PostSubject: Road accident    8/11/2018, 12:07

In 1978 whilst on exercise I was in a Fox in the Kiel area and involved in a road accident. I was in the 2RTR and was in the turret of a Fox doing 70mph when we rolled, ended up stuck by the neck on a German farmers fence. I am trying to obtain pictures of the accident which was in the Regimental magazine but also trying to get Medical information but I spent the first few days on the critical list and finished hospital treatment in BMH Munster which is sadly closed now. This is a long time ago but I would much appreciate any help that I get in try to get evidence/records/pictures of this incident. Thankyou

Colin,

Can you supply more facts for this site please?

A more accurate date might be more useful. Maybe a more accurate description of location and date is mentioned in the Regimental magazine?

Thanks
Alan

I cannot remember the date exactly but it was July 1978 and we were on exercise in the Schleswig Holstein area of Germany. I would imagine that the details would of been displayed in the August monthly magazine, if it was produced monthly?

Colin,
Does this refer to you? Were you the Sqn Clerk? if it does! Suggest you get onto joining 2 RTR (Not the Face Book Version).

I had a look at the 2RTR. I was a mate or Rowdy Yates  at Muenster.  2RTR (Not a relative!). .

I thought the roll over was black jacko and his crew of Hounslow and sayer the sqn clerk who ended up being called zip head due to his head injuries him and jacko in hospital Hounslow driving minor abrations!

The name rowdy yates rings a bell, short with glasses? I was the squadron clerk and suffered a brain haemorage and fractured skull, Jacko broke his leg in 3 places after getting it caught in the turret mechanism. I am trying to get a copy or picture of the accident and letters/documents of phonecalls between the regiment and my parents so I can make a claim for injuries, then and now

Colin, Rowdy (RiP), was a short guy and a football fanatic. We lived in next blk flats at Roxel.

I am trying to find out more about his passing!

To Alan 8376, I will ask Tony Gregory if he knows anything and I believe Mick Tarren and Dave Furze still live in this area. If you know of anybody that is likely to have a copy of the Regimental magazine around the time of my accident? then I would be grateful if you would share my request. Thankyou. What is your surname please Alan and what Squadron were you in?

I have placed your request with 2 RTR Forum.

I'll then link you with info from contacts at  2 RTR. I have explained to the forum what you seek, inc photo from magazine.

Hi Colin,

I hope all is well with you?  Not heard from you for afew days!

I have tracked a copy of your Fox involved in that accident. Quality of photo not very good!

Paul Hounslow led me to the photo on the 2 RTR site. He sends his regards, but can't add anything to help you futher.





When you contact me, I will send you a Link to the photo.  In the meantime here is that photo.


Regards
Alan

Thanks a lot Alan, more than grateful and anything else would be much appreciated. You still didn't tell me your surname or what squadron you were in. Once again Thankyo, it means a lot to me bcos I have never seen pictures or write up. My short term memory is shot to pieces but I can remember some things from my Army days

Colin,

The Link is no use to you. You must first be a member of 2RTR site!

I could send you the photo?

Send me your email via the PM on this site OR put your email here! I will copy it. You can remove it later today.

I will PM to you my email. Then send your email to me!

Alan

Colin,
You are now on the straight and narrow! I hope the 2 RTR Forum will bring you more info from your crew on that tragic day. At least The Fox Dvr remembers it! Maybe he can back up your future claim?
