Does anyone have any good or bad memories of the Commanders Cup that each Company in Intelligence and Security Group Germany used to host ? I'll start off with a couple. In 1976, 7 Intelligence Company used to host the Commanders Cup Rally, using standard Land Rovers. I was in 72 Intelligence Section at the time, based in Lubbecke and our Warrant Officer just happened to be one of the so called "star rally drivers". The rally used to start from Bielefeld and go on through the night with Marshals provided by 7 Int Coy JNCOs, positioned in woods and junctions in the freezing cold. At the end of the rally, normally around 0600 hrs in the morning, whilst everyone went off to get their heads down, including our own WOIC, he ordered the rest of the Section, who had also been up all night to return to Lubbecke for a normal working day. Small wonder that he was later commissioned, decided that his wife and kids weren't suitable enough to be seen around him, divorced them and later married a WRAC Lieutenant to enhance his status - but that didn't last too long either. The second occasion was the by now famous Silberhutte deployment to the Harz mountains. 7 Int Coy was returning in a convoy of Land Rovers, all towing trailers, when to our amusement, one impatient young Corporal, who I believe later made it as far as Lieutenant Colonel, decided to overtake a few of us in front of him. Unfortunately, not being known for his attention to detail, he forgot to put the split pin into the towing hook and didn't realise his trailer had come loose and was freewheeling along thhe road towards oncoming traffic. He got away with that one as well !
