Hi Nigel, just seen your new website for the regiment, i served in the Worcesters and WFR from 1958 - 1983,
boy and man, never regretted any of it would do it all again.
I have been thinking back to the summer of 1980, when as a young,fresh - faced 16 year old,I joined the REME as an Army Apprentice ,part of the intake known as 80B2. We were the latecomers to that intake as the other squads had arrived some weeks before us. I was in 3 squad and our instructor was one Sgt Perry WFR. He had been in for over 20 years and was an old hand , as he knew every dodge and trick that young lads would get up to!
He knocked us into shape in 6 weeks and was firm but always fair.
Under his instruction, we developed into a good team and we won the `Victor Ludorum ` trophy for best squad on that intake. The trophy was a deactivated (I think!) shell from a 25 pounder gun....and was presented to Sgt Perry on our parent`s day parade.
RSM Yorke (Coldstream Guards) was the second smartest soldier that day, Sgt Perry was the smartest, the nails on the bottom of his parade boots were even shining as he marched smartly up to accept the trophy. I was in the front rank near the presentation, and the sound of his boots, his glowing pride and being part of the winning squad who started out some weeks behind the others has never left my memory.
Could it be that Sgt Perry WFR from my time at Arborfield is none other than Colin Perry WFR 1958 - 1983 ?
If so, I wish him all the very best and thank him for the great instruction he gave to us `JEEPS` in 80B2 .
