My Call Sign

Post by Bob_H » Mon Jul 20, 2015 11:35 am

For a short while in 1971 this was my call sign - 21 (two-one, B Sqn, 1st troop, before it became 25).

45+ years later and the KRH proudly show it off to good advantage.

4th Troop B SQN, Alfie Smiths wagon !
Alfie, Frank Bailey, (loader), Brian Springall (gunner) and me driving,(though that's debatable after the tank bridge incident) my first crew, like my Army number, never to be forgotten !
Then it's Trooper this, an Trooper that
And Trooper how's yer soul?
But it's "Hawks are bloody 'ero's"
When the tanks began to roll!

Had a lot of fun with a great REME Cpl who stuttered..........I was on 22B loading for Frank the tank Woods, Al Medley gunning and JJ Nolan was the driver........The REME fella wanted 2B but kept saying 22B.......I kept saying 22B send over...........No no no no 2B2B22B came the reply........well this went on for a few minutes whilst everybody had a good laugh.........I think Frank put me up to it.............great crew......and obviously B sqn, Hohne. SIMPLY THE BEST.
