6 SUP REGT RLC LAD REME

#1
Hey guys, I just got a posting to 6 Supply RLC LAD REME in GUttersloh, Germany.

Anyone ever been posted there?
Whats it like?
Recent deployments? Planned deployments?
Is it Z-type accom?

I get the feeling im going to be bored out of mind, but I want to find out from people who have been there.

Guess if its boring I can just travel Europe till its over.

Cheers.

EDIT: Forgot to mention im an armourer.

oooh hark at her 'the ASM is my pal'

i think the lad means he'll be bored in his own feckin time not work, hence his idea of travelling europe if it turns out it is actually boring....................

i got the same impression as you Joe that Roscoe was worried Gutersloh would be boring.....

Roscoe i served in Gutersloh 94-97 and thoroughly enjoyed it, i was at the other camp Mansergh Bks and you will be at PRB but if you get about a bit and enjoy Germany you will be fine i'm sure. Hanover, Bielefeld, Paderborn and lots of other major cities are within an hour of Gutersloh.

I think most here will agree Germany is what you make of it, enjoy it and travel at the weekends, dont get stuck in camp doing the Club 47 and Sammies bar routine! (if they are still called that!!)

They currently have guys away. so it's rear party at the moment. The accomodation is single rooms with sink, but shit compared to all the other units in PRB. Hope you like your Phys as the ASM and OC do. USED to be a really good unit, how things change, but don't want to say any more about that. Gutersloh is Ok, plenty of things to do on weekend's, don't just stay in PRB.

Supply Regt ? RLC ? - can't see much call for an Armourer there..??
Or have 'things' moved along a bit ?

As a previous poster said - you will at least be a fitter Soldier - and that can't be bad - can it ?

Good luck mate - learn some German too - and 'look' in to the small villages...surprising that.. 8)

The Supply Regt's are probably the busiest in the RLC with pax deployed on both Telic and Herrick permanently.
That's good to hear !!

will definatly be busy all the time, most of it will have nothing to do with weapons. The regt is always deployed somewhere which leaves the rest of us with the joys of rear party.

Whats red and white, and goes up and down?
The barrier stag on mother humper :p
