Im getting posted to 33 Fd Hosp. Whats it like?

I was there when it first opened up in 1996, it was a really good place and a good laugh. Gosport is a pain in the arrse to get in and out of though.

Advice: Learn to drink like a fish and appreciate the taste of a pine fresh p1$$ cube in your pint. (Do they still do this or have times changed?)

get used to the feeling of salty air on your cheeks,

and the smell of canvas up your nostrils.

and to washing seagull crap off your car on a daily basis

I was there for four years as a nurse and had one of the best postings of my career. Gosport is a bit of a hole but the surrounding towns and cities make it a worthwhile place to live.

Get to know your canvas though as you'll be seeing lots of it!!!!

Very fond memories of 5+years in Gospit! Get out and about..the town centre is pants, Fareham is better. Visit Winchester, Chichester, Guildford, etc. not just Pompey and Southampton!

Haslar is gone now, but no reason not to enjoy your tour down there.... I'd go back!!

Good luck! :D

You'll find that it will remain open for business for a year or so yet

33 was my best posting...not bad for a non medic. Loved the area, the people and the views are argueably the best the forces have to offer.
