Bored browsing the web came across this page, though it was a long time ago I remember my days in resources troop as a 'chippy', just wondered what happened to the lads from the squadron. I'm now a paramedic in south Wales.glad to see George Burroughs is still about last I saw him was before he went off to Brunei lol , me and my room mate "blems" used to confound ssm aitken on room inspection as he never found our beer
