Doesn't it make you feel old that half the people on Arrse won't have the slightest idea where Gornji Vakuf is? Where does the time go... :p

Brings back memories of 92, building the Sqn bar in Split before we moved up country. We had the Booties from downstairs come up and use our bar as the R Sigs wouldn't let them drink and play their games in the Sigs bar.
A few good nights to be remembered or forgotten.

Spare a thought then for us who served in the early 70's then. :D

No, but I think I remember visiting the Sappers bar a couple of times when the JHC bar got a little too "grown up".

Was yours the one right down by the waterfront?

I also thought this was a Gornji Vakuf thread, who recalls the pivo with the Croation chequerboard on the label that was so volatile it could have been used for clearing minefields? (I knew I could get the thread back on topic if I tried hard enough!)
Ožujsko pivo! For your edification http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ožujsko_beer

There was one down there (near the transit accommodation) and one in another part of DJ Barracks. As I only ever visited the latter pished out of my skull, I can't be any more specific than that unfortunately. There was nothing better than getting on a jolly to Split, knowing that you'd be soaking up the excess beer with a huge Echos breakfast the next morning. :D

Bosnia in the immediate few years after the war was a top place to be - plenty of work to be done, loads of different camps to travel between, enough of a threat to make things interesting without being particularly dangerous. I don't suppose we knew how lucky we were, considering what came along a few years later...

aaaah good old GV... with the Air Corps bar complete with swimming pool (albeit frozen solid when i was there!) and the inf bar. We chose to drink our selves to oblivion in the AAC bar as they got us out of there come tour end. Then down to the RE(?) bar on the shoreline in DJ barracks to watch the sun go down, and rise again with an ice cold beer in hand.........happy days :relax:
