accommodation in Germany

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. I am a journalist on a national newspaper working on a story about troops' accommodation in Germany. I have been told a lot of it is in poor condition.
    I was wondering if anyone out there had any pictures or could take any to show how bad it is??..........
  2. speak to the COs/unit press officers.
  3. Now you know that no serving member can have any contact with you ??
  4. Go on - tell us which paper so we can all write to your Editor
  5. ?! Accomodation in parts of BFG is better than my house, crazy fool... (And no that's not an official comment so bugger off)
  6. Why dont you get in your car, get the editor to buy a ferry ticket for you and go to the main gate of *********(insert name of any British Army Bks) and ask the lads on the gate if you can come in and take some pics.
  7. Are you really? Or are you an undercover Military Intelligence sort of person, trying to see which serving soldier is going to drop him or herself in it by talking to the press, in direct contravention of orders?

    Im Eichengrund, Wassenberg, was very nice in 1973-5.

    Is that the sort of thing you had in mind?
  9. oh its bad really bad.

    Especially when my block comes home drunk, throws up in the plants and swamps the bed. And has illicit affairs with fat birds weekly.

    Or is that the other way round?
  10. Mossbank bks was blinding. Mind you, it's all but closed now.
    Detmold was particularly bad, especially the 4 Armd Wksp transit accm. That's closed as well, though.

    Any of this helping?

    Unlike most of the people on here I have found most accomodation in Germany to be above standard.

    Those wives keep a lovely house when their husbands are away.
  12. hope hack1 isnt holding breath waiting for answer(would be nice to think he was)
  13. Thinking about it, would the w@nk booths in Deutschland be classed as accomodation if, someone..spent enough time in one? In that case, it's cramped, slightly soiled and smells of manfat but all the porn you'd ever need. Fantastic.
  14. I understand why people are slightly suspicious about this request but it is totally kosher. I work for a massively pro-troops paper and have been told the accommodation in Germany is not up to scratch. If that is the case we want to expose it and hopefully get something done about it.
  15. massively pro-troops paper

    one week, and then massively stabs us in the back the next
