during `64 - 67 we had the `pigs` as well as the new 432, the `pigs` were just used to carry G10 mainly and the 432s took over as personel carriers, I remember experimenting with them to fit them out for our RE tasks, like mounting class 30 tracking on the front and installing racking inside to stow our gear. We sank one or two trying to `swim` across the Weser. Happy days.

Was there any truth in the rumour that the "Pigs" had been sold, and had to be re-purchased for use over here?

I seem to remember that story going around just after I first came across them in 1971.

Paul.
I was recce squadron leader's FFR driver in 1977. He had a lot of wants, so I spent a lot of time with the squadron's REME Tiffy getting things done.

He told how how he'd been attached RTR, tasked with keeping the Chieftain on the road during the making of that advert. Join The Professionals, blah eggs from German farmers, earn £40 per week.

He related how we'd sold off the Pigs to Portugal in the late 60s, only to realise we needed them in NI, and bought them back. Then they set about uparmouring them. With which the gearboxes couldn't cope.

Monday morning O-group every week: "How much oil in the gearboxes?" Too much, seals blew. Not enough, they seized .

Turns out there wasn't a right answer. Either you blew the seals or seized the gearbox.
