Hiya Busterdog !
Agree .......probably the best military website on the WWW
According to T. F. Mills, regiments.org will be resurrected in the near future.
He has had ISP and server volume problems.
Untill then, you can talk and discuss with him on his Google Forum on this linky :
http://groups.google.com/group/becforces?lnk=srg&hl=en
You can also download a copy of the website from this linky :
http://www.mediafire.com/cefsg
Put it on your desktop, and you have it forever.

Anything big planned for Quebec Day this year ?. It being the demiquincentennial & all that.

Yes, I did have to find the word on Wikipedia

Any of you Queensmen on here ever hear of Sgt Joe Gooden? he was an instructor at IJLB Oswestry in 1973.

I think he was 1st Bn Queens Regiment. Sgt Collins was also there.

I remember Joe Godden. He left the army as a C/Sgt in 77. Didn't know he was an IJLB instructor.

Thanks OPPO, he was in fact Sgt Joe Gooden. He was an well built EM chap about 5'9' tall.

A really professional guy. When teaching drill, if a member of the squad made a mistake he would say " You are as bad as these Bl*** C**** in London!" which coming from him in 1973 was hillarious.

Do you know what happened to him after he left the Army?

Yep, I joined 1 Queen's after leaving IJLB in early 76 and he was back there by then, promoted to C/Sgt, (which he always made a joke of). An excellent, extremely professional guy who had also served in Malaya during the 50's.

I have no idea what he did after leaving the army and haven't seen any sign of him in photos from reumions etc. Hopefully he's still alive and kicking, having a decent life somewhere. If I hear, I'll look this up and advise.
 
#19
Thanks for that info Oppo.

I can still hear Sgt Joe Gooden's voice today after all these years:

"SHUT YOUR C%&T!"

"CLEAR THE RIFLE OF GUNGE AND CORRUPTION"

"THESE BL*&£ C&*TS" - (him being EM)

All the best!
