One lad went on leave to Argentina to buy polo ponies. Happy days!

They seemed to like messing with fireworks both large and small, one officer blew out the rear wall of the mess in Paderborn playing with fireworks LOL, yes happy days.

Fireworks ha ha ha my old man back in '77 was doing a display for the families ( SLoopys did a spiffing BBQ) whenhe was walking past an M F O box full of fireworks (no health and safety to worry about back then) and he dropped a lighting taper in the box ther were 4 boxes all next to each other well the fireworks display was spectacular to say the least even though it only lasted about 2 minuets leaving 4 smouldering boxes a load of hysterical mums and kids and a load of pissed up squaddies laughing their tits off like i said the sloppies did spiffing good BBQ happy days lol!

It would have been typical of him. Were you there when Ray Lawley blew the windows out in the Sgts Mess during the 1812 Overture?

The officers were a mad bunch when left alone in the mess though. The high-jinks continued long after we moved to England and back to Germany after that.

Did you make the move to Tidworth? I don't remember you from Warninster with the Big C. Did you know we have a "Fitters Troop" in the OCA?

When it came to devastating the mess, our Ruperts found that a brisk game of Mess Rugger was sufficient. Rolling Eyes

Yes and they seemed to get away with it but if it had happened in the other ranks mess charges would be brought against those responsible "Damned bad show R S M charges all round what" lol!

I was only with them in Paderborn, I was there during the silver jubilee, whenever that was and then moved to the LAD of the 9/12 Lancers in Munster. When it came to crazy officers the cavalry regiments had more than their share.

Having said that the Army Air Corps had a few fruit loops as well lol!

Did you stay on with the 17/21st at Swinton Kaserne Eric?

We used to say that when it came to high-jinks it was classed as "hooliganism" amongst OR's but "high spirits" when it came to officers living in.

By the time I had found my way through the QRIH and the Lancers the manning office decided I needed to meet real drinkers and the barstuards posted me to 16 Tank Tptr Sqn in Fallingbostel and there I met the polish workers (MSO), boy they could make the jinks of any officers/sgts mess look like childs play.

They were all old men, straight out of the case books of WWII but they still kicked some shit around. Shocked

Ah, the famous MoJo's. Worked with them a couple of times. What a unique outfit. They'd set up camp on the parade square then drink themselves insensible before loading the panzers up the next day.

Now that MUST be a posting to remember!

It sure was. We had one old boy who did the canvasse covers for the transporters and he had his own little shop, the walls were covered with photo's from WWII and I spent a whole day in that dungeon with him going through his entire history of the war, oh and three bottles of blue Vodka along the way.

Just sitting in there talking to him the whole war seemed so recent and real, you would not get that feeling watching a movie, nor would it be real. He was the real thing and he spent time in Bergen Belsen.

After this posting the manning office, in their lack of wisdom, promoted me to Sgt and sent me off to HQ REME 3rd Armd div in Korbecke, by which time I was almost an alcoholic bom

Blue label vodka would have been unheard of in the UK at that time I'm nearly sure?

It's true though; a lot of those MoJo's had been to hell and back in WW2. I suppose they're all dead or at least retired now. Another rich chapter in the history of BAOR gone.

I've never even been to Korbecke so I can't say anything about the place but I'll be the routine was a bit less slavish than belonging to a regimental LAD?

The Div HQ was the silver platter stuff in comparison, I was the REME side Chief Clerk and I had a WO1 super clerk over me, apart from that it was all Officers. On exercise we had two radio villages, one forward and one step up in the rear, they would alternate as we advanced, ie they leap frog each other to keep coms working whilst the HQ was on the move, all interesting stuff and new to me.

We had cutlery and real plates in the tented dining area, alas no candle lit dinners LOL. Food was fit for a Queen, but hey the Officers smell just as bad on ex as we OR's. On ex I had two roles, driver and radio stags with the officers. Great fun and I learned a lot of what most of us grunts do not see.

I cannot remember the name of the Kersene but it overlooked the Mohnesee damm and was a spectacular place. I kept waiting for the damm busters to fly over LOL.

I hated the duty clerk bit as the COS and the GOC were a pain in the butt, so I used to do ROS instead, not that the RSM was happy about it.

Yep, that's downside of being attached at Bde level or above - too many chiefs and not enough indians. Of course you being of the snco persuasion were maybe too noticable. OR's could probably be almost invisible.

Yep, that's downside of being attached at Bde level or above - too many chiefs and not enough indians. Of course you being of the snco persuasion were maybe too noticable. OR's could probably be almost invisible.

Withing the HQ itself I never saw an OR, lots of civilians.

Well there was one Lance jack who was the driver for CREME but he messed his ticket when he got involved with my filing clerk, and her husband was a SSGT in the supporting signal regiment. As half the regiment wanted his head on a stick, he was posted post haste. Little barstuard, I had to drive CREME about BAOR whilst a new driver could be found.

CREME joked for a long time after about having a Sgt driver, how embarrasing.

Have you checked out our OCA Fitters Troop yet? A guy called John Sefton is I/C. Don't remember him myself but you might.

Sorry never heard of him but then I left the Army in 82, that is over 20 years ago so most of the chaps I knew will be out by now.

You get a lot of the Paderborn REME going to these gigs though. The posting has assumed almost legendary status. If you login at http://qrh-crossbelts.com/ you'll find Bob Peden there, Jim McLucas, George Moores and a few others.


Waheyy - I can now post links! Very Happy
