Mad Padres

#1
Are there many of these still about? The one we had in Macedonia disturbed us whilst we were watching porn and thought it was hilarious, later saw him on a CFT with another unit laughing his head off carrying a spade instead of a weapon, sure some people on here will know who I am talking about but what other funny experiences have people got of barking mad Padres?

Was the chap youre on about rather tall?

The one I'm thinking of had a 'unique' laugh. He'd laugh at anything and everything. I met him in Bos in the mid 90's and later on in NI. Those of us who knew of him would tend to give him a wide berth due to him being odder than the number seven.

Mad as a box of wasps he was.

I think I know the one you mean, He walked into our farp in Sanski, saw the pictures a nice lady sent us with her placing various objects up her orifaces, and exclaimed "Who is that dirty slag?" told us a joke about a fanny licking frog, had a cuppa and the last of our oatmeal blocks and fcuked off!

I think he was a Roman Catholic Padre

Used to know an ex-SAS one. Did the Embassy seige and everything, then converted to God.

He must have been madder than most, because he topped himself a few years ago. Very sad.

And yes he was as mad as a box of frogs !

I remember big Dave - huge ears, I used to fall asleep in his lectures safe in the knowledge he wouldn't beast me to lone tree and back.

Great days..... or maybe not actually.

We had one with us on Granby Fr J** D***y. The CO tried to get him to remove his collar dogs with the crosses on them and he refused, saying that he was wearing them on higher authority than HQ BFME!

I once served with a padre who performed an exorcism on a BATUS OPFOR Salamander because it broke down once too often for his taste......

I know you won't belive it - but it worked because it didn't conk out again for the rest of the season (6 weeks!!!!!). He also roused out the communion wine when we ran out of beer one night - great bloke. :)

Frank Collins. Took his own life following a long battle against a depressive illness. A great tragedy.

I knew one, who was a proper Scouser who wore dark glasses all the time and had a dog called Satan. lol

The HAC Padre. Top bloke.

Sermon= he puts his ears inside out, tucking the wings into the earhole, and with a deft flick of finely developed head muscles, the ears pop out again.

Quick hymn, and off to the bar.

Our padre isnt quite that mad but I did manage to "bleed" all over his uniform when I was a crow playing a casualty on a ITD weekend. He wasn't impressed but at least he didnt beast me for it.

Ah. Frank. What a man, bloody shame he topped himself. would recommend his book to anyone.
Agreed.

Spent a fair bit of time with him when he was in the Larkhill/Bulford area.

Very sad when a friend of mine from Hereford told me the news.
