Flybe Hannover to Southampton. You can get it cheap if you book it early enough, about 3 months in advance. They also have a frequent fliers thing. Have a look at the website. Just google flybe

Well lets see..

Steal a car from a petrol station just after it has been refueled.

Drive to Calais.

Stow away underneath the Eurostar, if you can get in there with all the Albainians and the like under there.

Jump off in Folkstone.

Get your self across to the M20 and car jack some little old lady and make her take you to Southhampton.

Total cost - 1.50 for a coffee whilst waiting for the first car.

Happy to help.

Get to your local O'Girks. They do a 3 day return on the Dunkerque - Dover ferry for 43 Euros. Of course for legal reasons you should at no point buy Jerry cans and fill them with tax free fuel bought using your fuel coupons instead of paying extortionate UK fuel prices for your return journey

Hannover to Dunkerque takes 5 and a half hours according to autoroute, Ferry is 2 hours and then it's 2 hours 15 mins to southampton. So if you get an early knock off on a friday (12ish) and taking into account the traffic will be crap then you should get there about 2 in the morning.

Assuming your return journey will take the same amount of time and being a good soldier you sorted your kit out for monday morning on the thursday evening if you left sunday morning you'd get back at a decent time.

The milage would work out roughly about 1100 miles which in my car would require 3 tanks of fuel costing 30 euros each.

Your total cost would be approximately 140 Euros

You'd be at home for approx 36 hours, say you get your head down as soon as you get in and sleep in till 10 then as you've got a long drive the next day you get your head down at midnight. You're only awake for 14 hours.

That's 10 Euros per hour.

Which is more than you get paid.

Can i just add that if you do the drive only every other weekend that'll have you doing 28600 miles a year minimum so your insurance will go up.

Oh yeah and don't forget to add the fact that everyone you work with will think you're a ****** for buggering off home every other weekend instead of doing the decent thing and getting mullered with them every weekend.

Why do you need to go home at teh weekend?

Like the Bull says, it will cost you a fortune for a very little amount of time. Flying in would be better (less chance of sleeping at the wheel and pranging).

How often do you plan on going home or is it just a one off ting?

Why most weekends? How about, flying her over for a few?

Or better still pick a weekend every month and have a long weekend of it. Knock it on the head on Fri (POETS day if poss), then come back on Mon/Tues. esp if you plan around future bankholidays/regt standdowns.

Much less of a rush about when you are home.

It is about QUALITY time with the Mrs, not grabbing an hour or two every weekend. Like the Bull (IIRC) has worked out, the hours you will be awake are going to be slim.

Don't know what your unit is like, but maybe fly her in to Germany every other weekend and keep her in your room, or book a B&B.

Also, if you don't mind me prying but why do you intend going home most weekends?

Do you need to go (ie she is preggers) or are you in "love"? And you promised?

Or do you think she will dump you if you don't go home every weekend?

Don't take it as an insult, please, just trying to figure out why you need to go home so often.

Is this your first posting away/ever?

Cause I'm sad and wet behind me ears.

having read the advice the bull has given you and the research he has done that is probable the best option but in my opinion
i would do the following
every weekend get yourself to club 35 pay your 50 bucks(saving approxamtly 30 quid ) which iwould then spend on the finer things in life like beer or my good friend johnny daniels "he will never let you down or f off with you best mate or trade you in for some rich civy "
and for what i can remeber their are plenty of nice n easy girls on camp long live beer and all who drinks her
