22 BR 20 Bergen Hohne ranges drawn by Malcolm Cleverley. The caption reads "On investigation, there is no fire it is the BV boiling!" after we were stopped on the BR at Hohne by the safety staff who were unaware we had breakfast on the go in the BV!
Franklin's cartoon from the Sun newspaper after the CO's car was vandalised in 1989 at Hemer. A sorry state of affairs really and it can only be a matter of time before the perpetrator of this act is named!
Air Vice Marshall 'Baron' Von Fischer about to test fly his ME109 over South East England. Apparently he was sick everywhere which annoyed Lynn, his long suffering wife, who is quite taken by this 'jump'suit!!!
The Chairman of the Plymouth Branch of the RTR Association Graham Pearson. It is customary to give Graham a wave, preferably with both arms when you see him!!
Queen's Standard Parade - 3RTR drive past at the Windmill Site, Sennelager in 1985. The smoke was lingering after the Challenger 1 tanks of 2 RTR had spluttered past HM the Queen!!!

Mk5 Drive past 1985 Standards Parade at Sennelager. George Forty is the commander and the driver was Chatty Taylor ex-3 RTR.
Ex 3RTR members at the Cambrai Lunch at Bovington in 2007. Look closely as Olo is amongst them, although the smile gives him away!!!
This picture was named Aussies V Brits. I can only assume that the Aussies won comfortably with at least one day to spare. What odd behaviour, and all before homosexuality was legal in the Sgts' Mess!
The CO in Hemer, Rod Brummitt models a new form of head dress, Steph Misun looks on in astonishment! It struck me that he may well have been really jealous of my red tinge in Paderborn!!

Lefty is welcomed back to the Gunnery School at Lulworth by the RSMI for his second tour! (I personally would have F'd some sense into him for having his zip undone!!)
Major (Retd) Colin Hepburn the Regimental Secretary who will have it believed that he never wore a Parkha, Any photographic evidence to be sent to webmaster!
Yes it is that sign with Pete Lip posing beside it.....perhaps this is the most pictured sign in the whole of Germany apart from the one at Belsen!
