The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Any ex 24 Fld Sqn 1979 at Kitchener Bks up to when they first moved from Chatham to Chattenden?
If anyone was. What I am after is a picture (or to buy if they have a spare) the old Flash we used to wear the Flying Donkey = Pegasus.
you clutching at straws there "diverre" ????
good luck, bit before my time (86 onwards).
Spent a year there, 93-94 MMMmmm
I know 2 people who were posted there. Both signed off within a couple of months......
When you say a 'picture' of said flying donkey,I have a small straw you can clutch at. I take it you mean of the badge only or will a complete stranger wearing one do?!!! Not me by the way.. even though we in 20 Sqn down the road wore it too. Didn't half upset the airborne elements if I remember. I've just been looking through some old photos and if I remember, they didn't last long cos it was connected with 6 Air Mobile brigade and I dont see anyone wearing it from 1980 onwards.. might be wrong. Let me know if it's of any help.. Cheers
That sounds about right. If I remember they were Blue with a yellow Flying Donkey.
I will PM you my email addy if you would be so kind as to email me a few pictures.
Also if you have one used or new I would like to buy it for my collection of badges I used to wear. Or if you know where or from whom I might be able to obtain one would be great also.
Babies Heads was one of my favourite Compo scrans too Mmmmm
Look forward to your PM with E-mail addy and as I said, it's only a pic of someone wearing it!!
Here guys. heres a picture of my collection of badges I wore when serving. All that I am missing is this Blue and Yellow Pegasus so if anybody knows whom or where I can buy one (Condition irrelevant) I would really appreciate it.
Was MT Corporal at Kitchener and Malta Lines about that time 79/82
was a sapper in 3 troop '78 '80
The formation was 6 Field Force. This bloke is selling them (scroll down to the list of brigades)

Got a spare 24 Fld Sqn Tie if anyone wants it.
