    Bruggen (431MU) 89 - 94 and then again to hand it over the the Army (as Javelin Barracks) from 00 - 02.

    The first time I was in MQ's at Wickrath for those who remember it, and then for the last year in Elmpt.

    The second time I was MQ'd at Wildenrath and had an 18 month party winding the unit down, what an amazing time that was, lucky I remember any of it really.

    Never had so much money needed to be spent by so few!

                The horror, the horror.


                  On the lash with Wobbly!

                  Did two tours at Bruggen in the 90's with a 14 month interval between, many of the highlights have already been mentioned on this thread, But I do seem to recall the first beer of the tour (Dorty with ice on the bottle owing to the mally fridge not working properly) jobs a good un! had a near religious awakening type of experience, when visiting the Bitburger brewery and the conversion was complete, although the wobbly runs it very close. Talking of Wobbly I was also on hand when Mrs Wobbly had her first, and I had 2 bottles of Moet won in the Sqn christmas draw so headed over to Wobbly's gaff at Wilders and got completetly hammered with him. In fact that was the overriding theme of going to "Chez Wobbly" sitting in his garden with the Bratties on the "BX special Webber" listening to concerts from the airfield such monsters of rock as Tina Turner, Brian Adams & Bitty McLean (Who?) and the nutters thrashing there bikes up and down the runway when "rock am ring" was in town. Thursday night shift giving the lads an early knock off only to find that no-one wanted to leave until the 9 o clock Shift Shoarma had been delivered and consumed. Happy days indeed.
                  When you're in a hole stop digging!!!


                  Logic will get you from A to B, Imagination will take you anywhere


                    Hehehehe, now those were the days eh? That tale brought back some good BFG memories

                      Only excercised in Germany. 2 weeks in Sennelager, but what a two weeks. 1 Euro for the litre bottles of Becks in the NAAFI. Whore house opposite the camp entrance. Hoegarden with Banana Liquer in the local boozer.......if only I'd had a tour in germany. My beer gut would be much more of an impressive sight.


                        Laarbruch XV sqn 1978-81 and Gutersloh 1982-83 cant really add any more as all the memories I have have been stated already but real happy times the only problem I recall was just not appreciating just how good We had it back then.


                          When I was in Germany.....(Bruggen 97-99)

                          I always worked the late shift on fridays as a result of being still w@ankered on friday morning. Mainly owing to the Rugby club on the night before.

                          Also and rather bizarrely dreading Sunday mornings. Either as a result of waking up somewhere I couldnt pronounce, or if I made it home, having the rugby team kick my door in and tell me I was late for the bus.

                          It would appear those pesky bears have a lot to answer for!

                          But by GOD! was it fun


                            When I

                            When I was in Germany, 431 MU 80-81, Rugby club, Chicken Inn, Fear Drie Inn, MU Wine fests, (saw a bloke doing the front crawl up one of the storm drains wearing a duffle coat after on of those!) October fests (local and the proper one!) New motor. Putting Vodka in the wiper bottle as it was cheaper than screen wash. Sunday nights Queensway, Pops & Eddies, Carls and Piggale in Elmpt then back in time to open up the section as that 'kin hooter was blaring again. Staying in brilliant German hostelries whilst picking up bits of broken bombers and aircrew.

                            83-86 Gutesloh, best 3 years of my life. living above/in the Rugby club, Cracking Mally, Disco DPs at Hovelhof fair during Hill foil? Mengeles Hospital, Gezeke, other charming parts of Senalager. Upsetting the Army with our tally tailered HF Combats? and driving across pristine parade squares in muddy trucks. Punchin Rockapes in Club 47. Rugby tours to Alborg, Frankfurt, Canada, Berlin, or anywhere!
