I was with Shiney 9 at Detmold in the late 70's when Ross Mallock was CO, we had Scouts then and had a ball deploying on exercise as a flight with back of cabs filled with orange handbags, after flying ended for the day, building a big bonfire and sitting around on crates getting pissed. One of the guys, used to wear his slippers in the location after flying and one night someone took a dump in them, rather than mag to grid, he took them home to wash them for next ex! I think he ended up as a gazelle driver, poor sod. I remember as a crewy he barfed into a barf bag every time he flew, but because he could still do the job never got chopped, ex Queers on Horseback as I recall. We had an ex barman from Belfast on the flight who used specialise in a cocktail for each new exercise, I vaguely remember drinking Tequila sunrise out of big black plastic mugs, One of our young lewtenants, ended up puking so hard he shat his kecks and slept in them only realsising next morning that the shit stink was from him and he proceded to rake the cack out of his trolleys! Then they spoilt it all and gave us Lynx, biggest fuckin vibrator in the world with shit availability, oh and this was the AH1, none of the fagotty things with wheels and tops hats on the rotor head. Any body else there in those days with an anecdote or two? I heard a fat wobbly, can't pass BFT while he has a whole in arse, sergeant pilot, ended up as training major at wallop, who ever heard such a thing? another weasely guy with a rubbish tache was I/C sims at wallop?? Ross Mallock produced a record or Army Air Corps type flying songs with some other guys from the Regiment, playing instruments various, (one of whom was a lance jack crewy who took a commisiion in the RAOC) it was excellent, called Army Airs IIRC, would love a copy if someone still has one??
