It was still in the Shot but they'd moved it to Depot Para as where it was originally behind the officers club was getting a bit of a hazard as local kids were climbing on it and falling off it! Bless em!
Thanks for the info.The last time I was in the 'Shot,some years ago,the Officers Club seemed to have been turned into some kind of hotel.I remember,when doing P Coy,that one of the instructors shook the bottom of one of the poles on the trainasium,to show us how flexible it was! On the shuffle bars we were required to remove some item of kit,from our backpacks,before shuffling off the end.It looks now as if candidates do not wear any kit,on the trainasium?I guess there are probably some safety nets etc,now that the HSE nazis have arrived?
Until a few years ago, the remains of the old tranasium were still there behind the officers club, its featured in the series the paras,.Was used until late 80s, before a new one was built in browning barracks. Dont know if any of the old original tranasium is still there, I doubt it.
The doco from cutting edge brings back a few memories, as my dad knew most of the DS.
A few years ago, I bumped into a royal engineer who took part in the show...he failed aswell..2 times.
