No. But name is familiar.
Theres only one ex Air Corps person up north where I am and he was out the mob before I joined up. A former Pilot, ex Buffs, who worked for years in civvy street. He's now 70 ish.
Younger guys tend to settle down south for the beach seance.
Bas B the Chief Clerk is/was down in Songkala working for the offshore oil/gas company, but apart from that I know nothing.

Only heard it secondhand but I thought 664's favourite greenie (Ah So Tojo) was the best, picking up a loaded weapon at a security briefing and letting off a round which went upstairs, through a desk and a splinter went up somebody's nose. The loaded weapon belonged to the secret squirrel that was giving the briefing so Tojo got away with it.

I'm sure somebody who was there could tell the full story but oh how we laughed back at Minden.

Urban myth? AAC duty driver picking up at either Aldergrove or Belfast City airport, spots a fight break out between two civvies and pulls his personal protection weapon to break it up. Is promptly arrested by the RUC, along with the two civvies. True or false? Story did the rounds mid 80's.

Funnily enough I was talking about this with the wounded soldiers mate over on the Channel 4 news forum.


Trev had arranged to have the Int guys at the castle give us a talk on IRA weapons. The guy in the funny coloured beret had brought a collection of ex ira stuff for us to play with but rather stupidly had placed his personal weapon on the bar at the same time (the lecture was held in the rest room thingy). Some greeny picked it up (was Tojo IC REME, in which case it wasn't him) waved it in the air a couple of times, racked the slide, sighted carefully at the wooden top of the bar and squeezed an imaginary one off - except it wasn't imaginary and the round kicked into the bartop and a splinter went into the Int guys nose.

I was in Bessbrook or St Angelo at the time doing loadmaster duties but got a blow by blow account when I got back mid afternoon
