  1. Hi....I've been lurking on the site for about four weeks now and find it great,
    I've decided to join as I'm quite an opiniated B'stard but feel a little 'shy' 'bout my credentials, hence my user/nickname(My grandad was hungarian, served in Kaiser Bill's army in the first big one on the somme)...I'm ex TA, RCT(562 Para. Sq.) at high wood barracks ,forest hill, london, cherry berries in 1975, I've done PCoy....got me wings up at abingdon, did a couple of summer camps, did selection for 'them'(21) at the time they were at high wood also....did alright at first, think I got through five weekends, I'm proud of that....but my mapreading was not really up to it so they obviously f***ked me off, I then threw my toys out my pram and packed it in.....much regretted now, hindsight is a wonderfull thing, If I now offer my opinions on a variety of subjects will i get absoloutly beasted

    I knew some in another 562 location and they did use cherry beret in the 1970s
