Bit more info for ya steve

Post  legscott86 on Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:15 am

We served together in 2REP after he joined us from the Brits in 87, served up until 90 then I went to Tahiti to gaurd French interests regarding thier 'bomb' (frog baktards), Anyway Steve' (if you do ever read this mate) bit of bad news, After I left the Legion I applied for the Paras but being into my 26 burfday at the time I was told by the recruiter at the time that I was over the hill at 26, after I ran out of swear words to call him and left the office I was heartbroken, my dream of earning one of the most Coveted Berets of the British Army snatched away by a fat arsed Plonker in LALALAND(MOD Whitehall) that said at 26 yer over the hill, I was in my prime with many more prime years to give the services.
A week later I was into my 7634th pint, one of me mates asked what I was up to, so I broke my heart to him and telt him at 26 I was over the hill, (according to some fat arse in whitehall) but he said, "NAY LAD, DON'T DESPAIR, why not join the Navy", I said "F**K O** I'M NOT GAY" but he said "and neither are the Marines, but they come under the Navy, and thier age limit(at the time) is 30" so that's what I did Steve, 9 1/2 yrs, 40 & 45 CDO mate, served alongside one of the Para in W-B'Fast 93-4 sometimes patrolling from RUC Woodburn, and during one of these patrols bumped into a geordie from 1ere coy 2 REP, can't 'member his name.
Anyway Steve, if yer ever on here and you read this over a weekend just ring 999 and you'll find somebody who can get in touch wi us, or come up to arbers and ask about, you'll find me bud.
Per Mare, Per Terram,
From one of the Best, to one of the Best. Thank you Lads for Allowing me on This Forum. Respect.

Message for Scotty from Steve Straughan

Post  stevestraughan on Sat Dec 19, 2009 11:28 pm

Scotty,
just discovered your post in the last couple of days. Mate, thanks for the quick sitrep I've often wondered what you got up to. If you get this message: thanks for the time and effort to try and track me down, I had now idea what me old 'macclesfield mucker' would be up to although I could have a few good guesses! Anyway, I am heading over to the UK in 2010, around September/October time. On part of my travels I am heading up to the Orkneys via Inverness, and then slowly coming down through Scotland via the "Whiskey Way" (could be f---ing catastrophic that!). It should be a short detour to Arbroath if we can arrange an RV, and yes I will bring the case of kro or two, and some duty frees as well. Can you please email me direct on stephen.straughan@defence.gov.au ,as you can see I am still serving, and posted to Darwin in the Northern Territory. There may be a delay of a few weeks to any email reply, depending on work commitments.

Havent forgotten when we were in Chad together, and the time I fell asleep under a beautiful, cloudless and starry African night, only to wake up when it started 'raining'. Then I discovered that it was you, in a drunken state, p---ing on my head!!! Still, it was over 20 odd years ago, and I've almost gotten over it, so if we catch up we'll let bygones be bygones. Life's too short not to be having a few ales with good mates, so please drop me an email and we'll arrange a meeting.

Hope you get this, all the best mate, delighted that you're trying to get in touch after all these years. Believe me when I say you were a great mate. But please, take that f---ing photo of us together down, I look f--ing stupid, and this is a Parachute Regiment site, you TWAT.

Steve

WORSE FOTS

Post  legscott86 on Sun Dec 20, 2009 4:08 am

I'll go through my fots and try and find some worse ones of you to add to that one already. It wasnt your fault you stood like a mincer, all that previous training you had before joining the Legion tainted your gait. Ive sent you an e-mail with a wee note and my email addy's. Give me a warning order for when you come up to Arbroath so as I can get a good reception comitee of Bootnecks waiting for your arrival, we'll have a seamans kitbag waiting for you with two holes cut out, one for your head and one for you arm, then we'll carry you round the pubs and feed you beer, the only thing is you'll have to do the toilet in your bag you'll be locked in, im sure you'll be use to being covered in your own piss and shit, then after we've had our reunion we'll dump you on the a90, Im sure some silly phucker will feel sorry for you and take you on your way somewhere. Can't wait mate. Be Lucky.

I'll email you tomorrow

Post  stevestraughan on Sun Dec 20, 2009 4:21 am

Mate,

Im working again tomorrow (and over bloody xmass again) I will email you from work. Great to have 'comms' with you again after all these years. Bloody hot and sweaty here in Darwin (its the wet season) and I hope you're freezing your nuts off in Scotland,

Laters,

Steve
