The there was a "Brigadiers Hard Rover"

Not so hard in 1982 when a new gung-ho Brigadier arrived that year. He wanted to swap his large plodding Land Rover for a small versatile soft-top fast machine - similar to the air-friendly one's we had at 216 in Aldershot. I was appointed his driver and radio operator and kitted out his flying machine. Together, we would really fly around the Grunewald forest at break-neck speed, him betting that I couldn't make it up some of the steep sandy tracks. If my memory serves, we only had to take a second run once at one particularly deep-sand hill. Fair-play to him, he got out and pushed on the second run as we hammered the thing to the top. Unfortunately, I have more memories of polishing the Land Rover to the nth-degree in preparation for one of the big parades that came around in the summer months. You could eat your breakfast off the axle it was so clean and shiny!

Jim, just saw your posting re my Kure stint. Somehow I missed it. Well coming up to 6 years later I'm finally replying to it. Spent '51 in training 52/53/54 at 20 Arms Bde (6 ADSR) in Munster.
54/55 I was actually at Britcom Z Signal Sqn in Seoul but things were a bit slow due to the wind down of operations in Korea so I was packed off on temporary attachment to the Australian Signals in Kure, Japan where I was used as a DI to try to get their left foot to pass their right foot in an orderly manner. Spent about six months with them on rotating shifts in the cipher office and sigcen. Great food, good accommodation after Seoul. Used to draw a good crowd of other UN personnel at guard mounting. It looked a bit strange with a diminutive (me) 5'7" guard commander in a beret and the rest of the guard generally all over 6' wearing their bush hats going through the guard mounting ceremony, .303 SMLE's and the old style WW1 bayonet, you had to be an acrobat to fix bayonets. But all good things come to an end and I returned back to Seoul for another six months before I was due for rotation back to Blighty. On the way home we got as far as Suez where I was taken off the ship and reassigned to 3 GHQ Signals Regt, Kykko Camp, Nicosia. I was reposted to CSO (Ciphers) Main GHQ MELF until I was finally released, or so I thought in May 56. Then came Suez and I was recalled and spent my time with 2 btn Scot's Guards, 3 Inf Div.

Kieron

Welcome, you will a welcome reinforcement to the Scaley contributors to this site. A very amusing anecdote, did you ever have a similar experience in Long Valley with 216?
