Sum great stories there, will check out the 72sqd site. Grew up in Bessbrook as a kid and watched the helicopters everyday. Loved watching the Wessex, Puma and Scout. Does anyone know were you would get any video's or links of the Scout flying or doing any displays?

Does anyone remember Capt ******* ***** (practising for his ATPLH/IR) providing hugely valuable top cover in Lx5 whilst VMC on top !
Flying for BA now. And still a knob according to the ex-AAC mafia.

The VMC on top call was from 1994 (12th July to be precise). He made the call to Puma4 and Lynx7 asking them to call dropping and lifting as he had no visual through the clouds. Half an hour later came the Mortownhamilton newtering.

Haven't heard that one for a while, not since sharing an office with Mick Drol.

Mate, if it hadn't been for his inattentiveness, you'd never have got your name on the board in the Sqn!

Hope all is well. I thought given your previous dashing performance in front of the media that they'd have chosen you to be the suave captain on that rather hip company advert of yours.

From MTH to FKH

But surely he’d been newtered?

FKH – or what’s left of it. Taken from ZA940, 28:03:2006. Wonder where the Saracens are?

Phamousphotogrspher.....got any of these piccies then?

Back in the old days.......and before all the fencing was built, ISTR we used to land in the field and in front of us was a line of 'council' houses one of which always seemed to have an upstairs bedroom light on and a 'lady' who was in a state of various levels of undress!! Known as the 'Forkhill flasher' and regarded as a 'cum on'!! To her I would like to say 'Thank you for cheering up our detachments'!!

Are the 2 houses in the bottom left (between the instrument panel and the sliding window) new-ish? Used to have to flop old Walter over the fence that way after a right-pedal take-off when she was a bit heavy and cushion creep over the field until enough speed was on to climb away/dodge round Slieve Gullion, and I don't remember them being there, as they look like they would be right in the way.

No. None of her, but didn’t every SF base have its own urban legend glamour girl to distract the sentries?

PS
a line of 'council' houses
Dundiggin. What did you say the house number was?

Woodbourne certainly did, as one unfortunate Para found out whilst in the super sanger.Watching the young lady/slapper through the binos he got a little excited and leant forwards causing a part of his person which was exposed at the time to come into contact with the heater placed a waist level The scream could be heard over most of West Belfast

Back At Bessbrook.

Eight years ago, 12th March 2002, and 72 Squadron had less than two weeks left before departure from the Province as Faz F*****l lifts the night-line Wx10, XR525‘G’, from spot 5 to return to Aldergrove. M****n E****l and S****y T******n complete the crew. On 25th March a ten-ship Wessex formation left Aldergrove for the ‘mainland’ and the Squadron formally disbanded on the 31st.

NI Memories

Oh how I remember the numerous sites I had the "pleasure to serve at" LOL. Bessbrook, Dungannon, St Angelo, Omagh, G40 etc. Being kicked out of bed at all hours to start the pump and juice your birds up ! Maybe the wrong term of phrase there! I for one actually miss our regular tours over to the emerald Isle and working hand in glove with the aircrew. Still get to see some of the old faces now and again when I pop over to Shawbury!

Not too sure where to put this request in.... but any 230 guys around that has a copy of the TROP STORM video shot in Belize in Feb-May 2007? I was in the lead air frame and missed out on the showing and getting a copy due to a roulemont change and being out on a FRP with 25 Flt. Any info much appreciated!!

The "Lady" in Forkhill.

Known as the 'Forkhill flasher' and regarded as a 'cum on'!! To her I would like to say 'Thank you for cheering up our detachments'!!
Dundiggin, the "lady" you mention was known to us as Sadie. She would put on regular shows for the squaddies in the sangars which often involved various vegetables and other phalic items.

It was rumored it all got too much for some of the boys and the base lights would mysteriously go out whilst a sudden sprint was made from base to nearby housing estate.

I'm surprised she wasn't tarred and feathered as she had the only black son in South Armagh.

Had the camp run out of vegetables?

I never thought of that - and I wondered why the food always tasted salty!
