ASMT Leconfield

#1
All you people slagging off JST Leconfield should have been there when it was good old ASMT.

What a great place, pished every night, cheap bus to Beverley, laid every night by one of the many willing local girls down the Violent Squaddie then a good punch up with the civvies on the bus stop before the 10 min trip back to Normandy barracks

I was there in the mid 1990s matey, not sure when it changed over to being JST.

It was great when it was ASMT though. :lol:

Seconed no curfew lads sleeping pissed up in hedges/barns. Handing your ID card to the bouncers at LA's and a visit to Tower for an Hour (both now gone) Block NCO's who were as old as the Chelsea pensioners. and the happy bus to and from Buller memories indeed

I was there in 1995, had a great time pishing it up, shagging the local slags and getting into Hull for a night on the lash on the weekends.

The place was still pants though. The "WingWO" was a crusty old tosser with a dodgy handlebar moustache, and looked like he'd come straight out of Dads Army.

Fond memories of ASMT fresh out of Phase 1 Trg, being accomodated at Alamein Bks in Driff and getting away with murder. Going down to Driffield for a skin-full at weekends - The Ferret and Sprout pub and Odins (?) nightclub seem to stick in my mind for some reason.

The Block NCO's were okay (Mine was ancient), had many a pint with a few of them down in Driff. I had my 125 trail bike there, (Still only 17 :oops: ) so getting home was easier for me than most.

Bused to Normandy Bks and back each day and falling asleep in both directions.

My driving instructor was the dogs nads and lived in Bridlington, so back to his house for a break was a regular event. I still managed to get plenty of hours behind the wheel and pass my test (Dual car & HGV 3 back then.) first time.

The good old days of ASMT, when you were taught how to drive and not how to pass a test.

I've been back quite a few times since my initial encounter for various courses - there's been lots of changes over the years, other than the obvious name change. (96?) Some good, some not so good.

Did my HGV DI (Now LGV) couse at ASMT in 1978....how sad is that. Had to take the blades of the chariot wheels when instructing 8O

Summer of 88, Falaise Block.

Good times. We all behaved then too so no curfews.

Mad, mad weekends in Hull and Scarborough.

The Ferret and Sprout...what a great place!!!!

Almost as good as the 'Violent Squaddie' in beverley
Alas both have now suffered a name change, now The Original Keys & The Corner House.

Anyone remember Tracey the Trog (circa 88-89)? You know that any girl whose middle name is 'the' has to be one classy bird.

Winter of 78, 'Lights' on Escort Estates, HGV on TKs, thrashing around East Yorkshire between transport cafes. Managed to avoid the Violent Soldier by drinking in the Green Dragon, or the one over the road that was full of memorabilia from Leconfield's RAF days.

Went back for a class 1 driver course a couple of years later, commuting from Hull and wandering across the airfield from the railway halt in time to tag on to the muster parade in the hangar.

Blagged a freeby C+E just before leaving the Army, by which time the place had become home to mindless bullshit.

I was at Driffield in 1977 one of the first JL there.
Bus from Driffield to Leccy every morning and back at night. (30 minutes extra sleep each way).
All JL were encouraged to have thier own transport to get away at the weekends, motor bikes were parked in the old fire station/ambulance bay (I think at Driff).
Evening trips down to the Angel at Beverely.
Naafi break truck stops at the pub in Nafferton, TA Centre Hull/Hull tea rooms, and all along the East Yorkshire coast/seaside towns.
No unneccessary bulls**t, the odd parade, block inspection etc nothing to worry about when comphered with Norton Mannor Camp.
Most of the driving instructors were recently retired WO's and SNCO's, I was taught HGV 3 by an ex REME ASM who was also a keen biker and one weekend he fully serviced my 125 cc trails bike for me.
Going to Catterick and marshalling for the Army Trial Riders Competitons.
Once driver training was completed off to Combat Troop for a few weeks with the old and bold full screws, Bedford RL's and tales of Germany.
It was over 30 years ago.
