European Military Club Teams

As of Spring 2019 from the Illesheim team historian: "I believe that there are no fully active teams left in Germany and/or Europe. There are nucleus’s all around, and there are some groups that I believe do just an occasional 7’s, etc., but I do not know of any here that participate in any official leagues. Illesheim remains on paper as a member of Rugby Verband Bayern and the Deutsche Rugby Verband. I do not believe that is the case with Grafenwoehr/Vilseck (Rose Tower Titans), the old Ramstein Team (Kaiserslautern West?), or any remnants from Baumholder. I do not know of status of teams in Italy (Signorella and Vicenza had tried?), or the UK. There are players who still play locally (Stuttgart RC, some of the Heidelberg teams?, RC Mainz – for the Wiesbaden lads?, or locally in the UK), but not military teams."
