BAOR Pics

Discussion in 'Old & Bold' started by Arte_et_Marte, Feb 17, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After weeping at the Herforder Pils thread, and not wanting to wreck that one, how about some pics of the glory days in BAOR.

    We ain't getting any medals, but we must have some memories on film, if not in our Asbach riddled heads.

    The 3rd Shock Army Reconnaissance planes would never spot this. 4 ADSR LAD. circa 1984.

  6. Soltau...was this near Bergan-Hohne area?...and did they build a theme park on the training are?...Heidi Park or something like that.
     
  7. They did the Heide park, full of fercking mad baboons that ripped the shit out of cars, so they introduced a bus with mesh all around
    including the roof, so you got baboon shit upon.

    Mind you i do not remember very much about BAOR.

  9. Here are a couple from 1ADSR around 1986

    One from doing my track licence ( before I could even drive a car) the other at Div HQ, about to go out on a Flying Falcon iirc.
