Hardrations

Thanks very much

Yet another fascinating thought provoking find, makes an interesting comparison with the ongoing project to establish a synopsis of the Canadian 2nd Corps in the immediate Post War period which included a number of units originally recruited in Manitoba

Interesting find Hardrations, I recall that there was a few Mennonite communities in Belize, we offered our help where we could but they wanted nothing to do with the British Army!

Nowt to do with RN, but having got on to button sticks & things..................

Our greatcoats were hung from below a shelf on which small packs etc, were on show. For months I was lucky, I had plastic GS buttons on the coat. No one worried until a pre-Admin inspection by the CO was scheduled. "Get 'em changed !" they said . "........ By tomorrow !!!". It was after the evening meal when I was told. Panic, mad dash to BQMS Stores. " Buttons lad ?" said the storeman " Rules is you bring the old ones & I'll swap 'em. No old ones, no can do !". Hot foot back, plastic buttons hacked off with Jack knife, Rush to G 1098 again, storeman irritated at being disturbed out of office hours hardly looked up from reading his Hank Jansen. " You've a problem " he sneered " ........ I've not got any ". Problem indeed but an old sweat helped out. Old buttons were back on greatcoat quick time and held in place behind the material with spare boot laces. And next morning, on the high level inspection, no one took the slightest notice of the plastic GS buttons.

I've just joined this site, so be gentle. Wink
I was in the REME, (Brown Job) and between '65 and '68 we had several lads from the Fleet Air Arm with us in Detmold as well as being stationed with Army Air Corps flights around BAOR.
Killicks and Tiffys were crew chiefs and Crew members on aircraft repairs and servicing.

A few of the names I recall were Pete Timmins, Willy Summerside, Blood Reid and Baz  Holmes.
Willy was a member of the unit Rugby team and the Nondescripts rugby team who were a mixture of 71 A/C Wksps and 4 Armd Wksps and played friendly games against all-comers.

Parky

Welcome aboard

Always good to attract new members and add to the collective memories of a bygone age

Webmaster Steve also has connections with Willich but after your time I think.

Thanks for the welcome, JPW.
One thing I can never forget about Detmold was Trafalgar Day celebrations where we had to sup a tot before being allowed into the screws mess. In '66 I was setting off home that day after picking up one of the Blue Jobs from the mess and he was legless. When we got into Belgium the news came through about the Aberfan disaster. That sobered Brummy up, though he made up for it on the ferry.

Welcome Parky, I was in 21 Army Sp Sqn RE 75-77 and left when 40 Army Sp Regt RE disbanded Oct 77, that is when Capt Chris Davies became Major OC from adjutant of the regiment

BTW I’m not webmaster merely NCO i/c marching reliefs!

Steve, I arrived there about Aug '77 and was there before Davies arrived, so it was 40 Army Spt then until it became 21.

40 Army Sup Regt RE consisted of 21, 41 and 46 Army Sup Sqns, 41 and 46 (in Paderborn) were to be manned by the TA in war, we could have met as I was Orderly Cpl up Oct 77 when I left for 30 Fd Sqn Iserlohn, working for the RSM Brian Cox and the SSM 21 Bob Roberts, it was an easy going unit, Chris Davies was adjutant when I arrived on the MT in 75, we met up last year at a brilliant Willich reunion, BTW he retired early as a full Col getting the MBE after the Falklands War being OC of 9 Para Sqn

We just overlapped on Willich, Steve. Memories are a bit faded now, but as I recall, Wilf must have taken over from you as Ord Cpl, followed by Andy - last names long gone. Mal Mizon took over as WO1 - SSM of 21. Bob Roberts had a silent drill squad for the schutzenfest an polished it off with a Goose Step march with roses fixed to the SLR's. It went down well with the locals, surprisingly.
