11 Sig Regt - Helles Barracks 88

Hello,
Thought I'd start a thread on those who went through Helles in the late 80's - 24828938 me. Joined as Adult in Feb 88 (2 Troop) - the charming, laconic and gentle Sgt Scottie S was Tp Sgt with Cpl John "face peeler" L... etc - anyone out there - would love to see pics again etc. I got back trooped too - to 5 Troop; well I was a Clerk; it was expected.

May 1988 1 Troop. A young 17yr old scrout. Still a scrout now 19yrs later :)
 
Have a few old photos from 2 troop, jan 89. Will scan and post them for nostalgia sake, on the off chance anyone recognises themselves. I don't think persec will be compromised with 18 yr old pictures? Maybe one of the MOD's could advise. No names obviously. Just actually looked at my old troop photo, and the contrast between then and now is obvious if only for the copious amounts of facial hair on the troop staff versus the lack of medals on show!

I became a number in early October 89 in 4 Troop. We were one of the first to do runs and BFTs in trainers and I had the pleasure being told by idiots who'd been in the army two months longer than me it was much tougher in their day!

I saw a chap from 4 Troop in the Sgts mess at the RSA weekend - he's a WO2 now.

Ferocious 4! Apr 83. Sadly the numpty that designed our troop t-shirts used the face of Tony the Tiger as the 'ferocious' tiger image - hence we were nicknamed Ferocious Frosties by the other troops in trg. Doh!

worst troop ever man management was sh1te

our opposite number 4 troop beat us at everything nearly a clean sweep we managed to win one out of the three log races

They had Scottie Sherrard who was better than the three bellends we had put together

worst time ever in the Army 8 sigs was a great time and every posting afterwards
