Definitely worth a watch - cut into six episodes and all easily locatable on YouTube.

Proper Royal Corps bullshit, as well as some very hard-core motorcycling. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it, although didn't see anyone I knew.

Agree but just Royal Corps bullshit and again and again.

However never knew Ozzy Chapman tried for the white helmets . 3rd or 4th you tube video.

He was famed in 1983/84 , he bought a big Jag for about 500 DM. We paid him to drive us to the ports to go on leave, He would take our petrol coupons and blast his way to the sea ports.

Shame his mrs liked a bit of single cock, so as he was driving , she had a driving.

What was bullshit was getting rid of them without a viable advertising method to replace them. Whilst it was a complete waste of manpower, it still put a large advertising hoarding on the major highways and byways every season. What have we got as a Corps now...flute all!!! It's not as if we can rock up with a Challie or warthog, or sniper rifles, or big guns, or drones etc. After getting rid of Humpf Bahadurs in Blandford, this is the biggest fail the Corps has made in the last 24 years...and maybe Falcon, and maybe not grabbing HVAC or drones, and possibly getting rid of trade specialisation and **** me the list is endless.

Purple helmets FFS. Last OC was a disaster waiting to happen, but that was back in the day .
 
My 15 minutes of fame.....I’m in there somewhere....
 
Christ I was a handsome devil...... :cool: :cool: :cool: :rolleyes:
 
Mind , I did get two years with the AAC Horrogate KAPE tours, one in Scotland, Edinburgh and another in the north west. Carlisle. We also had the White helmets. Most of them were on the team for the shagging.
 
It was 1986 IIRC, not a lot of fond memories of the course, 2 solid weeks of being fcuked about from dawn to midnight. Spent more time pushing knackered B40s & CANams about the moors than riding them in the first week...

Had quite a few nasty offs as well. Culminating in shagging my knee at the end of the second week when the tableau fell apart & I was still attached to a bike rack..... by my foot.....

Acute lack of interest prevents me from watching the videos but they had a pink helmet with "Cheb End" inscribed on the back for the most dismal candidate of the day.
 
Are you the one that’s careering through the hedgerow heading towards where that big bird was last seen?
IIRC I did spend an awful lot of my time out of control heading into various hedgerows, gulleys & Brooks, however, chubby chasing was at that time an aspiration. At that age, I still naively believed skinny was the answer......
