Hi All,
Unfortunately I never served with the 9/12th, but my father did SSGT TOM GILL (SQMS). Early seventies we were based at Hobart Barracks, lived in MQ at Poggenpohl Strasse. Then in 77 we moved to Omagh for 18 mnths, moved then to Minden on Attch until 1978.
I would like to possibly hear from anyone who knew my father. He served for 20yrs, Aden, Canada, Northern Ireland(3 tours), Munster (where I was born) Bielefeld, Lemgo. Detmold and Minden, to name but a few...

Peter,
I may be wrong but I believe we used CVR(W) in Omagh. Any tracked vehs were politically sensitive, all called 'Tanks'. 9/12 could have been a resident unit in Omagh and this would reflect as the owning unit in the vehicle docs. Windsor and BAOR Units had CVR(T). The TA, as you correctly state, had CVR(W). This info is based upon knowledge gained when, at one time, my war role was BEME Corps Border Surveillence Force under command of Comd Armd, 1 Br Corps. We only had one Ex in my time in which all Reg and TA recce units deployed.

Hi Bob,
We moved from Detmold to Omagh in 1975 till 1977, dad was in 9/12th 1st troop C sqd. On base I never saw one track vehicle. Remember, scouts/ saladins/ ferrets/ stally's. Remember on base AAC had sioux and gazelles, never thought about the fact there were no tanks.
