    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
  2. Do you know Bill Mika? he left 31 early 80's.

    nah sorry mate, i left in 75 and have only just recovered . :lol:
  5. 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
