Tidworth 73-76 8 Field squadron

Are there any old sappers out there that remember me from these days John Povey. I started out as a sapper then became a driver then finished in 76 as OC's personal driver ( Major Rieve) I left just as the squadron returned from Castle Dillon NI.It would be great to hear from anyone who was also there at this time.
