What a shame that the PC brigade killed off the characters! A couple I remember are Dave "Gopper" L*** and the mild mannered electrician who masquraded as Captain RE and Magic Wond.

All guys who could make me p++s myself laughing with a few "off the cuff comments".

Pete is a Character,,without a doubt and a good Sapper also!!! :D Its just a pity he could not stay off he drink.

After he got punted pete wa bored and sat at home, he decided o go on a Drinking Holiday in Hameln.

The next day (after the local fuzz dropped him off) he was found in 64 Sqns Recce Tp lines by the SSM :lol: :lol:

Needless to say he was escorted off the premisis! :) :)

I'd much rather have a troop of characters than a troop of admin cases any day. Bring back the likes of Andy J***** and Dave D****. Both were good old fashioned Engineers who liked a sniffter or two. Nothing wrong with that, if you can't remember it ... it never happened!!!

i had the pleasure of working and drinking with the mighty pigsy when at ripon. you was a legend and a gentleman, its a shame the so called grown-ups had to boot him out but his memory lives on

Pigsy was a legend, he was in our troop at Ripon i had the pleasure/misfortune of a couple of memorable jolly's with the lad. Kenya and Batus, needless to say He lived up to all expectations and beyond on both. Missing for 3 days in his jogging bottoms and Boro shirt on one occasion.
There's also the time we got back to the block after a night shift on guard to find him unconscious next to an empty bottle of southern comfort.
Not forgetting the CFT where he hid in the drying room getting his head down.
I wish him all the best in the world and would love to see the old scrote again if anyone manages to track him down.

It was his fluent German when he was in a drunken stupour that scared me like :lol:

Hello Chaps,

Desperately Seeking Pigsy... :D

Looking to get him to come down to the Army v Navy game at Twickenham on 03-May-08 for what will be the mother of all reunions with a number of other orphans from 8AES.

Any info greatly appreciated.

HAHAHAHA I remember the drying room incident. Lost count of the times when on guard that we were called out to escort him back to camp only to be called out again two hours later after he had managed to sneak out in the boot of someones car. What a Legend.

Even better. He appeared on morning on time for parade but looking like he was about to drop dead. When a certain 1 troop staffy remarked that he looked like shoite he replied:

"Yeah i ran out of vodka last night and no one had any, so i now have too much blood in my alcohol stream"

Resulted in him behind the guard that night which he turned up for pissed. :D

The very same scouser. I spent a whole week behind the guard while i was on guard thanks to him being orderly officer and picking me up on inspection.

If you manage to track him down please tell me how your civy mates get on in a drinking comp with him. Not very well i bet!!

Pigsy ... last seen drinking meths . . . . . . mind you that was back in the Munster Lager, 32 AER Days. If he's still alive! respect! anyone who has a rehab course and has an end of course piss up at the end gets my vote ;)

Never forget when he first turned up at 8AES (22 Engr).

As usual, he was late on parade (for his first day in the squadron), and suddenly realised that he had in fact kept the hangar keys from his last Sqn in his sky rocket, due to the fact that he was duty sapper on his last day...

Quality bloke - where are you Pigsy?!?!? Your presence is required at the Army v Navy game on Sat 03/05.

I have a great picture of him wearing a para beret whilst on tour in Bosnia c.1996 too - I always knew that pigs could fly!

Can anyone host it for me?
