What Mil Photo would you have immortalised in Paint? Hols4H

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Hellmans, Oct 15, 2009.

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 have chatted up an artist (she's crumpet so it wasn't a chore) to paint a Military picture and give us signed prints for Hols4H.

    She is (apart from being top totty) a very good painter.

    Question is, which picture to paint.

    Please post suggestions here, then I will hold a vote on the top few.

    Posted on NAAFI Bar for maximum exposure not stupid suggestions (I live in hope) !!

    Barking mad Royal Marines on the skids of the Apaches heading into Jugroom Fort.

    Any of those would be good.
