The Sabot uses Kinetic energy, travels at 1,470 meters per second, no damage to target apart from a neat hole as small in dia as a can of sloppy peas, its the Decompression followed by the sudden return to norm which kills, sucks you in, blows you out, just got to plug the holes and pick up the pieces of

bodies. then you got a free tank.

Might be slightly out on the speed not by much but it was 20 odd years ago.

I can honestly say you would not want your free tank! Having seen the effects on TELIC 1, trust me!

Lympstone and Aldershot. Switch from Paras to Marines?

 

Was a matelot medic. Just prior to signing up (97), the 3 services combined the 1st part of training for medics at DMSTC near Aldershot.

 

Spent nearly all of my time with the bootnecks, after medic training.

We did the denial in 3R placing charges around the breach blocks. Plenty of them that had partially or fully cooked off which weren’t nice.

As a Shotonian I must say there is so much more to Aldershot than Para Reg.

 

I mean, since they moved to Colchester, we have been blessed with such joys as unemployment and crime aswell as becoming a 3rd World toilet.

 

The 'Home of the British Army' is a total cess pit.

Keogh barracks; couldn't remember the name. In our training group the RAF birds were the fittest.

 

Many nights out in Aldershot; Woking and Guilford. Inc Cheeks; spent a night in the photo booth at woking station; until the 1st train.

Now then treve see you in Cyprus mate!!! 

Been in the RAF for 22 and counting. God knows why but I can't bring myself to leave. Sat here in the cold due to heating being ripped out. Got to love this government. But despite that everywhere I go I take my Wednesday shirt.

Cheeks-Thursday nights were mega. Newie challenge was to nick a handbag off a partner of a Para Reg bloke, take a dump in it toilets in it and get it slipped back without them catching you. 

 

I ended up getting one of the Keogh female nurses on ROP’s cos she was late on parade cos she was prisoner in my bunk in Aldershot. lol

Spent half my youth in there, probably still got a bit of the sticky carpet stuck on my old going out shoes.

 

Sadly, its gone, like everything else that was ever good about Aldershot.
