TA - 218 Fd Sqn (V)

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


I joined 218 Field Squadron from the Army Cadets in 1958 when it was part of 114 Regt, the other Squadrons where 216 based in Tottenham, 217 in Holloway, 219 plant in Bethnal Green.When the T.A. was disbanded I transferred to 135 Field Survey at Ewell in Surrey, later when they expanded 73 Engineer Regiment in Nottingham and added 217 Fd Sqn in Holloway I transferred back to London.

I have a number of contacts for 217, also an old OC of 216.

Joined in 1991 after having been medically discharged after passing out of Army Apprentices College, Chepstow.
Became Officer Cadet and almost completed my training at the point the Squadron was disbanded in 1999.
