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. On Monday 31 Jan 06 t was announced that 4 Armd Bde would be returning to Catterick in 2009.

    It was also announced that 2200 British troops would be posted to Germany as part of 7 and 20 Armd Bdes.

    Does anyone know which units will be posted to Germany and were they will be based ???
  2. Most units in Osnabruck/Munster will be going to Catterick, but the QDG will be staying in Germany as will 1 Med Regt.

    8 Tpt Regt RLC will be moving to Germany along with 2 Royal Anglian and 1 YORKS (once formed). In addition there will be 601 new individual posts in Germany.

    There will still be British troops in Osnabruck but in much reduced numbers. Still a sad day but not quite as bad as some of us thought it would be...
  3. Boys Brigade annual camp maybe,
    cos i've no idea where we are going to get all those extra bodies from
