best and worst posting

[/b]what has been your best and worst posting?
my best posting is cyprus, im currently on my 2nd tour here and my worst posting has got to be shape in belgium, family werent happy there and after about 6 months there i was sick of it. has anyone else had a another tour to somewhere you have already been?

All of my tours have been good ones..

I am still a strong believer of "A posting is what you make it". Of course there are better places to be than others. However what annoys me is current state of affairs with people slagging off everywhere they go.

Get a pair and get out if you can't adapt to your surroundings!

PS... Gald you're enjoying cyprus, I hope it fcukin rains (jealousy)

:p

hated bunde when i first got there, then it twigged and was the best
Was Bunde your actual posting or was that your quarter area? I take it that was a Signals Posting back then as I was attached to 1 DIV in Herford 5 Years ago and no Bunde well? Did there used to be a Signals Regt out of Herford near to Bad Salzlufen?

After a post like this I'd normally be loathe to slag off any posting, but one that springs instantly to mind is Londonderry, Ebrington Barracks. A shithole to the bitter end.

Bunde was my actual posting, 33 sqn RCT, part of the old 2 ADTR, we were co located in Birdwood Barracks, with 2 Div Signal Regiment.

I know there were a number of memebers of 7 sigs from herford quartered in Bunde at the time but I was single at the time so didnt get into the pad areas much.
