On behalf of a RE Lt, somewhere in Afghanistan...,
This review is from: The Official ARRSE Guide to the British Army (Hardcover)
The perfect book for anyone wanting to spend more than 2 hrs in the company of British Army personnel!
I was a bit dubious about the book at first, as I thought it might be either a bit patronizing to us in the army or too complicated/technical for civvies to understand. However I left it on the coffee table for the lads to read and it literally has not been put down. Everyone that comes through picks it up and has a good laugh. They'll look first at their regiment, then the Special Forces page and then at the piss-take page of the RLC or Signals. It's a really funny assortment of facts, and most of the lads have said they'd buy it for themselves or as a present for someone they know who's ex-forces. Great for girlfriends and wives as well.
