I left Werl in May 1982 & was in C Coy fitter section for my sins. I was with 1 Queens & stayed in Werl when the Black Jocks arrived in 1980. Loved the LAD but hated the Black Jocks. Luckily I managed to do my Class 1 course while I was there & also bagged a six month detachment to BATUS, returning to Werl just in time to be posted in May 1982. Missed the Falklands by a whisker. I think the Black Jocks were actually on battlegroup training in Canada when I left. Guys I remember from D Coy fitter section were Dave Heap, the tiffy who ended up being my boss in another posting, (damn good bloke), Chris Mayes, Geordie Campbell, Neil Lay, Fred Fisher & Eddie was the full screw, (can't remember his surname though). Eddie had apparently done time in Colly for selling a Land Rover to the natives while serving with 22 SAS in the Oman.

Guys in my own section were: Taff Pike - (the Druid), John Law (electrician), Steve Cully (armourer), John Taylor & the tiffy was a fantastic guy known as 'Geordie' again I can't remember his full name.

Not sure how many of the above you may remember, as some of them are probably from the 1 Queens days, but hopefully that may have jogged the old memory for you.
