Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Bisley, Oct 27, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. Anyone out there remember the above or were there during the early eighties. It was on Braganza Street, South East London???
  2. It amalgamated in the early 1990's with 257 Gen Hosp & 221 Fd Amb to become 256 (City of London) Field Hospital. The Braganza St site is now RHQ & A Sqn. Hope this helps. PM If you want any more info.
  3. I was in the Blackheath Detachment of 217
  4. Good to see there is still someone about, I was in B coy (Brighton) in the 90s....a life time ago now but it still seems like only :? yesterday.
  5. J'd always wanted 257 to be known as '257 General Army Surgical Hospital' but I was very childish in those days. Still am come to think of it. Is the Harrow det still going?

  15. I ended up being seconded to the Army Medical Directorate for a 3 month 'Project' - - then before I knew it, was signed upfor a brand new post as SO3 Medical Intelligence firstly at Keogh then later at Sandhurst. Should have been 5 years, but someone looked the other way when I got to 60!
