http://www.arrse.co.uk/wiki/AMF(L) After browsing over this thread http://www.arrse.co.uk/naafi-bar/157054-whats-coldest-youve-ever-been.html its apparent that there are more than a few ex AMF (L) members on here. AMF (L) was undoubtedly some of the best years of my Army career. Winter in Norway, summer in Denmark, Turkey or Italy. It was always a good laugh and many of the war stories are still told to this day. Some of my memories good and bad; Having all the latest Gucci kit while the rest of the Regiment looked on enviously, smocks, Gore-Tex, windproof trousers, gaiters, SA80 etc........ Other arms asking what the badge was on your jumper. Loading ships in the middle of the night at Marchwood in-between Christmas and New Year. The cookhouses at South Cerney/Brize/Lyneham. Sailing to Norway on the RFA Sir Geraint, being booted out into the cold every morning for Captains rounds and it being -25C when we first arrived in Trondheim. Skiing on wooden NATO planks with leather bindings, thankfully they were soon replaced by the new plastic skis with wire bindings. Tennis racquet snow shoes. Norgy shirts and jumpers. Tent sheets, FFS whose idea were they? Being second man on the pulk, say no more. The astronomical price of beer down town, offset by the £8 a day LOA paid in cash on arrival. Painting vehicles 4 times a year, green and white, green and sand, green and black, black and white.... Hagglunds BV206, the best arctic vehicle ever. Studding tracks and tyres. Using the sports pitch as a giant skid pan and doing 7th gear reverse slides in CVR (T) Doing RAAT tasks on SPTA in black and white vehicles. Arriving at Incirlik and walking down the ramp off the Herc to go straight up the ramp of another one flying to Erzurum. Accidently crossing the border into Georgia and Armenia while on Ex in the Anatolian mountains. (The only unit to invade the USSR during the cold war.) Three days on the troop train travelling from Erzurum to Mersin, train toilets being a hole in the floor straight onto the tracks. Cooking on a hexi stove on the train flats while the train was moving. The DFDS ferry to Esbjerg and beer being rationed. Copenhagen, Danish beer and Danish women. The great EFI beer robbery at the Guard Hussars barracks. (Notice the theme here?) There are plenty more but I'll save them for another day. So, all of you ex AMF (L) cold war warriors. What memories do you have of AMF (L)?
