Hello I am starting at CIC at Catterick on 10th August. I am 27 and have a long term partner and two young children (3 & 2 yrs) The battalion I am joining (2 Royal Anglian) I am aware are based in Germany at present. And that my family and I will have to go there. We are all looking forward to the new start and the new scenery. My partner is, I understand taking a massive step in her life to support my decision to join the Army and I am just hoping some of you had any tips or advice for girlfriends/wives with kids that have taken that step later on in life (she's 29) no military background. Are there things in place to aid easier adaptability for the wives and children in Germany? Or is it just a case of her finding her feet and working things out for herself etc! She pretends she's not worried but I know better. Sorry for the drabness but if I can help put her mind at rest in some way I'll be happy. Also most importantly do they play netball in Germany?
