Jags were deployed to Gib to "guard" it in the early '80s, after the Spanish got a bit uppity after the Falklands.

I recall a Jag pilot and myself (in civvies) being accosted by a peace protester harridan in the Square during a demo one Saturday.

"What are you going to do when the bomb drops ?!"
He replied
"Retrim & fly home....I'm going to be the one dropping it"

(Jag pilots were usually on attachment to Gib from Bruggen, where they mounted Nuclear QRA)
