Going 38 ripon

#1
Just found out last week I'm off to 38 on the 15th April. I cant wait to start there. I'm just glad I'm not stuck in tv troop for 4 months like some other lads. Whats 38 like? I've been told its one of the best UK postings. Any info about it appreciated. Cheers

Welcome to the Corps and ARRSE, although I never served at 38 I wish you the best of luck. Hopefully you will be able to pass your Basic fitness tests unlike some newbies on here. :D

UBIQUE

38 was quality when i was there & the area is tip-top also.

enjoy your time there because i have heard that being in the province is toilet now & will be even worse when all the benefits are taken away as well.

laters.

So I take it you will be flying round the BPFT course when you get back?

We know that 21 are moving to Ripon, with 38 moving to NI allowing 25 to re-role to Air Support (as per FAS)

Do we know where 25 will be living? Just curious, like...

I hated the place ,fantastic town ,down the sewers for a few on to bronties
pizza house for a garlic pizza with extra garlic with flash G*rd*n and watch the clumsy beekeeper Jock L£$g head butting people and missing only to break his nose again :roll: :roll: lots of Ripon orphans ,place empty at weekends ,good bunch of lads though ,got to have transport though , I didn't and it was a nightmare to get any where, 9 hour on the train to get home but if you can get out and about do it loads to see and explore ,if you surf close to the coast also hills and lakes not too far away ,
don't just sit and fester you will become twisted and jack the lot in I did :!: :!: :!: an have sort of regretted it a bit
just go and enjoy yourself ,don't know what the security threat is now in the province but that is a beautiful place ,ahhhhh magilligan point(sp) in february

Ended my time at Ripon and I enjoyed it there, plenty of pubs, taxi ride home not to expensive, ang plenty of scope for getting your rocks off (with the beer goggles of course). Plus if you can talk someone into driving, York is a bloody good night out and not that far away.

Bloody good fishcakes from a chippie just by the cathederal! Not the normal mashed potato stuff! However, I was on a cadre there some 20 odd years ago!
