35 Engineer Regiment - Feedback please!

#1
Gents, at the moment l have a pretty good indication of where l'm heading next, and l'm trying to get as much information as possible.

Done all the usual suspects ie Armynet etc, however the grass is always green on their so pro's and con's of Paderborn if you would.

For your information, lm a single SNCO with no ties so if you feel the urge to PM me with information, that would be appreciated.

Location, facilities, nightlife, local town housing (rental?) is all good stuff.

REgards in advance.

I eft 35 in September 2005. Really enjoyed it, good lads, good night life, etc. The razman at the time was a twat (I spent my last 12 months in the officers mess, and even they slagged him off... Inc the CO), but would be interesting to know what it's like now he's gone.

Oh, and just as I left the PWRR had moved onto camp - they seemed a good bunch of lads, , although things such as bringing birds back to camp etc, tightened up, but otherwise it was a good unit.

The night life was pretty good, with some decent bars... Limericks was a decent Irish bar- and the guiness was better in there than it was in my local back in England.

Reference living out costs - I remember looking at flats as I almost stayed over there with my ex-at the time.... Prices were pretty cheap from what I remember - can't remember exact prices but more than affordable if I had got some menial, crappy paid job as a UKBC.

I now know not only how crap the next year is going too be, but beyond!!

Got too be without doubt the worst unit l have ever been too, talk about 'reactive'!!

3 months in, and sadly the Germany being great rumours are falling well short of expectations... maybe its just here!!

So top tip if your posted here - be a singly, because if your not, you will be very quickly with the lack of any time to settle with family

weekends off if your lucky!!

What a sh!t hole.
that's funny, I could've sworn people said that about waterbeach around the time I left!!!!

good to see things are looking up

I dont think the problem is Paderbourne itself, its most probably the 'management' at 35. Left a lot to be desired IMHO.

Sadly mate at times it still does however the good bosses are often shouted down by the man who does not like confrontation (sp?)

cant think who you mean!!
If 35 was a football club, it would be Tottenham - undermanned, good blokes, shocking management decisions.

Desperatley needs a change at the top before the place disappears in a blur of bullshit and caos!!

So lets get this right:

22 is the worst, so is 26. Add to that 32, 35 and 21. Any more takers??

The finest Corps in the army being ruined daily by complete idiots.

Sad times.


Sorry mate for a second I thought you were talking about the abortion that was the splitting of the TAs 73 and 71 Regiments to make 72. Still at least we don't have to put up with all the giberrish all of the time.

I can second that, Hohne Broke me, asked for a posting after 4 years and was refused, I ended up signing off to get away from the place!

28 has definately got to be up there with the worst. I only asked for here on the reputation that this place was fantastic!!!! How on earth people can let it drop to how it is now is beyond belief, although i would say 32 is just a little bit worse.

My 2 I/C was trying to sell Germany as a posting to me last night. I wonder why I have got no interest in going there with comments like this being posted?
