220 Field Ambulance RAMC ( V ).

Hi guys just a quick post on behalf of my father. He served in this TA unit from the mid 70,s up till the early 90,s. Being a complete biff like me on anything to do with computers, he has asked me to post on here to see if he can catch up with any old mates. PM or post I,m sure your replies will be most apprechiated. He was a well known member & i,m sure anybody serving this unit at this time would remember him !!

Regards LT.
:D hi, I was the Chief Clerk of 220 Fd Amb from 1977 - 1980, bet I knew your Dad!
They were in West Malling, although the unit was (and probably still is) on the main Maidstone road, not far from the Royal British Legion Village.
sorry Wilki dont recall the name bet id recognise the face though also recall "sausage" Dave, Ian who was an arms dealer in civilian life (seriously) remember him being stopped by police while riding his pushbike carrying a bergan full of assorted hardware and Jim whos now working as a bodyguard so Im told remember Jim having a lovely ND at Thetford the look on his face was pure horror but extremly amusing to us, thats enough of me waffling on Ill **** off now.

Good advice from one in the know!
I remember running around Germany with MH in charge of the section. Great time - also remember him running into a "puddle" somewhere on Salisbury Plain, (we were all running around it) and it coming up to his neck! Happy days!
