didnt they they become 220 Sig Sqn of 21 Sig Reft (AS) with L troop being Laarbruch (harrier), H troop was Bruggen (Tornado) K Troop was Wildenrath (Phantom) and G Troop was Guttersloh (Harrier) also O Troop was at laarbruch but were all rad ops and handbags...
No the troops listed above formed 3 Squadron which was 4 mainly Telemech troops one at each Airfield as mentioned above but as well as O troop at Laarbruch for operators there was N troop for mechs like its sister troops at Wildernrath, Bruggen and Gutersloh.
However K Troop at Wildenrath was the full of the most professional and best looking mechs.
Strange I started a Wildenrath 15 years ago as my first posting and now find my self back there with a lot of changes unfortunately
Anyone intrested you can still fly to Laarbruch but it is now civil and known as Niederhein - Dusseldorf, budget flights such as Ryan Air, might be handy for anyone flying over for the Corp Dinner in Oct
Hey don't forget J Tp 21 Sig Regt, was based at Gutersloh and then Scarborough Bks in Osnabruck. J and I Tp were support helicopter troops for both 230 Sqn (Puma) and 19 Sqn (Chinook). We moved to Wildenrath to the RHQ in 1987 and formed 4 Sqn (I think). What happend after that is a mystery to me - but J Tp were 21 Sig Regt !
depends how far back you want to go?
2 sqn were all based at Wildenrath as stated. harrier support in mid70's -mid 80's anyway we shared hanger 7 with 1 sqn as a nice enclosed carpark for a few years. away from everything..highlight of the day was waiting for the "mally"wagon
Good ol Wilders Nov 85-Sept 88. What a place for my first post. Nice little girls in crappy blue uniforms, but by hack they wanted it. The Mallie, Eng Inn, Train Bar (21 Sigs), Police Bar (Scum). Loads of fights with Pea Brained Rock Apes. Even one of our Guys petrol bombed the Snow Drop accn, he got caught and went down like a lead balloon. Best posting ever.
Left in 87 just before I troop went to Wilders.Best unit I ever served with.Staffie was Billy H,friendliest bunch of blokes to spend time with.Went past Scarborough Bks,Oznatraz years ago,guard Room still there but I think its a college now.Did not go in,too many memories to cope with.
I was L Troop, 3 Sqn. In 1991 after moving up to Laarbruch from Wilders on the back of Gulf 1. 21 went back UK side, and L Troop became, 220 Sig Sgn some time in early '92. Downhill from there for most of us I'm sad to say, as there were too many 'serious' grown ups who were out to stamp on our old L,O and N troop japes and were mood hoovers. I'm not a Mech by the way but at was just as good looking. Best posting as a junior rank by far; Mick K was out Troop Staffie, Dave W, was OC Tp at L Troop.
