3 Armd Fd Amb- a higher class of Fd Amb

After 9 months in the FI dodging Gulf War 1, the lager was a great place to land. Must admit at first i thought the Bennys had followed me, but there were some real stars. Senneck what a bar.
Oh yeah just what you wanted pissed medics waving an ice axe about, trying to hit a 6 inch nail. Had some real bad hangovers out of there. What was the name of the bird who owned it? A rough sort but heart of gold, alway let you run a tab.
3AFA, definately the best of the AFAs...spent 3 glorious years there 83-86, some great characters. Who remembers any of them?

Legendary Nails!! How many fingers?
Great game!! After far too many asbach and cokes!! The seen-eck, what a dive but we all went there!! I remember Elaine, she used to fill us in on how she cut bits off her fanny when she shaved herself!! Lovely lass! :headbang:

I also rember a mad CO (opposite of South) who insisted on PT when it had been recomended by the Garrison MO that PT should be stopped because it was so cold. Minus 20 or something. But oh no, not the good old Medics!!! We were out there running through 3 tanks side gate, slippin on ice and breaking the ice on the rivers so we could do our river runs!!! Who said Doctors make good leaders of men??? They need shooting! :headbang:
Yes he was as mad as a sack of frogs. Used to make all the sick, lame, and lazy do PT even if they had a biff chit. Im a doctor and i no whats good for you lads???? Tosser.


Mmmmm Sennelager Trg Area at -10! You couldnt fault it!

Great PT sessions watching the lame and lazy and those with the fabloned biff chit frogmarched down the cellars and beasted on the multi-gym! Strange how they soon recovered.
Oh it worked all right, got a nice compensation payout on leaving the service. So get beasted when on the sick. Take the pain for lots of gain.
I remember that mad scotsman who got bust from full screw down to Pte for beating up a tom, he was a PTI and ended up in the QM's where Dave Knight took him under his wing :thumright: . There was also a dodgey Sgt who used to work in the Trg Wing, he did alot of D+D and battlefield tours. :headbang:
There were also the 3 toms who refused to leave their rooms for 4 days when Freddie Mecury died. They were in mourning and lived on Vodka!! Mad as hatters!!! :spiderman:
Must be a career soldier Keo you remember to much????
Does anyone remember the slightly deranged Sgt who tied his girlfriend to the bed, then released his tarantula and python into the room before pissing of down the strip?
Think it must be the same chap who was a Cpl, and just got promoted as i left. As he had spiders and all that creepy stuff when he was in the block. Definatley something he would have done.

Don't forget the snake he had, and the massive insect called 'Ugly' looked like a preying mantis on steroids.


On GW1, we had the weird and wonderful RADC section which had a managery of insects that would put London Zoo to shame. Although they werent chuffed when I spent the afternoon feeding the lizards jaffa cakes.

One Cpl even put some lizards in nets and attempted to smuggle them back to Sennelager in a 5 hr flight to Hannover!

Plus they had a superb Merc truck VRN Raghead 1, which they cut about in until it blew up! I am suer they found the one tracked T55 which they nearly got going. I have the 12.5 MG sight just to my right- now a paperweight!
If i'm not much mistaken he was the same guy who did his Top rope and Abseil course, then decided to jump out of his top floor room complete with rope and harness. But forgot to tie on to something!

Good job he was pissed as it eased the pain!
