Yup, late 80s / early 90s for me (eventually got my TA50 in 1989). The three ScotDiv teams that used to qualify for TASAM reliably around that era were 2/51 (mostly the Western Isles mob, IIRC, a few Queen's Medallists among them) and 3/51; and either Edinburgh UOTC (someone from the 2/51 team joined, and we started to improve) or 2/52 (once a few of us commissioned).Same 20+ years brain and body fade - I guess our paths must have crossed at TASAAM in the 80s. I guess you were with the Jocks (2/51?) - I was 6/7th Queens.
Those happy days when Service Weapons Week at Bisley meant around a thousand competitors, and several hundred support staff from the RAAT task inf battalion to lift targets, direct traffic, and get dicked for GD. When the QM was threatening to use an Eager Beaver to shift the next c**t to park in front of his store, and everyone was carrying an SLR, an SMG, and all of the slings, magazines, and cleaning kits required for each (utter PITA). Throw in pistol and LMG ancils if you were daft enough to be in both pairs
Remember the utter nightmare when it turned out the NRA hadn't deleaded Century Range for several years? Group sizes had shrunk with scoped 5.56 weapons, and rounds started to ricochet from the resulting lumps of lead that had formed; a few Guardsmen got wounded working in the butts, an all-night digging effort failed to resolve it, and we all had to do a Wacky Races impression to Ash Ranges instead... 1988?
