#2
So whilst many soldiers continue to live in poor accommodation, millions was spent upgrading a site that was in bloody good nick in the first place.

The RAF's PAYD is pretty good so I hear....

Also SF deserve the best facilities the MOD can throw at them (I mean RAF Regt obviously).

Bearing in mind that some of the "fellas" have been down there for a few weeks, I doubt all the work was done by civvy companies.

Can't wait to see Fatbadge's reaction to it.

""I'm 25 metres away from my meals, 50 metres from work and 400 metres from the gym. I can't really go wrong, can I?"

Nuff said - the Ryan Air Force.

You have to wonder which bright spark at the press release office decided to run a story that suggests the RAF were "slumming" it to begin with.

At my last (and final unit) we had accomodation blocks that were falling apart because the money to build more new blocks ran out half way through redoing the camp. One lad had to be taken to hospital because in one of the portacabin blocks he got out of the shower and fell through the floor. But as long as the polyester mafia are happy who gives a ****.

If you remember, the Crabs need their sleep. I distinctly remember being told that the worst that could happen if I had a bad night's sleep was me dropping a pencil...

It is genuinely a great location, but you miss the point MOD/RAF SOP is to spend lots of cash on somewhere and then sell it (at a loss)......

Still it's easy to get into town

400 metres to the gym, judging from the new recruit thread there are a few cobwebs in that building.

If that's not a "we've got to much cash and well deserve some big cuts" shermuly popped over the RAF I don't know what is.

PS the RAF are all cnuts, if my opinion on them was a little unclear.

RAF chooses to look after its people, Army doesn't. Nothing new in that, as the Army's tendency to jump into any bed vacated by the RAF has consistently shown. The rules are the same for all (including those on hotels on dets), its how you choose to use them that's the point.

******* right, being in the Army this makes my blood boil.

I say enough "ArmyNET"isation and officialisation of ARRSE and ban these fecking feeds, with their propaganda! Why the hell are they on here anyway?

There is probably more green and civies at Northolt nowadays ...the accommodation was improved and expanded to absorb the closure of Mill Hill.

Besides, 'RAF unit gets improved at great expense' is usually closely followed by 'Army takes over nice shiny RAF unit'.

Ok, if Northolt is the RAF's place to be, what's the British Army's No1 location ? (genuine question)

Having read this on DII today I'm surprised at the amount of living on camp personnel quoted in the article..

Vertical, I too have a spacious room and I am glad that the RAF are looking after you. I trust that they are also treating you like a grown up and worshipping your amazing rack of miniatures. Class is priceless.

Great thread. If we had an Olympic sport for winging, dripping,whining. moaning, gum grinding, tearful foot stamping and hissy fit honking, the place to look for champions would be on the boards of ARRSE whenever the Royal Air Force gets a mention.
Dry your eyes ladies, and give the old noses a good blow, re apply some new lippy,and untwist your thongs, you will feel so much better. =-*=-*=-*

From my experiance of living on an Army camp, if the squaddies stopped going around having a dump in the baths and thinking its funny, maybe someone above would treat you like an adult and give you pleasure of some nice, new, plush accommadation!!!!! :muhaha:
