Ja. The man knew more about British armoured doctrine than anyone in BAOR, particularly where everyone would park up for a smoke and a wee when the practice attack was over. If he wasn't an East German spy, someone in the Warsaw Pact int set-up needs shooting. Thanks to him I still find myself burbling nostalgically about bratties when I'm shopping in Sainsbury's.

P.S. SoltAu

IIRC he now runs a camp site up by the Heber crossroads and is very pleased to see anyone who remembers the days of the fully tac blue van=D

He did awesome Frikadellen burgers.He was also great if you needed to know what range you'd be on the following day.

He must be getting on a bit now. Urban myth was he learnt his crosscountry skills driving a kubelwagen back from Russia as a panzergrenadier!!

Perhaps we could arrange a yellow handbag courtesy of Arsse - I'd stump up if anyone is passing his way.

Simroy - well done, Sir! Another Wolfgang thread - just what we needed. Any chance you could throw in a 'Could we do the Falklands again' before lunchtime? Or a 'Gore-tex - outside or inside'?

Mint!

I remember my Mum thinking Soltu was some thing like Butlins as my old man was always there , till my dad decided to take us there for a drive when we was camping near there. Soon changed her mind.

Wolfgang also thought the SLR was shite and Cold War warriors were tour dodging no marks.
Did your grand-dad never tell you that fish never bite when it's raining. Wait until the day after, the fishing is better.

A bite was never my intention, so please do not shoot the messenger. Wolfgang only appeared to be friendly because he was coining it in from thousands of badly trained alcoholic servicemen.

He really did detest those guys (and the SLR).

Think there has to be a tour to dodge for anybody to be considered 'Tour Dodger'.

'No Marks' probably seems about right though.

No, no, no....

You obviously don't understand the rules of ARRSE bingo.

Just keep on using the same old tired phrases time and time over, accuracy isn't a prerequisite.

Ergo : Tour Dodging Gongless No Mark Cold War Warrior.

Jealously, it's a terrible thing.

Not my words mon amie, Wolfgang's words.

He really did despise those useless fat cnuts who sat in his country for 22 years and began ever sentence "When I was on exercise....".

Pretty sure Wolfgang thanked his lucky stars he was serving the fat useless cnuts in DPM, rather than his Warsaw Pact neighbours.

He certainly did but added the caveat, "Ja, those ******* across the wall are better trained and more professional than the shower of fat alchie cnuts I serve at my van".

True dit.
