RLC Regiments up north?

Discussion in 'RLC' started by Steve_Fleming, Feb 14, 2012.

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. I've heard that 12 LSR could be moving up north but don't know if it's true or not because I've also heard they could be moving to Bicester, also I've been having a look into 8 Regiment and it looks like they are based at Marne barracks near catterick is this still the case or not.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that helps
     
  2. I hope that isn't a very poor wah.

    Currently RLC north is Bicester. 8 Regt were in Catterick but moved back to Germany in 2008 and are currently sat in Münster. I say currently as they are disbanding next month. If I were to offer some general advice to you, it would be to not get too wrapped around the axle in terms of where your first posting is, but just to get there and work hard to learn your trade and gain respect from those already there. If you get your heart set on going somewhere, the Army will disappoint you. If you have any sort of choice, try and get out to Germany while we still have units out there. The chance to live in a foreign country with brothels, excellent beer, an almost total absence of licencing laws and no speed limit on the autobahn (motorways) will be worth it.

    By the way, shit PERSEC.
