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. Could anyone tell me what the barracks are like etc ? I've heard some not so good stuff about the state of the place.
     
  2. Are you from germany?
     
  3. nevermind
     
  4. It very much depends on what you are used to, are you married or single? look at it this way, its miles away from any other unit, catterick garrison being the closest so when you leave the camp gates you see nothing military until you return. its only about 12 miles from newcastle!!!! if you're single then why do you care about the state of the barracks? you should be in town chasing women.

    In truth though, its a decent camp, has old style accommodation but has plans for the new...the shop is small, useless and extortionate!! do you get mad at service station prices? you will get madder there!!! it has a good gym if youre that way inclined, ohh and it has its own weather system, be prepared to be cold and wet alot.

    given the choice though, id pick albemarle every time
     
  5. Thanks for the info mate, very much appreciated
