They have all trades in 23 Amphibious Engineer Sqn. I was there and I was an Electrician.

The Amph Qual is a Spec Qual that you could attain whilst you are posted to them.

Depending on when you get there will depend on what you will do as at the moment 23 AES are in a slight re-role with only one 'Amph' Troop.

I'd plan for Rear Party...................

Regt aside, I served in 37 (35 Engr Regt) in Hamlen. IMHO (having been in Paderborn on numerous occasions) lady luck has smiled on you. Hameln is beautiful town. Good social life too. I had a wonderful time there. Enjoy.

Hence why I said set yourself for Rear Party, you missed 90% of the OPTAG Trg.

Unless they send you on a IRT Package.

Hameln! Perlease!. Great place Hameln. Paderborne is also a good place but I think Hameln is better. But then its about a hundred years since I was there :D

How times have changed. It was an Amphibious Engineer Regiment when i was there. Now it is down to a troop!

Hameln was a cracking town,plenty of good pubs,make sure you go to the Bathtub.

Smudge, this is only for the Herrick XI deployment then 23 will be a full on Amph Sqn again supposidly.

I have had some good times in Hameln, both in the early 90's on M2's and my later stint on M3's. I have come full circle now and am back in 64.

Hameln is a brilliant posting.

You might be too late to deploy - but they will want "tom's" on the ground, so you might be lucky, if they need chippies.

Its a Field Squadron at the moment - the TA will be looking after the boats.
