Joined 6Plt. 'B' coy 1 Wessex in 1977............There are still at least two serving members who were on my recruits cadre all them years ago. [how many cap badges have they been through!]
Yes, they do have reunions, when they do, they advertise them in 'Soldier ' magazine.
Did my Recruit cadre at New Zealand Farm. Still serving, I hit 50 next Jan.
