Greenfly Pictures

#1
A request for assistance.

As part of the Corps Day stuff this year we are looking for pictures of Corps life in Northern Ireland on and off duty. In particular pictures of the interior the various Greenflys through the years - Portakabin, Sandhurst block, Plastic Pub and the current bit. Pictures from the various functions (decent please) with people socialising; pictures in offices in uniform - there must stuff from training at Ballykinler on the ranges in civvies and uniforms; old Corps Days, families stuff etc.

We particularly need good pictures from the 1970s and 1980s as the material in the Rose and Laurel is not of particularly good quality.

If you are able to e-mail pictures, or send in the originals for return it would be very much appreciated.

Cheers :)

There is also the video of two Corps members "socialising" on Knox Rd Car Park. Taken by the Guard force monitoring the CCTV :D

An additional request. Does anyone have the phots from the dinning out of the very popular RSM FIU(NI) in about May 1997 (I think I was there but cannot remember!!!)? I have a request from one who was there and hasn't any photographic record. They remember an official phot recording the gathered crowd but the photographs never seem to have been offered up to the attendees.

Cheers.

There was a big display of photos at the recent Unit disbandment function in NI. Most of these were on noticeboards in the Greenfly. Many had been taken there over the years at presentations and featured a variety of people. The SSgt at 121 Int Sect is the man to talk too regarding these.

Cheers - we are already on to that one. We are also after anything hidden away in attics that might be interesting.

Oh yes, all those near-OAP types will be eager to drag out the black-and-white piccies of themselves in the 1970s... ?

Collar-length hair, flared cords, and zip-fronted cardigans with suede elbow patches.... (I'm thinking of Papa G's late-1970s fashion sense here; mine wasn't much better, but I've got the excuse of not even being a teenager at the time).

Still, armed women in the days of "the WRAC doesn't do guns" is always a topic for discussion :0

Ok, but you would not want to be around if one of their handbags or briefcases went off.

Talking of Greenfly related videos, apparently there may still be copies of a video featuring a duty NCO involved in some late night furniture restoration. Does this ring any bells?

Apparently this was quite a profitable hobby. I would quite like to be able to cash in on thos sort of hobby myself.

Does anyone know if this was ever published on DVD, a boxed set perhaps?

:heart:

I think there might still be some fairly low-quality VHS work, essentially amateur, covering two interesting hobbies:

a. Snooker table re-covering using improvised methods and materials (although, DIYers should note, the effort, while impressive, did little for the run of the balls, except in the short term).

b. Re-arrangement of financial resources by dint of informal budgetary adjustments (although, DIYers again to note, this has historically led to more difficulty than not starting the work in the first place).

interestingly i have now received two "confessions" from people claiming to be part of that little Knox Road nookie sesh.

perhaps there is an anthropological hypothesis we can test here:

are exhibitionists / slappers who do it on car bonnets more likely to join arrse than other people? :)
