Future of British Army Garrisons Germany

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. I have heard on the grapevine that there is to be an announcement in the House of Commons today at 15.30hrs regarding the future of the British Army in Germany.
    My sources tell me it is not good news :(
    They tell me that numbers are to be drastically reduced. :(
  2. Don't tell me: 4 Brigade are coming home in the next 5 years?
  3. I wait with baited breath. What pearls of wisdom will the Government come up with now?
  4. Osnabruck to close ... QDG to move to sennelager ??????
  5. Its a bit overdue don't you think? How much money do we pour into the German economy when it could be spent at home, say in the North of England?
  6. The 4 Bde thingy is clearly true. However, the sums are not quite as bad as they look. If you account for an INFLOW of troops from UK there will be a net loss of 2200 servicemen from BFG, which is <10% of current strength. The only question which is still up for debate is whether Osnatraz or Munster get the chop. I know where you're coming from ptlman, but the truth is that the decision about which is to close still remains.
