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 Mighty Maudes...what a TOP Battery. Many Happy days with Tracksuit Bob at the helm...LOL! Great bunch of blokes and FUN as well. Many a character in it's ranks. Goodram...if you're who I think you are...how's it going?
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!
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.
