    signing in

    Just introducing myself to one and all. My name is Terry Robinson (Robbo) and I was a Pay Corp waller. So, yes I probably paid your claims, but not expences if I could help it!!

    I hope to keep bullshit to a minimum, listen intently, contribute with humility and enjoy being a part of a group of people I admire.

    I hope to attend the Fan Dance, in May, to fully introduce my self.

    Cheers

    Kit, that would be fantastic. Radio ops got the go to. And we went to! I was on the start line with B Company to begin with, first hour or so. Sent over to RSM with 500 link for the gun group. Brought off a wounded Para. Never found out his name. Helped to bring off doc Findlay, to begin with. The pictures would be great mate. I don't have any record of my time with your guys. After the church parade, got sent back to the gunners, Jock Love's mob, and became a pay clerk again

    Kit, the guy back right, looks a hell of a lot like me. have asked the wife and she agrees. But, I won't nail that as a confirm, the picture is too grainy. The guy in front looks like one of the cooks, poor bastard had a hell of a night, carrying the stretcher, had to revive him from exposure at one point. I'm sure one of them was a guy called wire-bender, he was reme and was on the GPMG at one point. The reason I say it may be me is that I was given a Maroon lid by one of the guys, before we walked down off the ridge and passed Moody Brook. One of the radio ops confirmed the fighting was at an end, and suddenly there were Maroon lids flying around quicker than the tracer all night. There was a senior rank with us at that moment, if I remember. Also took a couple of prisoners along the way, hiding out in the holes in the rocks, missed during the main fighting. Passed them on, before grouping up. If any of this rings a bell then there is a good chance it may be me at the back. One of the cooks, left soon after getting back to Aldershot and joined the Israeli Army. These are jumbled memories kit, so some may be a little foggy. But, if that photo was taken before coming off the ridge line and before we walked down and passed Moody Brook, chances are it may be me??????????

    Yes Robbo, the pic was taken by me on my trusty 110(hence crap image). Just before tab into Stanley. Unfortunately the original is kept at The Doncater Aeroventure Museum as part of a display, along with all my other 82 pics. Really look forward to a chin wag and beer in May- My memory isn't what it was, but a lot of what you posted I concur..........It would be good if back right is you.......first to be ticked off maybe

    Kit, hopefully some of my memories ring a bell? But, yes I am looking forward to meeting up. Who knows, after a chat, it may well turn out to be me and you at yhe same location, at the same time! As for naming anyone elae, no chance I'm afraid. I got brought in from San Carlos, straight after Goose Green, I'd been on the Norland taking pot shots at some very fast moving aircraft! Anyway, I'll save all the questions and memories for when we meet. Thanks for the warm welcome

    cheers Kit. Wife has reminded me that one of the cooks was a guy called Smudge Smith. Only reason we know that is because he found out my name and unit (4 Fd Gunners, North Camp) and knocked on the door, out of the blue and came in to thank me for saving his life that night. Wife was surprised, as I hadn't mentioned anything about my time with 2 Para. Wife gave birth to a daughter, the night i got back from down South. So, priorities immediately changed and I didn't want to worry her!!!

    Hey up. A word of warning, there are some very strange people on this site. No names obviously, but there's one or two, where the lift isn't going all the way up to the top floor, so to speak. They are fairly harmless though as long as they remember their medication.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.
