Um yeah thats when I think I was there. The inf was the QOH I don't know which mob but their motto was Quiddich n Rye or something. They were replaced by the Queens whilst I was there.Anyone deploy for the Emergency in July 1977. The Guats were threatening to invade (again). The Garrison was reinforced by a Squadron of Harriers, and I think an Infantry Battalion. The threat was ramped up when the Guats loaded their only running tank, an M3 Grant, onto the back of a low loader outside the Presidential Palace in Guatemala City, and drove up to the Guat Engineer Camp just below the Cadenas OP (Punta Melchior Mendez?). They unloaded the tank, it drove along the road parallel to the OP, and then it was promptly re-loaded onto the trailer before being driven off back to Guatemala City.
I think 3 Queens were the resident unit at the time.
Unfortunately, at 63, I cant remember the Operational Name given for the reinforcement.
I spent Christmas day on stunning white sand beach close to Punta Gorda' drinking Rum and coke and shagging a stunning light skinned, grey eyed West Indian girl calledDawn. Mmmmmm she was loverly.
