Any of you lot remember when 31 aes was formed out of the best bits of 2, 26, and no one traing regt .?
I joined Xmass 1970 on a frozen evening to be met by a drunken tojo having a punch up with someone. Me and snorsey were straigt from training and by god were we new.
Happy daze, from Red Zing in the Naffi to a bottle of pernod a day in the crowbar. I remember beeb and Butlins discovering that i had real german cash on me in the new year and promptly took me out to the qualle to spend it on a good nite out , for them !! Mind you Butlins took the hump when he had to contribute to the cab fare home as they had skinted me . :)
anyone remember I ?
ps dont worry about my spelling .
A. I am dyslesic A. i am a crap typist. :p :p

I'd moved to Tidworth when this was going on, but I remember Tojo. When I got back I was at Monkeylager with 26 as orderly Cpl, then I was transfered to the re formed 31 sqn where I remained for 5 years before getting posted to Waterbeach in Cambridge.

I still miss the days in Armoured even 22 years later
