Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has pulled the plug on a Web site dedicated to the Territorial Army branch of Britain's elite special forces unit, the Special Air Service (SAS).

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said the site, which was set up to attract volunteers to the London-based 21 Special Air Service Regiment (Reserves), was dropped because "there were elements of the site the MoD was not happy about".

He declined to say what these elements were or whether the site, set up by volunteers themselves and live for only around a week, would be allowed to go online again. No other regiments or divisions of the SAS have Web sites, he added.

According to the Times, the Web site showed SAS in action with their identities protected. The site was emblazoned with the SAS motto: "Who Dares Wins" and the message: "Special Forces - A Unique Challenge".

The SAS site was accessible through a another site which features dozens of other volunteer reserve forces units. Volunteer reserve forces, who serve part-time, form about a third of the UK's armed forces. ®
