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.
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?
