The BBC club started in the cellar.

The BBC club was in the cellar when I was attached to them, so maybe it was before 76 maybe 74? My memory is not so good these days. I was with them when the French adventure training was on, canoing down the ardesh river.
The BBC was re-furbished in 1969/1970 in the basement across the road from 71/ac wksp, one of the rules they came up with when it reopened was Cpls could invite 2 guests, l/cpl.s one, and Cfn none, I still hate the thought of that posting! Ian.

Good morning gents, unfortunatly things change. I still remember my first day with Army Aviation as if it were yesterday.

In june 1971 I was informed by my sqn ldr ( 15/19H ) that I was going ERE to BFPO 41, 655 sqn Army Aviation,found out by asking around that I was off to Detmold,The AAC were different  those days as all their manpower was provided by all arms,there was no direct entry from civi st untill 1973,anyway 655 was in the change from RA personel to RAC.
I arrived at Detmold on a sunday afternoon in june and was duly squared away in the attic untill my quater was ready. On the monday morning just before first parade I made my way outside....not a sinner in sight,I hung around for 15 mins Nothing, at  nearly 0830 I see a blue berret and asked him what time muster parade was, after giving me a wiered look he said " no parades here son just go down the cellar bar their all down there.That my introduction to the AAC, as I said I left 655 in 74,if you were both there after 74 you may know my very good friend Robert George ( paddy ) Church, and be careful what you say as I am still in contact with him a we meet quite often.


It was 74 that I arrived there, had to be because I left Germany in 84 after 8 years in BAOR and 655 sqn was my first posting in BAOR. One name that comes to mind was Dave McCaldon (Spelling?). Oh and Paul Barton was a full screw clerk in HQ. My office was next door to the 700 office.
