Strangest thing seen on a Training area!

:-X :-X :-X :-XJESUS! :-X
Who was wearing the high heels? You? the bloke? or the doll? (or the sheep?)

Household Div stopping dead in their tracks, middle of Salisbury Plain, rigging up a marquee and breaking out the mess silver for a full sit-down mess kit dinner with fake war raging all around them.


Got to be the "human washdown point" at BATUS.
I thought the mobile bath and shower unit was a myth until I got trucked there between exercise phases.  Still, it was easy to find, it's normally about 3 clicks in front of the Artillery gun line.

It was a bit scary though, the people running it were all 65 yr old CPL's who dribbled while they watched you get changed.

Good job I had clean backtefrontyinsideouties on!
I thought 4 Regt AAC were always first to the FEBA, not the case Wolfgangs Bratty wagon always beat us there.

Well he did in Saltau anyway.
Might be wrong & stand to be corrected but wasn't it a landrover CP (58b i think) from 4 Regt that hit the only tree on BATUS during broad daylight with nothing else around but gophers.

Perhaps he was performing an iner & outer rimiter check for Danny F**kkin Walker.
Gyro...that happens a lot on STANTA, most of the delivery guys are moonlighting soldiers.
The rhythmical flashing of a LR's headlights on the Sennybridge training area.  Contents of LR found to the Training Major and the MO (female).


our wksps 2ic, taking us out in convoy at night,across supposidly ranges that was´nt in use. until the sound of shells landing in close proximity made us realise the ranges were in use.
Maybe I'm getting old but I could have sworn I saw a tank flying through the air near Brecon over the weekend!

Extremely old bloke kitted out in hunting kit (old fashioned, plus fours etc), with sherlock holmes hat, two Irish setters and a falcon. Yes, an actual trained hunting bird on his arm.

It was in Catterick, we came tabbing over a slope near the tracked vehicle park and saw this fella meander out of the mist, tip his hat to us and wander off towards RAF wood.

2 OTC cadets (fortunately opposite sexes) going for it in the back of a LR like it was their last day on earth...the funny bit was when the 3 of us in the covert OP they'd parked next to cheered just as he was hitting the vinegar stroke causing her to launch him off, pure quality.

Yeah you are correct he was always first on the ranges at Soltau as well!
A corpse?

One of 7Sigs nodes rocked up to the ex location, started setting up and someone stumbled, literally, over the body of a (as we found out) murder victim.

That put a bit of a dent in the exercise planning as the Kripo kept everyone there for ages.
