In Bhurtpore Barracks, Tidworth, with the finest tank regiment ever.. the 4th! At least, that is what the CO always told us!
With 50-odd Chieftain tanks rumbling around Salisbury Plain, it was quickly obvious that our services would not be required and we were told to stand down for the weekend, IIRC (and it was a very long time ago)!
I heard about the incursion into South Georgia from Newsround, the actual invasion I saw on a newspaper on my way home from school
The funniest thing I remember about the whole thing, apart from thinking like everyone else "why are the argies invading the Shetlands/Hebs/etc" was our ACF AI who packed his kit beliving he was going to "get the call" not he wasn't ex reg/TA
oh yeah and those bloody call up papers that are still doing the rounds
I should have added 'living the dream at Queen's School at Rhein-D' - underage boozing at the cloggie bar and the polish and shagging 19 yr old WRAFs because they were stupid and we could and they had less armpit hair than the local kraut tarts and being found d&d and getting a lift home by the RMP coz daddy was in the snr officers mess when your mates folks got a call to pick em up at the cop shop!
Living the dream indeed (I'm in need of a brattie fix from the wagon by the NAAFI !)
