Fan Dance

#1
Does anybody have the GR's for the fan dance. had a look over the net and there seems to be conflicting results. I always thought i was over the fan and back, but some places say otherwise.

Just looking at doing it for abit of training, maybe even doing it as a charity event, poss H4H in the future.

Cheers

Enough of your drivel.

The wiki page provided by brecon is spot on, unless they have changed it in the many years since I dragged my arrse round it before failing dramatically later on!

Your 098196 grid is around 4 kms east of the finish/turn around point, and spot height 762 is nowhere near the route. If your memory is that bad, perhaps you should avoid posting.

Tell you what, why don't you just post a shite picture of a tank - you seem to find an excuse to do so on every other thread you blunder into.

Yes it is still the same Duke. Cheers mate. Peter: check out Google search, ''FAN DANCE ALE from Breconshire Brecon Wales''. More info on the route there (I believe the PARA Regt do the same route, which is slightly different than the SAS one)...........

I believe he was taking part in one of the selection routes (possibly long drag), not Fan Dance which is conducted as a squad (at least to start with).

Tropper 66......you are spot on with the grid for the monument but Maj Mike was taking part in the final Endurance march of test week. He went down with hypothermia. He was already badged.......unfortunately he was just out for a walk that day tagging along behind the selection course (great Officer).
