'86 with the CanDet, although things were probably more "primitive" then, than they are now.

Things were pretty good when I was there. I had some good friends in CANCON, and I was there when they stood down, that was some party! Coincidently, a friend of mine in BRITCON, now lives in Canada, he was living out at Lake Huron, but has now moved closer into Toronto.

Old thread but well worth resurrection. I had my fun in the Sinai in the early 90’s - a great distraction from aimless post-cold war soldiering in BAOR. Did anyone ever succeed in getting the medal legitimised? I tried once but get the impression that it fell on stony ground.

I was there Nov 86 to May 87 with the USBatt, South Camp of course and the attendant OP (SCC6 at Nuweiba al Terrabin). If I recall correctly our Force Sergeant Major was from the Royal Tank Regiment. I met him once. He was a very nice guy.

Shakey1 - Were you the RE Posty there? I was in Staff Sec (RE LCpl, shared a hooch with a Gloucesters LCpl who thought it a great idea to try and drive the section's 4x4 at the yanks doing PT early one morning! I must say for all the time I was there I can't remember much, but I can remember going to the Patio (NZ Bar for more than a few beers). :D

PS is the video of the Last parade etc?

Hi there,
I remember that video as i made it as i was working for press and visits and was a diplomat driver there.
What great days.
TB - I was there in the last BRITCON (my last post is above yours I used to be ROBRE - but changed my name). Do you have a copy of the video? I will try and dig out my copies of the photos of us and NZCON etc and post them when i get them from my house at the weekend.

Hi mate I do remember you! I was an RE LCpl that worked in Staff Sec. I would be grateful if you could sort out a DVD copy of that parade. I will try and dig out my photo's tonight and post them on here.

I was there in 91/92 in the Central Engineering Facilities - the NZ bar was right outside my office which made getting back to the hooch difficult - especially when the barman had moved the bin. Of course then there was the night that big Sonja refused to let me close the Crown & Kiwi because the FMPU were drinking after hours
