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. Anyone give a newbie some info or tips on Elmpt?
  2. Yes - Don't go there.
  3. Thank you for your constructive comment
  4. It's right on the Dutch border and a brand new autobahn right on the front door will soon be completed (it was planned in the mid 70s). It was known as RAF Brüggen until 2002 and there are still plenty of buildings from that era. Nearest biggish town is Mönchengladbach in Germany but lots of people ease over the border to Roermond.
  5. Thank you.

    Any idea what the MQ's are like?
  6. Generally very good as an absolute fortune was spent on them. Facilities on camp also excellent and area has loads of things to do.

    My family all had a fantasticaly happy tour there and would go back tomorrow.

  7. Theres your answer :D
  8. Times really have changed then. Next you'll be saying Pay As You Starve was a success too... :wink:
  9. A lot, if not all, of the Quarters have been done up in the last few years. There is an open air swimming pool, bowling alley and average sized shop, on camp. A primary school, with a secondary school 20 mins away (by bus(laid on) to JHQ in Rheindahlen, JHQ also has the American PX and the big NAAFI, with your usual car show rooms and furniture shops. Roermond has a big outlet shopping centre. Elmpt itself has a travel agents, golf course, a cross country vehicle training area, a fishing lake, car club, gliders and model aircraft flying (if thats your bag), clay pigeon range, and sh1t load of Wooded real estate to wander around. Although i'd recommend ducking at the back end of camp as the local birds of prey like to swoop down at head height when people run past their nesting area's
  10. Thank you all.

    Any info is very much appreciated!
