Re: Mick Herbert and Joe Cotton shooting

Thanks for posting these, as I wrote in a Hawk in Ireland I was on a night off with my half troop from Newry and was at Gosford that night. Mick came in the bar and we had a pint together before he left, for what I thought was Newton Hamilton. Al Bev put me right on that and I've since changed it. M...

Happy Christmas

IMG_20141217_0001.jpg This is the card we had designed for Christmas 1990, little did we know how relevant it would be. We deployed to the Gulf that Christmas. The original art work was framed and given to the Sergeants Mess early 1992, I don't know if it was ever hung or not. I can't read the cart...

Re: A Hawk in Ireland

How the memory plays tricks, it's amazing to recall the names long forgotten. I think Ernie Pattle was in the troop, I remember I once had to stop him punching Jock Hynes after a bit of name calling (he was going to do a bit more than punch him). It was the first and only time that I saw Ernie in a ...

Re: A Hawk in Ireland

Thanks for all your comments, none taken personally. I'm amending the original to read that the bucket of piss was thrown at the end of our tour when we handed over to the QOH, well deserved it was to. Kev Whittaker was also helpful with his account of the ND on our first tour at Gosford. I mentione...

Re: Escalation of Troubles in Ukraine

There's talk of European leaders putting pressure on Putin but they won't because they'd be afraid of Russia turning off the gas taps to Europe (they come, I believe via the Ukraine). If that happens we will be hit with rising gas prices and probably shortages which will effect the poorest in our so...

Re: C Sqn in Northern Ireland 1970 - 1971

This is good to see, recently I've started to write about my own experiences on the tours with A&D Sqns (I'm up to 14000 words so far). It's a war the government and society have chosen to forget, yet I suspect there are many Hawks who either haven't or can't forget. When you look back at old Ha...

Re: Harold Percival

Hi Al

Good to here from you, all's well here. Memories fade so some of the details were clearly wrong, having said that it was my last pint with a good mate and a cherished memory. As for the shooting it seems that we all got away with it with the sad exception of Mr Williams-Wynn.

Re: Harold Percival

Remembrance aquired a new meaning for me this weekend. I sat at the reunion dinner at a table with Dusty and Sheila Fog and the death of Mick Herbert came up. Mick was a good friend to me, as the new boy and worse still a boy soldier in 2nd troop A squadron January 1967, Paderbourne, it was Mick, wh...

So jonny you were knackered, If I remember correctly so was Woods 27 and me as we draged you along. The Bft was a ball buster 1.5 miles up hill but at least the second 1.5 was down again. And what about the escape and evation exercise that ended up on the Mosel. Or the how to be run aver by a tank a...
