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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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:
