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. After all your training and when you get to your barracks, how much room for stuff do you have? Any room for a pc and the likes?
  2. totally depends on where you are posted and how old the accomodation is, some have SLAM and it is all beand new and one man per room, other places you could be sharing

  4. Bear in mind that if it ain't tied down some bugger will nick it, so I'd wait to see where you go before you start bringing in the expensive white goods. Some of the accn is very nice indeed, but some of it makes you want to live in a basha in the local park.
  5. Lmao or you could go out and dig a little hole in the ground and live in there :D

    If you go to Bruggen/Javalin Bks in Germany,it's all (or was when I was there) single man apart from 1 or 2 old blocks.The blocks are 'H' shaped & the rooms in the middle on each side are larger than the rest,on average the size of your normal large box room at home.Put it like this,you could get a double bed in them & still have plenty of room.
  7. I was in Javalin Bks in one of the 232 blocks. and could not get a double bed in there :cry: . i had a sofa bed that i had to put away to get into my lockers.
    they did have a urinal in most rooms though :p .

    Javelin Bks however was plush compared to the blocks in Corsham.

    Were they the new blocks up by the NAAFI?
    I was in one of the older ones on the left going down Singly Strasse,Bk 67 if I remember,
    No sinks or pi$$ers in them tho...
  9. 'they did have a urinal in most rooms though'

    It's called a sink.

    I gathered that,Did'nt want to scare the newbee tho..


    Yes,you lock your lockers,hide your porn,lock the door when you leave & stick a note on the door.Same as when you go to work each day...
  13. I just thought with how tight the government are they'd have someone else in your room while your away for a few months you see.
  14. Carl depends where you are but often if you deploy as an augmentee (on your own away from your unit) or on a long course they make you pack your room up into MFO boxes that are then stored in the QM's.

    As for security, just make sure you have good kit insurance :roll:
  15. Cheers Dicso, I didnt think about insurance, thanks.
