Hi Bill & Ian,

Smashing site well done, I'm sending some pix I took during an outing to the Falklands in 1982, with 1Sqn Deployment Flight Wittering, depicting some of the weather down there then. The GozomeBird one is the last of what was MT RAF Stanley in Aug 82, finally we could come home, Chris Ditcham, The late Jason Woods, Me(Mark Bonney), Kev 'Pepe le Peugh' Pearson, and Sam Weller. MUddy and .. shows the local conditions, ASMT Stanley was the 2 TAC bowsers, one RAF and one stolen, well miss directed from the port :-)

Hope these are of interest.

Great site lads, Thanks.

Thought I'd send in a few pictures of one of the newest members of the MT Family. It's an American built platform and search vehicle which is capable of going 125ft. There is only one and it's stationed at BZN. We also have a new Canadian De-Icer (SDI), Pictures to follow hopefully.

Daz Shaw sent this pic of the 'Old Sheds' from Coningsby 1994

Well done on a totally brilliant site.
I logged on for the first time last night and saw so many names that I recognised from years ago even after my comparatively short time in the RAF MT.
I only joined in '92 and it was great seeing the pictures of old trucks and cars that I've only heard of in the crewroom or at beer calls.

I've attached a photo of my old Bowser from Conningsby in 95-97, well actually it was old Queen Liz's truck but I looked after it for her for 3 years. It was one of the first Scammells delivered to the RAF (after looking through the paper work). It was delivered to the RAF in late '85 and allotted to either Lossie or Kinloss. On arrival to Conningsby in '95 It was resprayed (the wrong shade of green) so I took the opportunity to slap some yellow stickers on but got a bit carried away. After seeing a techie painting the wheels of a Spitfire, I found another way to fill my frustrated time whilst at Thunderstorm Level 1, and painted her wheels silver. After a few weeks L06 became known as the ICE-CREAM VAN. It looked superb but unfortunately it spent more time in MTSS than at Tanker pool.
More Photos (once I've dug them out) and Stories to follow soon.

Top right is me delivering the bottled water to the accomodation in Deci in 87, gotta love those afternoons at the Fortes Beach Club and Nights at the RAF Club.

Bottom right is a shot from RAF Hereford in 85 of Two TM's, they were from the Smash 'n' Grab unit RAF Abingdon, on detachment to recover a German Tornado that crashed in the Black Mountains that week.
