calling old mates

#1
Hi there i have just left 22 sigs after nearly 11 years. I have lost touch with most of my old mates due to losing phones, having apsycho possesive girlfriend ha ha and being god dam lazy. I was looking for anyone who was posted at Germany, York, ATR Litchfield, Nuneaton or anyone who whent on adventure training last summer to cormwall. Played Rugby last summer in Wales or whent to new york at xmas time 2000 or any one who recongnises the name.

Hmmm....if you joined the Sigs 11 years ago then Basic Training should have been at ATR Bassingbourne. Although I know a small handfull of Sigs who did go through basic at Pirbright around that time...never heard of any from Lichfield though...

I could be wrong and will hold my hands up if anyone can show otherwise...?

What was your unit in Germany? Where was it based?

Edited because after reading his other posts he is clearly not a member of the Royal Pignals.

Jimmy - Bore off!

Apologies :D
But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt Jimbo - if you can clarify the following:


you said:
Yea 22 sigs moved to nuneaton. It was s*** there i hated it! It was better at York
http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/p=1251935.html#1251935

Hated it where? 22 Sigs in Stafford, 30 Sigs in Nuneaton or 2 Sigs in York? Any 11 year sweat would know which.


When discussing 30 Sigs LAD you said:
I hated it there mate! Good luck with that. Being posted there was the reason i left the army after nearly 11 years of service. It is so badly organised that you end up getting so stressed, It lacks communication big time and there is nothing to do on that camp. I hate it

So what's your story mate?

Legal-Eagle. Adult entry moved from Bassingbourn to Litchfield in the autumn of 02. So what you say is correct, unless of course, he/she was a diffent capbadge and then rebadged.

Hi everyone sorry for my lack of clarification in my last post. I never use the net, never put posts out and just sort of wrote without thinking, putting full stops in etc…I just assumed that people who I was looking 4 would recognise my name, which is why I didn’t bother putting too much info on.

I would love to know why the hell you people would think that I would want to lie>? what on earth would i gain out of that? I genuinly
only came on here to locate some old mates who like I said I had lost touch with and now i dont see or hear from any of my mates that i effectivelly grew up with!
If you would like my military, history here goes. I just think that this is so bloody funny.

In 1998 I went to 11th Signal regiment – the royal school of signals – Blanford Dorset
I then spent some time Rowcroft bks Arborfield in Reading. I did my first tour to Oman and then spent new year of 1999 in New York.
I then was posted to

2 sig regt imphal bks fulford rd York the length of this tour was about 36 months. Here I did my Arms pre parachute selection course and got recommended for services with airborne forces. Although I didn’t take up this opportunity as I got interested in becoming a PTI.

In Germany I was at 7 signal reg, A0306A Javelin Barracks Bruggen Germany. I was here till 2004. It was here that I did many PTI training qualifications etc…

I was then posted TO A2434H Recruit selection cen Litchfield (ATR LITCHFIELD) on the 8th of Sept 2004 to work as a PTI. This tour was for about 20 months but i managed to stay a bit longer as i loved it there!

After this I was posted to 30 signals reg gamecock barracks Nuneaton and this was where I decided to leave the army as they were calling people back in to there trade and seeing as though I had not done my trade for so long and enjoyed working as a PTI much more I decided to re think my army career. Firstly I tried to see if I could be put in the gym but they wouldn’t let me and I had to go back to my trade which was coms so I applied for early release and got it. I left Nuneaton begining of April this year.
I hope that this satisfies some of you out there and will stop you all assuming things!!!!

Oh yea to add a bit more info my army ID number 25080687.

Jimmy, no one on here assumes anything. Imagine being in a troop brew room, only the whole of the Corps are able to chip in with whatever conversation is going on at the time. Thats what you've just jumped into.

Firstly, i cant understand why you felt the need to include your unit UIN's with your explanation of service.

Secondly, remove your regie number from your post. Including it isnt wise.

Other than that, welcome to arrse.

So did you go to Harrogate or not?
What intake were you then?
In 1998 you were in Blandford - this was 9 years ago - but you say you were in nearly 11 years?
Did you got to New York in 1999 or 2000?

Thanks for clearing up where it is Jim. I doubt very much if anyone from the Signals, reading a Signals Forum would have known where the Royal School of Signals is mate.

Doing what? I only ask because you mention it and therefore I assume it's important? You wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise would you Jim?

Again, thanks for the (very detailed) location......hmmm....not wishing to doubt mate but it's almost as if you are reading off from something....an old posting order or red book or unicom printout you found? (are we getting warm?)

You managed to stay longer? let me guess.......another 16 months maybe taking you up to 36 months? If not then I'm impressed that the Corps wrote you a posting order for a random number of months (which must have been for a specific reason) but then altered this unusual deal because you loved it there......Good on you mate.

Your trade was comms?.......Get away....... :roll: Any specific trade or just "coms"?

Which means your banter and recollections of service/mates etc should not be half as pump as your thread clearly indicates.


Fibbing Jim said:

Again, glad you gave us this irrefutable proof of your service. Funny.....I always just called it a "number" as opposed to an ID number mate (but I could be wrong, being such a sprog and all.....). BTW, you'll probably find that about a hundred people will be checking your number tomorrow anyway - it may match the name and service record but I very much doubt that that record is yours.


I think meself you've nicked some fcuker's bag.

If not, good luck in your quest to find your mates :roll:

E-Layer..I was just about to pick him up on his regt number until I read your last...besides a few other points!

I joined in 95 and my number is 2505....

Jimmy...army numbers run in sequence (ie the later you joined the higher your number and I have NEVER heard anyone refer to their "Army ID number" nor would they be daft enough to post it in full on an insecure site (especially a member of the Royal Corps!) COMMSEC!!!

If that is really your reggie number then you have not served for 11 years
