Ex members of 76 Maudes Bty

#1
Dont suppose that any ex members of 76 Maudes Bty are out there anywhere are there. I was with them in paderborn 84 / 85, then Larkhill 85 / 87. Someone told me they were now a trg Unit, anyone know anything about it?

I ran Desbrisay's Tp at Pribright for one intake whilst holding for the APC. The accommodation was an absolute scandal and I was ashamed to have to defend it. I hope that Maude's has a better home now.

Ah, the fighting 34. It's a little known fact that the radar dish on the BC's roof is set up so that he can receive messages from his home planet.

Goodram, Nope it's not helping. I remember sos but the goodram I knew was a bespectacled CP wallah, (not Herr Flick).

Ok, in an outrageous bit of thread revival, I'll put my hand up!
I remember good-ram the CP wallah, SOS, track suit Bob and Herr Flick!
What about Plug, KFS, Budda and the other "characters" that made up the Bty?

@GNR40 if you're who I think you are, you're firing your mortars at your end, and they're landing here at our end!

This has been festering for a few years, I note but I joined Maudes in '59 and left in the Great Exodus of '64.

Are you still there ?
@fivemarkmonika

Sorry for the late reply. Joined Maudes June 1960 and left 1968. Had a variety of jobs ended up being a TARA with Fred Knowles and Willy Fitzsimmons. Went to 25 when I left as a TARA/Regt Surveyor Sgt. Retired in 1977. This is the only photo I have of me in 24. I am front rank 3rd from left. Taken in 1961.

Yes. I was in "B" Troop,76 Maudes Battery,30th HAA Regiment, BAOR 28. In the Town of Delmenhorst, Germany. From 1955 to 1957. I was informed by the Troop WO that the 5th Aggra we was in ,was to be disbanded. He was trying to get me to stay on and retrain on Missiles, IN WALES, I left. A little Army officer joke. The barracks was going to be Bombed with a Atomic Bomb, When the alarm sounded we had to be out of the barracks in TWO HOURS, this was in the middle of a German winter, the alarm sounded ,we all loaded up in the trucks BUT most of the trucks FUEL and Batteries FROZE UP so the trucks would not start, we sat in the freezing cold for two hours then a Officer came around and informed us we had been KILLED, how Droll and STUPID. It was known fact that happened to the trucks in the winter. The DUTY TRUCK use to sit there all night BUT WITH IT's ENGINE RUNNING because it might not start from cold. Still back with the VALIANT 600 with their standard of knowledge. I had that for Three years that is why I went
