Hi - I used to be platoon commander of 6pl before moving on to become 2ic of D Coy and then mortar platoon commander at Andover.
 
Served in both 1st and 2nd Bns. 17 Pln, E Coy in Plymouth with 1st Bn, B and C Coys of 2 Wessex.
( ..with an act like mine you gotta keep moving... :) )
 
Were you in the mortar paltoon at Andover - I was platoon commander back in the 80's - took over from Cundy.

There are still a few members of 17 Pl knocking about (believe it or not!), I'll PM you a few names to see if you recognise them. The bar in Millbay still has the roll of honour board with the members of 17 Pl that went on to be the founder members of A Coy 4D&D.

I was D Coy 1 Wessex, I think I might have been on the same recruits cadre in the summer of 83 (but it was at the small camp at the bottom of the hill) at Westdown.

Good God. I was in 2 Wessex 1975-77 before joining the Big Boys' Army. Fun times, even if we were jealous of all the Gucci kit the First Battalion gigolos got, as part of their role.
 
I've got to admit Wessex is a nice area, but I don't like going...

You're out on the town for a nice pint of beer, but you always have the nagging suspicion you're going to wake up in a wicker man.

Ex 17 Platoon, E Coy, 1 Wessex 84-85 before joining the Regs - transferred to the Oz Army after Colour Service ended last year and am now in Sydney - one of the blokes in my platoon is Ex 2 Wessex ... who'd have thought that eh?
