2 battalion...


Don't expect all responses to be fully serious on here. You might get some informed and helpful responses if you are lucky

The initial responder cites Hamburg due to the Reeperbahn I suspect and the Pink House for a similar reason - which you have already tumbled to.

Life in Fally will be what you make it.
Im about to be posted to 2 battalion reme in fallingbostel as a l/cpl land system tech and was wondering if anyone had any details on the unit:
Tour dates:
General camp life:
Germany in general:
Work load:
Any other details would be appreciated, cheers
General 'Camp' Life...only a Tech could ask that!!
Germany in general is full of Germans, beer, whorehouses and Turks......as a Tech you will not be interested in any of them unless you fancy a Turk boyfriend!
Work Load......PAT testing, brew making and guard duties.....Tech Sprog.

Any other details.....don't upset the Black Hand Gang (BHG)...never drink with the Recy Mech's until they at least recognise you as a lesser, NEVER think because your a Lance Jack that your better than any BHG Crafty.....if you do prepare for the beatings to begin.

Enjoy....get out and see Europe, especially southern Germany, Italy and Switzerland.....Don't feel like you have to buy a brand new car tax free, use your money to enjoy life and not be tied to a debt..( thats the parent in me!)
Hamburg is now over an hour away unless you need to collect some points on your licence. In the other direction and not quite so far you have Hannover with it's multiple eros centre staircases. You can batter a few scientologists or get battered by the Hells Angels there!

There are a few pad shagging venues in the "toon" but it's a bit like Tombstone without the Earps, the graveyard is the liveliest place in town.
Life must have changed since I was Land Systems ASM. Craftys used to get their posting then be told to give me & the instructors a lecturette on it before leaving the compound.

Saved starting bone fecking threads on here.............

Getting a bit fretful in your old age mate ;-)

As for Fallingrad, as has been mentioned it is what you make it. Had four good years there as a pad 90-94, even played two seasons for the local over 30's team, very social affair.

Copper Kettle has closed the last I heard.

Loved Fally spent 6 great years there.

Apparently it closed awhile ago. Many a happy night spent there.

Do miss La Trattoria though.
REME Bn's lucky you......NOT

The ******** of postings- enjoy...

Stay out of camp as much as possible get wankered liberally and smash some german female pumpenholen in - in your case as a tech - male pumpenholen.

Use your tax free as much as possible and buy as many apple products and show with your geeky mates your IT porn.

If you do push the boat and decided to go crazy whoring it dont tell her your a tech or she'll get the strap on and bum you rotten....

A bit like what you get from work at a REME shattalion - full of dungertrumpets who will want to shaft you right up the ricker **** dry from a career perspective.
I seem to be a bit behind these days, when did 7 Armoured become 2 Battalion or whatever, and what the **** is a "Land System Tech", sounds like a posh ploughman.
On the plus side Fally was fine when I was there in the late 80's, might have changed a bit by now I suspect.
