Stories of the B3

#4
I'd carried an LMG for a few days and was tasked with setting up a fire position in some bushes at Hawley for a bridge build.
I rested my helmet on the top of the mag and heard someone sneaking up behind me on the gravel.
I looked round and a Cpl was trying to see if I had dozed off. He asked how long I had been there and looking at the bridge, I said about 90 minutes and was due to be relieved soon.
When he went, I noticed they were actually stripping out and i'd been asleep in the bushes for several hours :D

Cue evil laugh.....Muahahahaaaaaaaa :twisted:

Aye stand corrected Sir,
I did spend 3 weeks at Southwood, to do MGB, MWF and demonstrated to the "starchies" how to do Watermanship properly as Hawley lake is a bit downsize from Upnor Hard and Dover Harbour.

Fk it was 30 years ago though, so my simple mind shifts around like a EWBB launching nose without SwayBrace.
Just because the pins in doesn't mean it will stay there :D

I was with one of first intakes through Gib in 84 and only did a year a Dover

I believe a few years before I got to Dover they did 2 years at JLRRE and less at Cove

They were called Boy Soldiers then and 2 years was the standard training time.
I went through in 77 (last Century) and the P Staff were wingin then that we would not have enough experience and knowledge to fit in with the "Regular Sappers" ?
