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. Does anyone know of the whereabouts of "17 RVD BAOR" in the 60's and what they did?
     
  2. did a quick search on google - it was an raoc unit and it was in germany - try typing into a searchengine and see what coughs up
     
  3. I believe it was the forerunner of 17BVD at Recklinghausen in Germany - it was an RAOC vehicle depot. I've also seen references to 17 Vehicle Battalion RAOC.

    Hope this helps.
