30 Squadron

The original Dirty 30!

This is the main page for the squadron or unit. More info will be added here as I get the time, but for now it's a "base" for establishing comms with other members of the same unit. You can post messages for other members of the same unit using the messages link above this blurb, and you can also search for other members of this unit. Once you find them, click on their name to send an email direct to them. Please note that this website doesn't "remember" your emails, they are sent direct from you to the recipient without sappers.co.uk getting in the way. That helps you get in touch quickly and it keeps everything simple and free. Have fun. Gordon

John Anderson runs a website for 30 Sqn with lots of photos, messages and all the interesting stuff on it, I'd recommend you go and visit.  http://sapper696.50megs.com/index.html

There is also another 30 Sqn site run by Roger Lakeman, which may be for members from the same time period or a different time period, you can find it at www.30fieldsquadron.org.uk

For the older cadre - this message was received March 2012 - My name is John Gardiner I run a small website dedicated to 30 Squadron 1960 to 1970 especially for those who served in Aden 1966/1977. The web address is www.aden30squadronre.5u.com.  Why not give it a click if it applies to you ?

33 Squadron

33 Field until 1959, then independent until 1967, then 33 Field until 1974, then 33 independent until 1992, then 33 field until 2007. Total 26 years independent, 31 years as Field. For reasons like this, I have avoided ALL names such as Amph, Cdo, Indep, Hugh, Pugh and Barney McGrue

Hi Gordon.   33Fld squadron was my first posting after training.It was part of 37Eng Regt comprising 33sqn,10 sqn and 66 plant sqn and 325 engineer park. 33 had the honour of building long kesh internment camp in 1971 before I joined them also building the Bedrock Hilton sqn bar reckoned by many the best sqn bar ever..33 sqn went  back to NI in 1972 for op motorman and did 6 weeks at Ballykelly then 6 weeks in the maze(long kesh.)  33 sqn joined 37 eng reg in 1967 from Cyprus.  10 sqn moved to BOAR in 1973 as harrier support. and 33 became 33 ind fld sqn.They moved to NI permently in oct 1973 and I was posted to 66 plant sqn to run their signals.section.  Hope this helps.

38 Squadron

This is the main page for the squadron or unit.  At various times, this has been 38 Field Squadron and 38 HQ and SP squadron (a new nomination for squadrons since the 1990s, they didn't exist before that).  Obviously that's why all squadrons are just given a number on the title, rather than a full name.

 REgards, Gordon

Steve (Pete) Stevenson has set up a community page for 38 Sqn which will have all sorts of photos, memories and stories on it as it grows.  Why not pay it a visit once you've recorded your service details on here?  The link is http://38berlin.moonfruit.com/

There's also a Facebook group here http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=14428541113
