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. Hello,

    I'm a bit new to this, so hope I'm doing everything right!

    My hubby has been given a list of possible postings & is quite new to the army, so trying to have a look at where they are in the country etc. Found out where half of them are, but are struggling with the following:


    They may not have spelt these right - this might be why we're having trouble finding them. But if anyone knows where these bases are ....any help would be most appreciated. Would be great to have a bit of heads up before he has to hand in his posting preference form

  2. Do you mean "Brawdy"? If so then it's in SW Wales.
  3. Ive never heard of any of them!
  4. Weeton is in Lancashire.
  5. Kaneton = Kineton is in Warwickshire
  6. It could be I suppose, but I don't know how they could have got it that wrongly spelt!!
    Thanks for help
  7. Peremdown = Perham Down is in Andover, Wiltshire
  8. "perham down" is in Andover, Wiltshire

    too slow :(
  9. Fuk off, this has to be a wah. Or someone has married a right thick bint?

    I assume this not a wah. If it is it's a pretty poor one !

    Therefore to be helpful, I think you might mean these locations:

    Kaneton - Kineton
    Wheaton - Weeton
    Broadie - Brawdy ?
    Peremdown - ???
    Alderstone - Aldershot or Aldergrove

    If your other half has an ArmyNet account he could look up the units in those locations.

    I hope this helps.
  11. thanks everyone - I've been stressing over this for ages by myself. Can't believe they've managed to spell them so wrong. Think I've got it all sorted now. Perham Down is pretty close to us also, so this is a bonus
    I think the last one is Aldergrove as Aldershot is also on the list.

    thanks again
  12. What Cap badge is he?
  13. AGC ETS?
  14. I thought he must be AGC, REME or RAMC.

    Oh, to a get a chioce of posting..............
  15. Army Manning have spelt most of the names wrong. Not a Wah. My Mrs has the same list given to her by Glasgow. She is a Cambridge Med grad, and she couldnt figure it out either.
