Norrie, mercenary, Mostar

#1
I bumped into this guy in '92 on my way to Mostar, and he said he was a SSM in 22. Later, I saw a pic of him on the front-line in the thick of it (Mostar), so fair play to him. Later still, in Hereford, on seeing the picture a guy told me he'd seen him in the supermarket there, so it looks legit. Can anyone confirm, as I' m writing my memoirs, and I don't want to have to write him up as a Walt.

Not sure there were any Sapper Regts there at that time - 22 in particular.....

Which front line ? - there were at least 3.......

Doubtful there were any supermarkets in Mostar at the time you stated........

I know this guy personally. His life, history and actions are very famous indeed and have made him not only very rich, but these days have even put him in the corridors of power.

If I'm not mistaken, he's Austrian, or was before he changed his nationality.

In his time he was incredibly fit, but like us all, time has somewhat diminished his stature.

I believe he's actually the governor of Texas or something.

His name, for those that haven't yet seen him, is Arnie. Arnie Swarzkopfenegger.

You are very correct. He is often abroad and in supermarkets, possibly as a purchaser for Lidl.... :D

I don't think he works in a supermarket as he seems to have a rather nasty skin complaint, I'm sure he's a Roma Pikey, now living on a roundabout near Dublin.
