I did 6 months as 6f a few years back, most enjoyable.

Funny thing was, even though I had done a few Med Mans by that time, it wasnt til I was in a red top that I saw the big picture (obviously you know whats meant to be going on, but looking through the commanders letterboxes doesnt really fuel the imagination from the bottom of dead ground!!! Having been on the crew/commanded 5 python shoots out there, it was on safety that I asked 6 if the smoke barrage was a new thing-he just looked at me as though I was stupid and said that it was normal for all M.M's! I couldnt be arsed to explain to him how little battlefield you see from our tanks

I did my stint as 62, most enlightening. :D

I was there in Mar - Jun '89. I was sent there as a Section Comd :? When I was in fact a Spr. I was then put in a GD section (four of us) doing route denial, minefields, craters (using @200lbs of PE at a time) booby traps (all in soviet style) etc for the next four months. What a fantastic time that was :D It was all brought back to me today when I saw one of the RCT (now RLC) drivers who was in the 6 group walking around the barracks this morning :)

I was out there doing BATSIMS a couple of years ago. Some really long hours hours were put in. I think the worst thing was the mossies. You'd got to set up at dawn for a day exercise and you'd getten bitten to fcuk then because you'd be the only two people around and the same would happen when you went to set up for the evening exercises! The Longhorn is a top bar. At $6 (approx £2.50) for 3 pints you can't complain.

Had an excellent 11mths out there 96/97, still trying to wangle another journey. By all accounts the town is still the same although rumours that Teasers/Cheaters has now closed down, but hey the Sin Bin will never change. Sunday mornings in "Smitty's" in the mall was always a giggle to see who had trapped the most horrid crocodilopig the night before.

'Hello <insert 6 callsign>... Backdoor'
*snigger*

That phrase makes me chuckle, even now. :D

I take it you must be a fitter. Either that or a knocker trying to improve his credibility/repuation by hanging around with planties.
 
#16
I was a Fitter however it was the Planties that 'hung around' with the Fitters... mainly cos they'd broken yet another bit of Plant... They didnt really have much choice!

Saying that, the Planties were a good bunch of lads. A pain in the ARRSE at times when they manage to run out of fuel by the OXO factory ferinstance, but a good bunch nevertheless..
