We went out with a couple of young ladies (Irish Rangers daughters )for several months. I also went to NI 1971 & also in 1973.

    7. Hi Mark,

      I was also at Paderborn in 1969 and then helped squadron move to Iserlohn. I remember Pete Salisbury. He was my troop L/C then corporal. I remember Derek Vaughan as well with the long sideburns. And John Kako and Ging Burgess. I know that Colin Howell who also played soccer in same team as Derek Vaughan,is in Canada now as a welder. Married with 2 children. I still have the photo of the soccer team who played against the prison guards at the maze in 1971. Derek Vaughan was in it, and Colin Howell, Titch Lietch and many others. I have the names on the photo. Takes me some time to remember all the names of the guys I served with, but good to see some of them on here. Tommy Muir is another from Iselohn. I remember Black Jack and the song we made up about him.
      Those were good times and looking back I wish I had kept in contact with all of you guys, but new life in civvy street trying to make ends meet after I left 5 field, my attention was elsewhere. Andy blue nose McKay,and L/C Billy Fitzpatrick. Takes me back.

      Take care all of you.
