Stupid question: Paderborn - German or UK power sockets

My lad is due to join his first Batallion in Paderborn (Germany) in December. As the base is long-standing does the accomodation have standard UK 230v power sockets or the standard Euro sockets?
I would imagine the euro sockets. Although I was last there in 1993.

I'd guess euro sockets also, but this can be got round by getting an adaptor and putting it on a UK extension lead - so only need to purchase one adaptor.
It is the two-pin euro socket (called Schuko).

He could get a masterplug extension from Argos and change the UK plug for a German one. That way he won't need to buy load of German plugs.

By the way, it is cheaper to buy loads of these:

than loads of these:


Came for a wonder and found an argos shop - can we buy on line.
ok, cheers guys.

These look cheap enough url=]CPC Components[/url] at £0.84 + VAT!
If you go down to the HIVE at the Naffi you can do a exchange system,one english for one german and vice versa when you get posted out of germany
