Bfg thinning out

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. BBC News - Army troop relocations announced by Ministry of Defence

    It looks like the sleepy Lincolnshire village of Cottesmore is about to get a rude awakening after decades of genteel RAF types.

    2 R ANGLIAN and 7 Regt RLC in the same barracks? That should be interesting!

    On a sadder note, farewell it seems to Celle and Munster.
  2. So the robust lasses of Cottesmore will finally get some cock rather than cocks?

  3. AL1: Cottesmore is in Rutland, ie beyond the back of beyond. The Angle Irons will have to travel a bit to get some entertainment.
  4. Oakham?
  5. Young people joining up now will really have a taste of travel and exotic postings - Catterick, Bulford, Aldershot, RAF Kinloss and RAF Cottesmore.

    King highly exciting, not - and people used to complain about Berlin and Osnabruck!
  6. Oi! I resemble that remark!! It's bloody exotic up here in Kinloss! Some of the local mutants have very exotic mutations. I'm so very glad i got to spend 6 glorious years in Osnabruck. Best years of my life.

    Oh yes. 'There's nuffink to do in Berlin' was heard on many occasions. Sad but true.

    The Army will change the names. RAF Cottesmore could be Shangri-La Barracks or some such.
  8. The travel prospects for future generations look quite grim. A posting to Catterick with the odd tour of the Falklands is no ones idea of fun. Sadly, there is a distinct lack of beer soaked and or sunshine postings these days which is a shame as it used to be one of upsides of life in the forces.
  9. Don't worry we'll keep the infantry in line.

    Then I wish you good luck.
  13. I wonder if they'll start re-vamping some of the old trg camps in preparation for the rest when they leave BFG?
