432 Bordon crash. 1983

Ah, Robin Wifrid Painter of 11th Hussars fame. After his various escapades he finished up doing quite well. Made SSgt I believe.

One of the aspects of that story that I find amusing was that when Trooper Painter was up before the CO he was told that if he had got all the way across the desertion and theft of transport/fuel would have been put down to a publicity stunt.
