54 Sy Sect

Does it still exist? It was there in the 80's and was based in a gatehouse and right next to a bakery where, every morning, the smell would waft over and we had no option but to go and partake of the bacon butties. :drool:

The answer is no.

I closed it down in 93 (being the last person left in Bielefeld) whilst the rest of the Section dispersed to the old 51 at Celle and the old 55 at Osnabruck. 5 Sy Coy was absorbed into the new 3 Sy Coy which was an amalgamation of 4 & 5 Sy Coys commanded by the man who is now the Recruiting Chief across the water.

I was also there in the 80s in the Corps Sy Det from 84-86 and returned to the Section between 88-93.

Incidentally, you didn't have a cake made for you by a smitten Sgt fro 64 Ord Coy did you ?

If you know me, pm me to confirm.

God no - I hadnt even joined up at that point.

I do know a few on here that would have been there or there abouts and some that would have also been in the 1 Br Corps Int Sect (70 Int Sect)

Well the clue was in the Corps Sy Det - perhaps a certain fat, ugly and obnoxious (to some) Sergeant who made everyone in the Section jealous because I was getting POHR for a WO1 may ring a bell. I may not have had my Red Merc when you were there but I am positive you were not impressed by me. I was living in the 1 (BR) Corps Sergeants Mess and, if I am right, you were married to a JNCO in 7 Coy. The OC was an ex-RMP with a peculiar habit of not exactly looking at you when he talked. The WO2 in the Section had had a tatoo removed from his right forearm so that he would look right for his commissioning - which never came. The female Sergeant was married to a guy (sadly no longer with us) in 28. There was also a female upstairs, who was at that time married to a truckie from 10 Regt RCT, MJ. Does any of this ring a bell

Yes, yes and yes again. All those clues fit! Do you remember the WO with the removed tattoo had the nickname FISH?

I need to pm you now for full revelations!!!!!

From what I recall from the depths of my memory, the Sy Sect closed down in early/mid 93. The Sect that was upsatirs took over the remainder of the building and handed that over in late 93. I only know that because I worked upstairs and handed the building over before moving to Dusseldorf.

As an aside, the buildings are still there, or they were 18 months ago when I was last in the country.

I remember when the Sy Sect were on AT we took the Sgt Majs (B De L) desk apart and hid it round the building and posted a 'Desk Wanted' notice in the Sixth Sense with his phone number. Cue him back from AT with no desk, getting calls saying 'I understand you're looking for a desk?' How we laughed!

If this site was soundtracked that last post would have sounded almost like cheap German porn! Which fits rather nicely with the "what were you doing in Germany in the 80s" theme! :D

Dubb - me and the female Sgt ended up living in the same town and bumped into each other about 6 years ago for the first time since the 80's. Does that mean you live in our town too??!?!?!?!

I've pm'd you to see if we know each other.

I remember the incident of the desk very wellbecause the Loser blamed me for being behind the kidnapping. If only he had thought to have looked in the cellar store behind the bar where you Barstewards had left it. I wouldn't have had to undergone the interrogation by him (The Jap Lover) and the other jumped up nutter S***all. They even threatened to put me up in front of the OC 5

Why not just rent B***k J***'s caravan.
Ah !!! memories of when his German girlfriend would moan at him all the time and complain that he never took her out for a meal but just wanted to shag her all the time - so he locked her in the caravan, went to the nearest backerei, bought a stick of french bread, returned to the caravan, threw the bread at her and said "There's your f**king meal now get your legs open and shut up !"

You could open a whole new thread on "B J A" but nobody would believe half the stories (and the Kriminalamt are probably still interested in the other half!)

Like the time on Exercise Crusader or Lionheart, I forget which one, but we were based at Tofrek Barracks in Hildesheim and lo and behold, two young whipper snappers from 21 SAS (V) thought it would be funny to leave a dummy PE charge in the 9 x 9 that B***k J**e was working in, only to find him waiting in their billet for them to return. Funny how such a small muscular man could do so much damage without breaking into a sweat.

When they tried to complain to their PSI they were told to go forth and multiply and not to interfere with a legend again. They hadn't realised how much time he had spent with 22.

Or during his short lived adventure in one of 7 Int Coy's Sections when he told the Chief of Staff where to park his bike during an exercise.
