Return to Woolwich

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. Sorry, not the Royal Regiment I'm afraid, just I

    After an 21 yr absence, last visited was last day at depot, 11 Feb 1988, I am returning for an evening and was wondering what to expect, has it changed much ? Ar the woodentops in charge ? Do you reckon I can visit my old bedspace ?
     
  2. If your bed space was in the training blocks then you won't see it as they have all but gone. The whole site is all Z type now. It really looks like a ghost town.
     
  3. Although from the photos Wellyhead has been sending me for the last 24 hours, the Kings Arms is still going strong, and the main square is just as long as it ever was!

    Did some training recently at a disused camp in Warwickshire. The blocks there were obviously from the same catalogue as Woolwich. Kept having flashbacks and breaking out in a cold sweat.
     
  4. Any chance you could put some of your pictures on this thread please Wellyhead?

    Thanks in anticipation.
     
  5. That would be good if he could. Bring back some good/bad memories :D
