I kept on hearing bout it being Osnatraz but lets hope your right. Wasn't so keen on being armoured but i guess it'll have its perks though. heard of maybe a tour in Afghan early nxt year

Lived in Osnabrück since 1997. There is loads to do, not only in Os but within a couple of hours drive too.

If your are part of the Playstation generation then you are right there is fcuk all round here.

Why not when you get to Osnabrück, you make the most of your posting and leave the loosers in the block on their PS2's.

Just a thought.

Never liked the playstaion anyhow. Xbox has always been for me

What are the locals like, and is it easy on travel as in getting to rest of europe
 
#9
The locals are German and in the main okay with us Brits. If you make an effort to learn the basics in German such as please/thankyou they usually speak English back.

The A30 is the main East West autobahn so Amsterdam is 3 hrs by car and Berlin 4. The A1 is a North South so Hamburg and Bremen are about 2 hrs North and Dotmund 90 mins South.

Prague etc can be done in a day to but worth a weekend stay.

Its what you make of it really.

The train is a bit expensive, but thats due to the world cup. Should sort themselves out again soon though.

Can only echo the above. It’s the European mainland FFS, the gateway to everywhere. 21 was (a while ago) a fine Regt, the Traz is fine place. At least it is no worse than lots of other places you could end up in!!!!!!

And by the way, since when did it start to become a choice?????

What he really wants to know is does any naked fighting go on, and can he wear ladies under-wear at the weekend? Regretting not going 59 now?

Please tell me the army hasn't spent over 21k on your training and you still can't punctuate a sentence properly. I know you've got an A-Level in English FFS ;-)

Welcome to ARRSE I told you it is an indispensable wealth of information, you stay out the NAAFI though they play rough in there...

Even if you just need to go somewhere they dont slam your change on the table Encheeda (not sure on the spelling) just over the border in Holland is a good day out and a fantastic letch!!!

Osnatraz...mmmm... there was a massive Porn shop next door to maccy dees... alledgedly

I can remember the zwiebel kneiper as being a rather good bar they tended not to let the resident infantry (or the tankies who were too busy pad shagging anyway) in so it was a bar not a wild west saloon

the bar in dodesheide next to the pizza shop was ok.. too many pissed up pads wives though lots of sharons and traceys

There still is a massive porn shop next to Mc Donalds called Tescos by us local squaddies due to its enourmas size.

As a sprog was totally amazed by stuff on sale there. Right up MDN's street.

A fist upto the forearm made out of latex for your pleasure sir?

thats the place, I was in the community centre the night PIRA mortared Quebec barracks the last time around , the comm cen was emptied and closed so every man and his dog (or wife) went to grammaphones to carry on firing a few warmers innto the bank
