what intake?

#1
To give everyone a flavour of when we all joined hows about giving the intake/platoon and year of joining, to give added zip to the thread, try and remember an event and a top 10 hit from that period.

i.e.

89c,(Blenheim)

Deal Bombing

Ride on Time, Black Box.(i'm sick of that track)
