in anyone's feedback really - I'm going to transfer over onto my blog the comments I can... it is a family newspaper :)
    Thanks for these!
  14. Maps, orders, and well maps and orders, look at but dont read porn too I guess........................jesus that time allready, got to go get my hair permed.
  15. The blog - by the way - is http://bit.ly/672i5 if you want to do it yourself... I don't mind either way. Just interested.
