I have started this thread purely as a place where ex-JLRRA members (serving or otherwise) can try to find out what happened to their old troop members. Â and also to relive any funny memorys you might have about Bramcote.

 However,  i also ask this of ARRSE members, should we bring it back?  I believe so, although i a biased having done it myself.  what do you think??

40 (Wardrop) Battery, Mansergh Troop.


GQ Sorry to butt in on you JLRRA thread -  just had to let you know that your favourite Corps now occupies Bramcote.


No probs about butting in.   We know that we handed it over your corps you poor devils.  Ahh the memories.
