    Over a beer the other night.
    Out of the blue the question 'Do you remember the crowd who used to run about with black spiders painted on their landrovers'?
    'Maybe it was a scorpion'
    'A black scorpion'?
    'You remember them'?

    Anybody got any ideas
    I thank you
  2. Nope, but then I'm the first to admit I'm not the fountain of all knowledge by a very long shot.
  3. If my memory serves me right 8 Regt RCT's emblem was a black scorpion, but they where based in Germany (presumably now 8 Regt RLC).
  4. 8 Transport Regt RLC based in Munster Germany
  5. 58 Sqn RAF Regiment's badge was a black spider, and 3 Sqn's was a Scorpion. Probably be 3 as they were resident at Aldergrove for many years.
