IJLB Shornecliffe

Oh my giddy ant, found this site after clearing a box I bought from my old house to a new one. Inside was pictures of my year of hell at Shorncliffe Junior Leaders camp. 16plt P Coy, Sept 75 - Sept 76, what a ball breaker, doubling everywhere, but the leave, all that money, felt like a millionaire. Went on to spend four great years in the Glosters, met some great mate's a long the way, can remember my officer Capt E-----ds fromt he Hampshire regiment, and a Kings Regiment sgt called R------n but the DERR sgts name escapes me, great blokes, first good piss up on a welsh coast have the pictures of the keg of booze they purchased. Tough time's but boy did it change this boy. Love to hear from anyone who served with Roger ( always threatening to join the camel corp at the time. I remember a great scouse guy from Speake and a good friend at the time Steve from Sandbach, went to his home on a half term, top man.

Good times but tough and hard and the hot 76 summer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
