PX in the UK

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. Thought this would be best placed in here. I fancy some Oreo cookies and some of those zillion flavour jelly beans oh and some jerky etc etc
    Are MoD Form 90 holders allowed onto American bases to plunder the PX over here in Blighty?
    Mmmmmm Oreo cookies
    (Thanks in advance as always Catch)
     
  2. Why don't you go to Tesoo's where you can buy
    a) Oreo Cookies
    b) Beef Jerky
    c) Jelly Belly's

    No, MOD Form 90's are not sufficient to obtain access to Spam PX's in the UK. At a minimum, you need a NATO Travel Order to get into one and even then that doesn't always work (according to my boss who is a Spam).
     
  3. Matelot, have the regulations changed recently? When I was still in the UK (early 2004), I got into Lakenheath with a temporary(!) MOD 90.
     
  4. In Germany you now need to have registered and details/proof of your ID sent to the Septics. If you turn up, no matter how genuine your case but your name is not on the list, then you get a tablet.
