13th/18th royal hussars

#3
Some units were deployed to beef up other regiments, the 17/21 put squadrons into other regiments battle groups, the 13/18th may well have done the same

just reading a book that says that they deployed for the first gulf war ? true or not?
Not true mate, we were stuck in Tidworth watching it on the telly. The closest we got was cleaning all the shitty sand filled QDG wagons which we inherited on moving to Wolfenbuttel in '91.

If I remember correctly, the bandies went out there though. Back when every Regt had a band... :wink:

Don't remember that one mate. I was lucky and went to Cyprus with A Sqn (2nd Tp with Sharkey Wiles) in '91 so missed the worst of the cleaning. I was a mere sprog back then anyway! :wink:

Oh and Hellequin is a name I took from a Bernard Cornwell novel- apparently it's old French which roughly translated means 'Troop of Devils' horsemen', a name given to mounted archers in the 100 years war. Random and has nowt to do with my real name I'm afraid!

Yes mate, joined the regiment in Tidworth in '89 straight to 2nd Tp A Sqn, people like Sharkey, Muscles Watson, Poppa Cooke in the troop and Geoff Thornton was SSM, Mez Merrills SQMS... Happy days! Stayed with A Sqn until amalgamation and then went to C in Hohne.

Long time ago but vaguely recognise your name.

Ernie, Stables but often A sqn boot tp.

Masher seem to remember Bsqn painted their wagons ready, but no go and the bandies did go as medics.

i recall going to tidworth in 1987/8 i think :? as a 14 yr old cadet in the 13/18.

Thanks to whoever it was back then that took a load of us into the block and let us watch German porn!

2 guys actually joined from my home town, I'm pretty sure they are still in.

Worked alongside some 16/5 gents in GW1. Top blokes. Could not understand the need for bulled up riding boots, spurs and mess silver in a scimitar though.
