66 Squadron

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


Hi folks, just got back from a driving tour in Scotland and thought you might be interested in some photos I took at Oykel Bridge.

dont know if anybody remembers me ,iwas the one that was on gaured that night when that bear ripped the tent to bits. Also on the team that took the canadians on at paddeling down the river,and beat them.Also on the job at Sky.

Yes Eric, was a good trip down the river. Remember that Canadian officer that could not speak English until our Major turned up to welcome us at the bottom and asked if anyone wanted a crate of beer brought out? We wondered about what was going on when we got dumped by helicopter on an island in the middle of the river?
No chance to chicken out?
