I'm due to be posted to 39 Engr Regt Wksp REME in June and was wondering if anybody who is/has served there can give me a heads up on the unit. Any impending tours etc would be useful.
Are you frickin' serious?methilman said:I have been there and did not enjoy Waterbeach at all, its in the middle of nowhere, where even the local shops are a hike away. Make sure you have got a car as you will need it.
Apart from that the unit itself wasn't too bad, enjoy!!
I was also there in 2000, in 34 sqn, as a lcpl.threaders-vm said:I was there in 2000. All other workshops/units have paled in comparison, best posting I have ever had. Its all there, tours if you want, a drinking culture, loads of student chicks in the city, small village life, working hours the way it should be. Enjoy it mate, there aint many like it nowadays.
