diverre
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

Hi mmm-babies-heads

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

86 onwards that'll explain the cynical replies:0

Bllox to rent a troop, great Sqn just the rest of the Corps that was too jealous to realise.

Remember the World Record 5 Bay-start of the comps, it was between 69 and Sect Cmdrs Cse at Lodge Hill

3 tp went up to prove the eqpt and built the fecking thing over a minute quicker than the 'trained specialists' JPs face was picture, seem to recall he bought the beers on Fri in the bar, but then he was tighter that a ducks ass, sure he was from Yorks not Wigan (diamond geezer)

Can't have been that bad a place (at the time) of 3 Tp 85-88 there were over fifteen WOs last time I looked and then there were the wasters :) who couldn't even get a train warrant: ) OOps that might be me.
