    Best Unit: 16 Armd Fd Amb

    Worse Unit: 16 Armd Fd Amb

  3. I can honestly say I enjoyed all my postings. Unfortunately this news will not be of benefit to anyone else as I was only ever posted to hospitals, all of which (CMH, QEMH and BMH Rinteln) are now closed :cry: However, if pushed I would say that CMH was the worst, mainly because of the fact they were so draconian. In the 1980s QAs with less than 12 months in the army still had to be in bed by 10.30, and were bed checked. It didn't matter how old they were. As far as I know the same did not apply to the RAMC.
     
  4. I also used to try and get the young nurses into bed by 10.30 otherwise it was time for a keebab and the long walk home, alone :cry:
