Les wrote:I know we should be talking about Reg but to enlarge a bit on Jim Passam's escapade. He was on guard and asked if he could go for a run whilest off stag. His run took him past a couple of Gasthouses so Jim being Jim called in for a half litre or two. He then decided to return to Barracks and caught the ubahn equivelent to the circle line which goes from east Berlin to West and back again. He nodded off and was woken up by the East Berlin police who , after a bit of a chat let him go . He again fell asleep to be awakened by the same east German Guards at the same place on the next circuit . This time they kept him. I believe his release came after the Brit sector commander made a personal request to his East German counterpart.

I believe this was the occasion he had borrowed my shoes :D

I remember Sgt Reg Burkey. His claim to fame was running his household like the Guards training depot and sorting out a noisy budgie. Also rumour had it that the cat did enjoy its time in the oven. Where would we be without these characters. :D :D Al Jones.

Hi

When Reg Left the Regiment he went to work for Wilson's Brewery as a stock taker visiting pubs. The weird thing about it is that Wally Taylor was his boss.

Hi Tony. I recall Wally. Have a photo of him somewhere. Will dig it out and post it when found. Cheers, Scouse Jones.
