Hi Jonwilly, is you the jonwilly smuggled across the Austrian border in the boot, on a ski trip to Garmisch? I can remember someones watch falling of his rist when raiding the back of Santos' locker. And then accussing him of nicking it the following mornin when he made him open his locker. Fun days at 4reg, great game of shock, can remember the greenies buying loads of rounds. Nice to see the banter ticking over between the workers and sherkers!
Me no jonwilly smuggled across any border in any boot at any time any where.
Moi be jonwilly 9-4 Regt Wksp Detmold 80-86.
Never knew of any of the Greenslime buy beers for anyone , most where to tight to fork out for their own booze, not that any ever had a rep as a serious boozer.
Filth only bought beers when they lost at shock, they never cottoned on to the fourteenth beer mat trick, so they bought a few extra rounds, especially FatLew (Cpl slime). Confusing I know, 4Regt had 5 Lews a one point (86-89), Grandad Lew (654AAC SSgt), WKSP CC Lew (REME SGT), FatLew (654Sgt slime), FatLew (669?Cpl slime) and meself 654Cpl grubber.
Mail call used to be a hoot!
Lew Lewis( Grandad), had the most untidy bunk of anyone I ever knew.
He had to move 'things' from the floor to his bed to get out and up of a morning and then empty the bed of a night so he could get in.
Did you do 654 Falklands tour with McQueen, when we lost John Bolt and Rodger ?
I did my FI trip with 657 82/3. I got to 654 Jan86 & left Oct89 with my 3rd tape. I never had the pleasure of meeting John & Roger. This will be my last coms until the new year, so, seasons greetings & best wishes to all for the new year. :o
