I passed off Dec 74 to 3RTR with B*b C*ates, J*hn 'Sn*tty' R*ch*rds*n all originally A Sqn, then into C Sqn with the B Sqn lads for pass off term. Then straight to Hohne Gunnery School - which was, as I recall, accomodated with 13/18th.

What was the name of the big disco in Bergen with all the bars?

My march on parade was December 74 as a snotty and watched fire-lighter and his mates march off.

Bob Coates and Snotty Richards spent many a weekend falling through the front door and raiding the fridge for a big fry up.

Only for Fire-Lighters mum to go crazy as his father had no bacon, mushrooms and eggs left for his fathers sunday breakfast on the sunday morning!

Leaving me and my mates to carry on the tradition of getting plastered and raiding the fridge for the next 18 months of trainingg until pass out parade.

George Toomer and I went to 3RTR Fallingbostal while the others went to the horse muck spreaders, Blues & Royals, 17/21, Scots Greys and the Hussars.

Reading these threads brought a lot of good memories back but I can't honestly say I'd given the place much thought till now.
Remember 'Top of the Pops' on Thurs and the jnco's bar - the executive suite!
