10 Sigs 225 Sqn for you then. Been quite a few years since I was there when it was ECM. The lads and lassies there like it most of the time work hard play hard attitude but like any unit can be made better depending on SHQ.

I know the new Badge at 12 Mech. Top guy so the unit will prob be good to work at.

What's wrong with their hierarchy then?

Nothing! I have no idea what the hierarchy is like. It's been a few years since I was there.

1 Mech's in Tidworth. I'd rather be posted to the Orkneys to count waves for 22 years than ever live in Tidworth again.

Bulford (12 Mech) isn't far behind.
Don't mock the Orkneys. I used to live just across the water from there for a year and spent a lot of time over there!!!

Lovely place though a bit windy!

1 & 12 mechs will be your standard Bde Sig Sqn fuckaround fest, I know a few guys at both and they constantly moan about it, most of them have signed off too. Also, don't know about Tidworth, but the Pads in Bulford are a complete lottery. The only nice ones are on Picton Bks and they've just been renovated. I'm currently in the flats and it's like a rough council estate. I would ask to move, but then I'd end up getting put onto the new Canadian estate that is still being built. They've just whacked the houses up without letting the foundations set, they're flimsy pre-fabricated boxes with bricks around them and once they've finished building them they go to grade 1, so say hello to £500 a month quarter charges.

10 Sigs is dependant on which part you want to go to. 605Tp in Andover is a good job, but the heirarchy leave a lot to be desired and a couple of mates there have been working some mental shifts including weekends and BH's in the run up to the Olympics. Corsham is supposed to be good, as is 225 (I was there the same time as SgtSlaughter), but be prepared to go on tour with 225.

Fixed that for you.

No charge :)

Was the best 1* I ever worked for back in 2006/8. Agree that the Comd has a big influence on the Sqn

I heard good things about the previous Brigadiers, but the current one is of the 9/12 Lancers variety. I think he went to sleep in 1988 and then woke up about 6 months ago to take over as the commander.

Armour is the way forward was a bad idea getting rid of all your BD!

I left 1X last year and couldn't get away faster! Having been away on tour on attachment and come back to find the hierarchy had changed and in their place was a collection of back stabbing, one upping, sadistic twisted barstewards who were hell bent on turning it into ATR Tidworth (215 Circus Squadron). HOWEVER. Some seniors from my current posting have since moved on to Tidworth and on last speaking to, were trying to correct this... good luck to them! As Gaz said, the pads were very much a lottery with some deserving to be condemned but also some rather nice (albeit pricey) newer pads. There was a shortage though and some were being put up in pads all over the place - neveravon, larkhill, blandford(!!) and private places to boot.

Considering where you got posted to though, its a case of "out of the frying pan and into the fire"!!

Acidcrash knows what I mean about the pads, hes seen the run down castle greyskull I have to live in.
