B Squadron ...... Chieftains!!

Post by Gordon360 » Sun Feb 21, 2016 9:11 pm

Good evening all,
Just a quick question ... or more brain picking please?

As some of you may recall, I served in B Squadron LAD waaaaaay back in 1982. I still have my 'exercise folder' which, amongst a lot of info, contains all the registrations of the troop Chieftains .... I say all ... I mean most!!

I'm a little stuck with the registrations of three vehicles, so if you know, please let me know.

c/s 22A - 00EB??
c/s 23B - 00EB??
c/s 24 - 02EB??

I appreciate any help, and hope this doesnt start a war of registrations! lol

Best wishes to all Hussars
Gordon Goodison

Hi Gord
I vaguely remember you from those great days.
If this helps 22A was either 54/64 or 76.
I was on 22B. Best days of my 23 yrs.
All the best
Pinky
Ps: lots of 14/20H on FB to.
Look up Bill McCartney etc etc etc

Hi Gord

I was with Pinky in those days and am fairly sure that the 3 registrations were:

02 EB 03
00 EB 76
00 EB 96

Problem is I was crew on all of them at some time so putting them to call signs is a bit trickier.

Hope that helps.

Dutch

Convinced our 3 ended with:
54
64
76
Could be wrong but that's how I remembered them!!
I'm still in touch with Geordie 'H' Harriman, he's a cop in Vancouver.
Howdy Dutch, hope you are well.
All the best
