Discussion in 'RAC' started by WC_Bard, Jan 10, 2007.

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. Looking at joining up & would like to be stationed in Germany.

    Which units are Formation Recce or combined with MBT & are to be in Germany for the long haul?

    I understand that a few are coming back in 2008.

    First question on Arrse, so many thanks for your response.
  2. QRL are replacing 9/12 in Hohne soon.
    I think QDG are returning to UK without replacement when 4 Bde go.
    I'm not sure who is doing Recce for 20 Bde though, maybe someone can shed light?
  3. Thanks for the response Nige.
    Good to see an Aussie helping another out.
  4. Stll not sure if QDG are coming back to UK in 2008 , the LD's seem to think so .We think we are moving elsewhere in Germany.Maybe able to tell you more next week when QDG get back to work.
  5. Either QDG or LD for 20 Bde in Paderborn/Sennelager.
  6. QDG for the next three years at least
  7. Using light is not a good idea when you are on a recce. Gives your position away.

  8. So has it been confirmed which FR units are staying in the uk and which are staying in germany etc?
  9. QDG are moving to Sennelager end of this year.Dempsey barracks.
  10. Just found out that the QRL's move which was forecast for July/August 2009 has now moved to 2010.

    They will be moving to Hohne and taking over from 9th/12th Royal Lancers
  11. No confirmed that its QDG to sennelager this year.
  12. so what is happening with the other regiments what are the light dragoons doing? staying in swanton morley?
  13. Duty rumour in Blandford is that 9/12L are moving in here 2009 / 2010.
  14. so no one knows what happening with light dragooons then?
