175 Inland Water Transport Regt

175 IWT Regiment AER. (IWT=Inland Water Transport). (AER= Army Emergency Reserve the forerunner to the present TA.)

Spike is the first person to ask for this squadron/ regt to be created, so anyone who can tell me anything about it please feel free to get in touch.  Failing that, hopefully Spike will have some memories/ stories and photos to provide which the rest of us can use to find out more about it.  REgards, Gordon

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 getting in the way. That helps you get in touch quickly and it keeps everything simple and free. Have fun. Gordon
