Hi mate, welcome to Arrse and indeed the Gunner forum, if you get no joy here, you may want to try:

Here as well

Good hunting fella.
Wont be many from them years still around. I remember Dave Howe i think, geordie bloke, liked diving (the water type) if its him, top man.

I was in 45 in 52 bty untill about 88 ish if its the same Howe he was our BQMS
yea, geordie Howe, i think he was our TSM, took some lads diving in Jordan.
didnt he have something to do with the special op Bty?


Hi, i was 45 Fd Regt from 1988 - dispandment. I was a gunner in 170 Bty and will shortly take over as a BSM in 5th Regt. There are not many still around although i have bumped into a couple over the last couple of years whilst i was serving as a SMIG in Larkhill. (Sean Haynes,chris young,) i dont want to compromise my username by giving you my real name but i was on the Tac Group along with Rushie,Jock Burse etc
REME Att to 170 bty 85-87. Top blokes.
Yes I am still serving and have to agree with MIDAS that there are not many of us left. Had a great ole' chin wag with 'Scouse' in L'hill last year; it was great to go down memory lane. I served in the Regt 1990-1993 and was part of the 170 'mighty 'Imjin' Bty. If I had enough time on my hands I would definitely organise a reunion. Now working in GLA. Hope you are all well.
Hi midas,

All the bast on Patrol on Civvy Street Mick. I served with ya with 25/170 in Colly in Mid 90's Scouse C was ya TSM. Give my best to Osc, Stan and all the other ex 45 lads and get back in touch.
Mickey T - good to hear from you. Didn't know you were in Larkhill. Say hi to the guys down there for me (ask Scouse who I am). Not sure if the reunion is happening this year.

jc170 - do you have any details of the reunion? Also i'm not sure what happened to Rushie - he's probably still driving that camper van of his around Bradford?!

Anyone with further details - they are welcome here. It would be great to get together again.
Hi there

I was Cav (4th/7th RDG) in Detmold and we had Kiwi Bty as our supporting Bty. They came to BATUS with us and all that. Great bunch of guys. I worked in Command Tp and so got to know the BC's Pty quite well and even got invited to their annual KIWI dinner.

I seem to recall that 45 were the West Yorkshire Gunners, we were the West Yorkshire Cavalry.

Hi all -
First post on this forum, recommended by JC.
Served with the Might Imjin (and Imjin mafia ha ha) from 83 - 91. Seem to remember some of you by what you're talking about. Was on the OP's until I left in 91. This is bringing back some good memories
