Just (finally) joined the site, and looking to see who else is out there that knew me/I knew.
Joined the Regiment at Bovington, and went to radio troop, then KAPE and finally the MDT before moving to 2nd Troop, B Squadron at Hohne, including BATUS and the NI tour in the winter of '78-'79 based in Woodburn.
I was one of the 'Soothern Baas'terds' coming from Sussex, along with the Ford brothers and 'Donkey Delaney'
I was the OC's driver for a while, and the 2IC's driver in Canada, and was in Ginge Mayal's brick in Belfast.
I went ERE to the Air Corps in '80ish, and stayed with them, re-badged until I 'demobbed' in '89.
It would be good to hear from any one from those yeras :-)

Hi Cam
Welcome to the Arc. Sussex is OK could be worse you could come from Essex.

Hi Cam and welcome to the site

Many people here will and do remember you,

Just reading your opening letter brings back memories especially the NI tour 78/79.

all the best

Hell, that's a good start, Bulldog, Quassie & Sam! I'd almost forgotten the nick-name 'Cam' but it's nice to get a memory jog like that.
I have some fond memories from my time with the 14/20 and still have a Chieftain as my screen saver :)
I found my old '22B - The Night Hawks' sweat shirt from the NI tour in '78 a while ago, but as it had been in my loft for 25+ years, it was un-salvageable, which is a real shame!
Do we have a contingent at the Cenotaph each year? I go most years but have never seen any 14/20 cap or blazer badges?
I'll go through the rest of the site over the next few days/weeks and try to catch up...... :D

Hi Cam

Glad you finally found us here.

I don't think we have many that go to the Cenotaph in London but most of us pay our respects at one of the Remembrance parades around the country. I usually go to either Preston or more often Manchester.

Regards to all
Johnny Morris

It's good to see all the names from my time with the Hawks, and a for that 'photo, good god, how young were we then? I'm on 14/20 Facebook site as well, and would love to see any old photo's any one has, especially from NI? We are just having a dig out, and have a couple of boxes of photos I need to go through, and then I'll try to post some.
