WHAT IS THE BEST MEDICAL UNIT YOU HAVE SERVED IN AND WHAT MA

#1
I couldn’t resist asking this as two med units have just had a bashing. There must be one unit that was the best you have served in, it doesn’t have to be the best unit ever just the best med unit. I know that a number of med units have amalgamated in the last few years and I haven’t a clue what they used to be called so amend you comments and give old unit and the new unit that it is part of.

16 Fd Amb before morphing into 16 Armd Fd Amb.

Superb units, with characters and soldiers wanting to get a job done. Great hierachies and obviously a few black sheep. But great times in great units.

I started at 6 Fd Fce Fd Amb and nearly finished at 16 Armd Fd Amb!

Unfortunately can't really reply to this I have only worked with the worst 24 AFA, 1 AFA and 5GS.

Only Haslar and Cyprus were fun but they are in a different group. Of course I could have just been unlucky?

But i'm with FLL on haslar & cyprus!

5 Armd Fld Amb when it was in Munster before GW1 (1987). A chap called P**** L**** Was in charge. Top Unit, Quality medics and RCT blokes.

Unfortunately soon after that a guy called "R Squared" came as CO and the whole place went to rat pooh. The unit never seemed to recover after that. Apparently it got even worse when they moved to preston as can be seen in another thread :oops: :oops:

Ahh well nothing lasts forever. :cry: :cry:

Well, my 1st unit was 4 AFA. Great at the time, but lots of name calling between us and the Joeys.

Still a Trogg, but now with 33FH and it is in the top 2 of my best units ever. Crackin' top corridor and the veiws are the best you can ask for. I will miss it when I go.

Have to say 22 fd Hosp 88 - 92 Powerlifting Rass Man and the house on the hill on a fiday night, plus eating in the CMH cookhouse. An awesome mad mad unit full of top blokes living to the full.

Good rugby and tug of war teams great smokers on a Friday afternoon and lots of boxing (not queensbury rules) and loads of women all a squaddie needs.

But above all else we could do the biz when the brown and smelly hit the fan.

Some of you may have heard the stories but it was madder and better than that!!

Tentage techs forever!!!
