where to go

#1
about to start my phase 2 in gib a week monday and been told on the second day got to choose which regiment i would like to go to. my sec commander in phase 1 was from 59 commando and said i sould go there but not too sure myself as i would like to go to germany so i can get in some skiing any advice on the best regiment to go to for a good time and skiing in that order. have a choice between uk or germany and then if i want to specialise in armoured, amphib, eod, 59 or air assault. bee lookin at 28 what do you all think

So,

You'd rather go to Germany than 59 so you can go SKIING? :?

Methinks you might want to take a closer look at what the Commando role entails.

Once you've tasted life in germany the only spec role you'll want is armoured so you can stay in germany
And the thoughts of 59 and the likes will be just a distance memory

I didin't think you got a choice where you went unless you did go 59 or 23. I had a few mates put in for EOD and they got Germany and another mate who put in for amphib but got 23.
I told them I wanted to stay within the UK and got Germany. Surely they just send you where they need your trade. Anyhow if you have any intention of 59 or 23 then don't wait till you've been posted to germany cause like HEART_STOPPER said

Is it just me who thinks that was a paperwork fcuk up what with it being 23 Amph?
Your prob right but I know the poor lad got to 23 reg and got put straight onto his pre para. He tells me he didn't want to do it but I have my suspicous especially as I thought you had to voulnteer for it first.

I've heard good things about 28

Waterbeach is quite a good posting. Being Air Support is a good role, especially if you are a plantie. Waterbeach is a pretty good location, centralish in the UK and you've got Cambridge 3 miles away which is a good night out.

And if you get stuck for transport, look in one of the EWS tanks, there's usually a bike or several in there :D

Funny you should say that Knocker!! At Hohne the first blocks you came to through the gates was the Sigs blocks and they were forever leaving their bikes outside unlocked and it was a fair distance down to our block so the first thing we did was take them cycle pissed down to the block usually going head first over the bars at least twice then dumping them outside the block where they would either be collected by the sigs lot the next morning or a certain full screw from our block would if he like the look of them strip them down and send them back to the UK!! He must have stockpiled quite a few!! Anyway cheers Sigs for not having me walk home after a good night on the ale and for the rest of the squadron not having to walk home!!

Waterbeach was a good posting but it's not like it used to be. Same as anywhere probally. As long as the blokes you are with are good then you can have a great time. I managed to enjoy 63 trg sp sqn at Gib cause the blokes at the time were fantastic. Some great nights on the piss.!!!!
