Sorry if this is the wrong place for this question,

In the camp at Dhekelia what currency is used Euro's or Sterling?

Thanks for any help,

RH, I am on the other side of the Island, where Sterling is NOT accepted anywhere. The nearest there is to Sterling in the Cypriot pound, which has been phased out over the last few months. I have visited DHK a fair few times, and have never seen/heard of sterling being used there either. Although I am not suggesting BAS is incorrect, you might be safer ensuring you have Euros in your wallet. If you need any local knowledge/Airport routes, feel free to PM.

Fantastic thanks for the information, I'll get me some Euro's on Monday then. If you can suggest how to impress the PWRR that would be helpful but I think thats about it!

Unless you can tell me the best way to get from Oxford station to RAF Brize Norton?

Once again thanks for the help and quick responses,

RustyH

Impress the PWRR? Start by drinking a pint of your own urine, go to town and fight some locals, then fall asleep in a gutter covered in your own faeces, before drunkenly locating your car parked at the local knocking shop and driving it into a wall.

That's almost guaranteed to impress!

Hi I am also on the Batallion visit but havent heard anything about the flight times etc., have you received further information? I got the letter regarding the kit that we need to bring along but nothing after that.

No nothing yet, last email I sent they told me they were waiting on the confirmation of the flight booking that was 10th March I'm hoping there will be something in the post tommorrow or its getting rather late.

Its not just the flight but the rail warrant as well, so I've got no choice but to wait luckily I lived a minute or too from RHQ so worst comes to the worst Thursday I'll give them a phone and head down.

Most of the battalion deployed in AFG so HERRICK Rear in charge and difficult to get hold off. Try phoning RHQ PWRR if they organised the trip!!! Use your initiative.

No. is 01227 810050 and tell Maj Martin to pull his finger out. (Maybe not if you want to get in). Alternatively e-mail them. Address available on Army Net or cos I'm such a good bloke, rhq@123pwrr.co.uk.

Wolverines comments bought back some fond memories, clearly talking about 1 PWRR in Germany. Wouldn't try it in Cyprus, the Russian Mafia tend to be slightly less tolerant than the Volks Polizei.

RHQ did organise it and I've been pestering them on and off for a week with no answer, untill today that is everythings sorted now.

Thanks for all your help
