Over here, we're told that we're staying for the moment - certainly until 08, probably until 10 - possibly later . . .
But then . . . what do we know?! Personally, I reckon that the Regt will remain in Germany for as long as 1 Div are here. It may not be 1 Regt as we know it now however, I think it unlikely that the Div will do without ANY aviation . . .
If you know better . . . I'd love to hear the latest!!!
I was there when one of the Powers that be from JHC made a comment about project Belvedere and future basing options. If you read between the lines about the comments he made is basically the light is fading on all them tax free cars. Thats why I quickly bought my car and ran back to UK before the rush!!!
Sorry Ralf...........Not me mate.........You see, I may be true blue but am in a posn to stay here, as I said to 2018. It would be a damn shame though if 1 Regt were to go. Where I am now means I can always nip down to GT to find some sanity and have an intelligent conversation. That can be difficult in the present location. However even if they do shoot the tyres of the tax free fun bus, it will still be cheaper to live over here. As long as one fecks the Naafi off at the high port or one tells "Pay as you dine" to "Save while I eat out".
