516 STRE

This is just a holding page until someone from 516 gets in contact with me to provide me with some background info on exact details.


I was in 516 from '76 to '78, best time I ever had in the Corps. We covered the fireman's strike in '76 and I got detached to Kenya to build a 2 pump servo for the Kenyan Rifles. I also had a 2 week detachment to Belize to replace and repair an RAF 1million gallon fuel pumping station.

516 was pretty light and lean in those days, an OC, 2ic (Derek Timms), 4 SNCO's & 3 NCO's. I was gutted when I was posted back to Ripon and it proved to be the end of my term in the Corps.
