Hi lads,

Now I know there are a few RMP lads on this site but never mind. The question is did you ever exchange BFG coupons for tyres, spotlights etc? Evil or Very Mad

One thing missing from REME tool kits in those days were Metric Spanners and sockets. How else could one repair without problems were continental cars?

yes, for a very nice pair of sunglasses at the BP station at wankum. i was delivering a scammel from bielefeld to antwerp and bringing an AEC back. just onto the autobhan at bielefeld the clutch went, so we crashed the gearbox all the way there. the sun was just coming up when we got to wankum. trying to get the scammel under the canopy with no clutch, and then trying to get the thing to "stall' in first gear was great fun. so me and the recce mech treated ourselves to a pair of sunglasses each.

RATIO used to sell some cheap metric tools, which would quickly disappear if you left your tool box open..........during lunch time.

Or to expand it, did you trade booze or fags for goods with Germans?

Not that I ever did that of course!

In those days I smoked Kensitas which, if you remember, came with Coupons, 10 in a packet of 20. I built up quite a collection over 5 years (200 fags per week) and when I was posted back to the UK I redeemed them for a Magazine Rack - that's what you call a freebie!! Cool Cool

I just kept mine on my SLR or SMG with spares in pouches.

Wonder if squaddies are still hardened smokers these days? Virtually everyone did when I was in.

Not so much anymore - you still get loads of fags however the NHS/Medical Services are promoting healthier lifestyles and generally soldiers have become more aware of fitness and health as the information is more readily available.

I think, to be honest, I would have been elligible for the LSGC as both stints in the Army, making 12 years service in total, were graded exemplary. I do think, however, that my CO may have been less inclined to let me have it as I was an expert trouble dodger, leaving mayhem and destruction in my wake (never to be proven in my direction). A good soldier indeed Very Happy

On another note - I was fined 1 weeks pay for losing my MoD90 (they do not charge you for that any more!!!). Had 1 weeks ROPs for not attending a duty (Guard duty, I was on leave but the orders came out on my last day and I did not read them. Apparently local leave means you still do duties...).

Finally - one weeks ROPs for being late for PT - car broke down and in those days did not have a mobile phone. RSM told me I should have knocked on someones door and asked to use their phone - 5am in a German village - like they would have been chuffed to open the door to an Englaender....!
