Yes, the A69 wasn't a kind road on a dark, wet Friday evening, with some nasty bends over steep gullies, coupled with inexperienced and tired drivers hurrying towards a couple of beers and bed. Interesting that other, more experienced, units had similar experiences.That's the one I was thinking of mate. I'd only been in the TA for about 5 months when it happened. We had a 4 tonne TCV roll on the road to Otterburn not long after, no fatalities but a few injuries. My Section commander was out of action for a fair few months and a nice scar across his forehead as a souvenir.
Edit. I could be wrong but I'm sure we were opfor for the OTC that time
The annual NUOTC locking of horns with 5RRF was the January IS exercise around Carshope House...is that the one you recall? We managed to roll 4 tonnes too...
The incident in question happened on the November live firing weekend (Fox, the solitary Saladin's last outing and our pack howitzers' first range day, which is probably why the CO didn't endex on the spot). Bluntly it was a lesson in the danger of giving students access to a highly-bred 4.2 litres a couple of months after getting their licence; one mechanically-inclined crew did manage to tune their vehicle to, literally, speed limit breaking levels.
Years later I visited an RY drill hall which had several brass in memorium plaques, also thanks to CVR(W).
