Looking for old friend - 7 Para RHA

#1
Hi There

Just wondering if anyone can help...................am looking for an old friend who was serving with 7 PARA RHA when they were still stationed at Aldershot. Don't think I am allowed to use full names on here so will just say that his surname is Ashmore and he would be in his early 30's now. Small scottish guy (from Coatbridge originally) who if you knew him I'm sure you would remember!

Just wondering what he was up to these days and how he was doing. If anyone has any info. or if they know him and could direct him to this post then great.

Thx :D

Very funny.......... :D :D

Nothing like that but knew him for a quite a few years when he was in Hampshire and was just wondering what he's up to now and how he's getting on generally. Last time I spoke to him was just after one of his brothers had got married and he was on his way back down to Aldershot, which was quite a while ago now!

But all joking aside my friend if he's in aldershot mate all you have to do is visit he old airborne haunts and ask the bar staff because they'll remember him because even tho we've all left the shot we're not forgotten and still hold the minor celebrity status from so long ago !!!!!!!

Thx (I think) but am not in the Army at all just happened upon this website when I was looking around to see if I could find anything about him, so am not a 'Hat' sorry!

Don't think he would be in Aldershot still as didn't 7 RHA move to Colchester or somewhere a few years back?

That is if he's even still in the army, I just don't know!!.....but never mind was just interested in seeing whether I could find out what he's up to now.

Thx anyway
