7 Field Squadron RE

About Me

 I joined 7 Squadron on the 16th Nov 1966, I remember that date as it was my birthday. The weather was cold, dark and miserable, however, the guys in 2Tp soon made me feel welcome.  In April 69 I posted 11Sqn in Malacca where I remained until the Army's pull out in Jan 71, when I then joined 54 Sqn in Hong Kong.  I returned to UK in September 72, on a posting to 50 Sqn with whom I remained until 75 when I joined 40 ASR, with no idea, at that time, that this would be my last as my last RE posting.  In 1978,  I transferred to REME as an Artificer serving with 2 Gren Guards   then 4 Armoured Workshop before my final tour as ASM of 2 Field Regiment Workshop. 

The saying once a sapper always a sapper is a definite truisim. 

I look back on my time as a sapper with great affection and in particular the time I spent in 7 Sqn
