Hi Ian,

Here are some mug shots from my trip to Port Stanley in '84...... ahh.... fun in the sand at tanker pool. Shame the piss-ups weren't as good as beer was literally "liquid gold" and you can't have a good old knees up on one small can per person unless you can bribe a SNCO to buy you a bottle of spirits.

The Uganda and Keren were dry ships, so that was four weeks of utter boredom, only broken up with gale force 13 hurricanes going through the "roaring forties".

Below: The first two were taken in N.Ireland, '92-'94, must be a good MT section if you get a car and a volunteer driver to take the boys out on the piss. In the photo, Geordie Flavell, Paddy McKinstry, Me, John Devine (duty driver) and Martin Gill. Second photo is John "Fu##nut" Thomas after our weekly, 100 mile dash around the Irish countryside on our Suzuki GSXR 1100's, how we never got pulled by the paddy cops I don't know... well I do... they can't catch you in an armoured car if your doing 170 mph

The third is of me and my elder brother Bob, at my younger brother's wedding in Devon. The "plastic" FS airloady is now a Sqn Ldr at Wycombe, in charge of sending all airloadies around the world, I bet he's made a lot of enemies in the aircrew World.

Finally, MT section RAF Benson, '91-'92, me front row, 3rd from left. I believe the MT yard is now a fancy flight sim building for the new RAF chopper ( Merlin ?)

Hi Ian,

Another photo for mugshots, I found this one at the weekend while sorting out some junk, I'm the one laying on everyone and the only one I remember was David Dundas, he is now W/O MT at Wittering. He is the one in the background with his hair parted in the middle. This photo was taken July 1975 at Swinderby. See the trousers ? Hairy Mary,s. By the way it was only Dave and I who were MTDs in that photo. Its ironic that I met Dave at the MT reunion at Wittering this year, its the first time I've seen him since training, 34 years ago and it was as if we had just walked back into the NAAFI the next day after the photo.

All the best

Hi Ian,

I would like to thank you for all the hard work you continue to put into this excellent site which brings back many happy (!) memories from my Service days.

Coincidentally, I now work with one of the Air Loaders who served at Gutersloh during the same period and we always enjoy talking about the 'good old days'.

Best wishes

Chris Lacey

I recently re-discovered this photograph of the Air Movements MT Section at RAF Gutersloh taken sometime during 1982.

From left to right:

Herr Johannes Wittop (known as 'Johnny'), Steve Magee, Pete Sielski, Dave Belton, Cpl. Wilson Rennie, Pete Binks, Chris Lacey and Neil Harley.

The 'Condec' in the background was one of two that we had along with two 'Karrier Bantam Gamecock' baggage loaders (for loading baggage into the tail hold of the VC10) and a 'Scissors' In-flight Catering Truck together with a couple of 'Noddy Tractors', one of which (19AP52) is shown with me outside the Gutersloh Air Terminal.

When the wide body 'Tristar' was introduced into RAF service we all had to attend a British Airways sponsored 'High Loader' course at Hannover Airport, this vehicle having a motorised platform that allowed us to load aluminium baggage bins without manual assistance as was normal when using the 'Condec'. The high loader, with SAC Rob Jepp at the controls, and the 'Noddy Tractor', are shown working alongside a British Airways 747 at Gutersloh during an exercise when BAOR was re-inforced from the UK.

This 747 photo has two airman in blue shirts standing next to the high loader. These are Cpls Ian Stockell and Dave Pasquell, both MTD's, who along with Cpls Alf Zammit and John Cockrem, were regularly deployed to the Air Movements MT Section from Station MT during the many exercises and deployments which took place at Gut.

A photograph of myself taken on 'Logs 8' during 1983 at a field site near Hovelhof, midway between Gutersloh and Paderborn. The MTSS AEC Militant (I think) Recovery Truck can be seen hiding in the trees on the right while one of the large fleet of AEC 4000 gallon TTF's that Gutersloh had is in the background.
