Maj Dick Strawbridge was my Sqn OC (Penney) at AAC Harrogate in 1989-90ish. From what I remember he was a very fair bloke and certainly inspiring to the young lads under his command. I must add that his 'tache was mahoosive then as well, it was the talking point of the kids there due to most peoples' lack of ability to grow a top-lip-slug. Fondly remembered, especially since I saw him in his crazy alter-ego on Scrapheap Challenge.
Jimmys_Mate - I probably know you? Check PMs mate.
PS Happy New Year all, especially Dick if you read this!
I met him three-ish years ago when he was a contractor assisting with Bowmanisation of a CR2 Regt. Top bloke, very down to earth, and not afraid of getting his hands dirty. Not at all rank conscious either, which was nice.
Where did "It's not easy being green!" actually originate from? If they copied off WoW (Orc Joke - you have to be there) not that impressive but if WoW (9 million players) copied it from the good Colonel then the man is a LEGEND!!
