  7. hi, was your ta centre at gloucester,that seems to ring a bell.. :D i know a few guys from there..cheers
  8. No the Mortar Pl was in Andover, it was the Milan Pl in Gloucester / Stroud
  9. 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.
  10. 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... :) )
  11. I was at Swindon in 86 onwards.

    I still have my very smart blue stablebelt and Wessex Wyvern Cap Badge.
  12. Were you in the mortar paltoon at Andover - I was platoon commander back in the 80's - took over from Cundy.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
