Top lad you. Cheers.

As a fellow flier of single-thrashing-palm-tree types in NI in the 90’s, I am going to file that in the “things that never happened” file.

They flew from “Dungannon to Cappagh”, so they’d either flown all the way there from Aldergrove for the task meaning the pissed pilot had escaped the attention of everybody there before flying, or they were basing out of Dungannon. Having spent many happy hours and days at Dungannon in the 90s I am unsure of which particular pub in the invariably-friendly-and-welcoming-to-British-service-personnel-town the aircrew would have wandered down to and got pissed in of an afternoon.

The jump seat bit is not impossible. The “taking the NVGs off because of the IR countermeasures “ sounds a bit bollocks. They might not work so well for a bit if the flares go off so the operating crew would perhaps need precautions but a jump seat gash pax would not need to do so.
I never seen this reply until now but I can assure you that the pilots were pissed and another thing I could almost draw a plan from memory of 8th Co Tyrone UDR base and as you know so much about it all but anyone who had a two year tour were gated and never got out so you are talking pish. Also there was a helicopter pad and support as I have been beside it and there was one or two pubs you were allowed into. My dad also had a friend who walked dogs, mostly collies and he left by helicoptor or on foot from Dungannon and he was a remarkable man but im talking with cunts here.
 
Well my good man I will have to dissagree with you and I may in the fullness of time even provide photographic evidence to prove my claims, however at this time I will just agree to disagree with you as I am of the the opinion that you are barely worthy of comment and lack moral fibre. I will carry on with the painting I am busy with and hope you find time for sleep or gainful employment in the future

A few boxes ticked in that and few other recent posts.

Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.

Absolute bollocks, on my 2nd 6 month tour, South Armagh based at Drumadd Bks, I was allowed down town for a few beers and shopping for civilian clothing to wear as escort to WO1 ACC when trundling around the area doing site visits.

Oh, FFS - I thought that particular mongaloid had given up. They both do seem to post at similar early o'clock times of the morning. And tell fables.

@NI-EX-MEDIC - if you are @Robme please spare me the multi-paragraph PM's please.

I will stand corrected as Armagh may have been different but Dungannon and Cookstown were different and I am nearly sure 6 monthers were not allowed out and it was only the postings that could go out.
 
A fellow PhD student friend of mine at another university gets given a private study compartment in the university library. He didn't need it and lent the keys to his mate. A year and a half later my friend summoned to a discplinary for 'inappropriate behaviour in the university library'.... Turns out his mate and his girlfriend both lived at home with their parents so decided to bang inside the compartment...
