leave the missus to sort out the moving in /you go down to the bull/or dolphin/in Illchester and settle down to some scrumpy/tops :thumright: and when your sober the next day /both visit ST barts :angel4:
No probs with MQs at Heron. Allocated mine on Taranto Hill within two weeks of joining.
Mind you, had just done 18 months unaccompanied Windies.
Second round, again allocated within two weeks, this time Wessex Road, I had just finished a 2 year GSC, including 12 months FES.
But then I was gens. The wafoos had a much harder time!
PS This was (1) 1961, and (2) 1973, so I guess it may be a bit different now. Hows about contacting the MQ people, they may well know what is the current situation.
only place i got to go "round again" on an outmuster for being 5 minutes late after travelling up from sultan to hand the MQ back i hope the DHE guy i had is long gone was 5-6 years ago. as for the house's i'd say blackthorne close side is nicer. most of the houses are new and well built the older flats/masinoettes are OK too.
I lived on Wessex Road, far away from the camp to feel you were getting away and close to town. I don't know what rank you are or how many kids, we were ratings with 1 child but the fact we had a dog got us a 3 bed house rather than the 2 bed flats there! I had a friend in the flats and they were not so good!
You mean DHE Warminster surely, there isnt such an office at Yeovilton.
I can only speak for the Ilchester FQ and Wessex Road in Yeovil. In Ilchester, there are two main patches. Taranto Hill and Broadsword Park. The Broadsword park FQ are 3 or 4 bedroom. Internally the Toranto Hill FQ are laid out better with a dining room and a gate to the back garden. The Broadsword park FQs look great from the outside, individually styled (!) but internally lack adequate storage.
