          Just like to echo the comments of my former brick commander, Dave Lukins, and wish all the guys in 2RTR all the very best of luck, and my wishes for a speedy recovery, to a fellow tank driver,

          Joined up June 1972 aged 17yrs 4 months
          DBP August 1978,

          Served all my time with "A" Sqn 1st RTR, apart from a 6 month posting to "B" Sqn, for a tour of Norther Ireland in 1977, rose to the dizzy heights of L/Cpl, was a driver of MBT Chieftain, AFV Wheeled, Saracen, Ferret, Mks 1, 2, 5, Driver AFV tracked Scorpion and Spartan, Scorpion gunner, and Clansman radio opeator Landrover, and Bedford mk 3 tonner, was, a B1 guided missile operator on Swingfire Mk5, and a ZB298 ground surveillance radar operator, Spartan, Oh and a Regimental Policeman, fired most things the Army had, from pistols up to 120mm, although the 84mm Carl Gustav gave me the biggest fright, never handled a grenade, heavy mortar or a bayonet, and after a UN tour of Cyprus in 75, me and three others thought it would be a jolly jape to hitch hike back to Blighty, which we did, took us three weeks

                            Cadet from 1963 through NDA and IMA to officer in 1967 and retired in 2002.

                            Poor in maths, so can't figure the years out!
