Where Are The 500? Anyone know?

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. A little bird tells me that another 2000 bayonets would achieve an objective that would make life a great deal less dangerous for those at the sharp end. Instead, Cyclops promised 500, but where are they? Have they vanished like the 9th Legion? I suspect I know, but let's hear what the forum has to say.
  2. I have one upstairs that I could post.
  3. Don't you get issued a bayonet on deployment? Why would 2000 more help? You can only fit one on to the weapon at a time anyway.
  4. Due to a recent change in the Health and Safety regulations,the use of bayonets is being put under review.
    They are quite sharp and could hurt someone.
