14 Sigs Op Granby

'fraid not, but I wish I did too - though I do have one of Merv F***** prints which he painted - signed by the chap too, though it's too big to scan in and post - sorry.

Remember all the pyro being let off??
 
As it's hung up downstairs in the den I'll have to do this from memory, it's various scenes from 14 Sigs deployment on Granby - det's setting up - Paddy D features in his Fez with MLRS being fired in the background, guarding PoW's, driving through the breach, LAD fixing panzers etc etc.

Merv F did the original, and there was a limited number of prints which were sold in the PRI, and I was lucky enough to get hold of one before being posted to 30 Sigs after we all came back.

Fook, i'd have loved to have got me hands on one of them, i was back in civvie street 3 weeks after returning from leave after Op G.

LAD fixing panzers, that would be our panzer, always fooked, think we did 4 pack lifts out there.

I remember Col from LAD saying @if the engine cuts out again, just twatt it with a tool fine adjusting' and you know what, it always got it going again.

And of course Fat Kev (the Toad) was towed all around the war on a set of hollybones, how I laughed. But not as funny as Dick Turpins war cry when he said 1/3 of us were going to die. regards JJ

Cool - was thinking of taking a photo of mine, so you beat me to it...

Possibly, can't quite remember - he was the Regt YofS, Merv the Swerve....
