I know we used to call him 'Boris', but can't remember his real name.

Phil,

Did he not spend sometime working in the Sgts Mess for awhile in I am almost sure he finished his time there.

He was spotted a few years back and mentioned on a previous thread.

Cheers

Mac

Boris

was a smashing lad but suffered from some terrible ribbing.

He had a little bowel issue after a A squadren smoker on scheme one time that involved Aa couple of sleeping bags (he shit himself in one :lol: got out then went back to bed got in a different bag and shat himself again) needless to say the owner of the other bag was a little displeased

I think the lad who damaged his neck after a squadren bar drinking session was Mad Hutch (Geoff Hutchinsons younger brother) another smashing lad who after passing out was put to bed by Jumbo (a how can I put this tactfully,difficult person to live along with) need I say more

Cheers Trev

That was the word Phil,

he was a big bully and many people took great pleasure when Mad Hutch axed his door and saw him leg it out of a window.

interesting observation for somebody who was handy with his fists he was never to be seen in the Darcy Hall boxing teams strange that

Still I remember I used to take great delight in doctoring his grub when I was his gunner on scorps, he he brown sauce covers a multitude of unhealthy addatives to food, I even took a tin of cat food and served it to him as a sardine sarnie with a bit of tom ketchup the big dollop never noticed and wolfed it down.

Makes me smile tothis day

Trev
