Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is a semi-serious question of which I have just been reminded.

  8. That's spot on, which I why I said I was reminded. When my sister did our family tree she discovered that our Grandfather was a railway station master in the early 20th century, and during the build up to the great war was somehow drafted in as a code breaker for the War Office. So it seems he was MI1.

    Thanks for the answers; a mild curiosity has been sated.

  9. MI-1 (Hare)
    MI-2 (Hoplite)
    MI-4 (Hound)
    MI-6 (Hook)
    MI-10 (Harke)
    MI-12 (Homer)

    Some of us were brought up on the former.

    MI-4 last used by Iraqi Army during their invasion of Kuwait. Based on the Westland Whirlwind/Sikorsky S?? design
  10. Sad, very sad!
  11. Heh. Yeah.
  12. There you go ... takes anorak off.
  13. But didn't you think the Mi-2 Hoplite was a much sexier little beast than any of her NATO contemporaries

  14. Not sexy when hovering close to you. Neither is HIND-D when live firing at Retzlow Range and you are underneath; 23mm empties can be harmful to health !
