Like the ubiquitous, (ubiquitous...get it ? eh ? eh ?) Shelldrake, I too did a spell in the servicing bay.

I remember the cheerfull cracking sound as my merry men blasted in the old XG 279 and blew all the seals in the Stalwart torsion bar housings.

The Carry On movie about the lads doing their time in the Army. As soon as I see them in B.D I can smell it and feel it. Surprisingly even though I was Cdn Army it still hit close to home about the Cdn. Guards Depot.

Grease nipples the bain of my life. Why did they put them in such easily accsesible places ?

Pumping that Ody box thinking the grease was going in only to remove it and have a blast of high pressure xg 279 shoot across the Tank Park.

Watch and Shoot Watch and Shoot.

Funny how things varied between regiments.

I joined JLRRA at Hereford in '57.

Unlike the kids in the video we had the SD cap, never wore a beret until we got into Mustering Troop. Same SD/Denims combination though.

Can't say I feel nostalgic about those days. Too much like Penal Servitude !

Funny you should say that Brum.(Penal Servitude).The wife of a mate of mine described it similarly when reading extracts from a book that has just been released.

For any ex Harrogate brat who may be interested it is by Fred Carslake 57a and titled The Harrogate Army Apprentice.Our Story
