Many, many years ago, I used to know the guys at the in the Tech Workshops at the DNBCC instructor's place at Winterborne Gunner. I frequently used to 'phone and blag kit off them for our exercises and had a brilliant relationship with Ian and Mike(?). I also got to know John Nicholson at the Thetford Battle Run by Wretham 'B' battle camp in Norfolk. (I think) [or was it Lincoln/Suffolk?]
It was just after GWI that I visited Winterborne Gunner to blag some NAIADs and CAMs for my NBC ex that I was running on SPTA, down by the compound at the 'back gate' of Westdown Camp and up at Westdown Woods, along the 'chemical Lane' that Frank Dyass set up years ago. (This was used for NBC Recce and NBC Survey practices)
After blagging the kit and refils, we went out for a smoke. Almost directly opposite the Tech Workshop was a couple of vehicle bays and, in the left hand bay as we looked at them, was what I laughingly refered to as a 'Luchs'.
Ian assured me it was a 'free' Fuchs NBC Recce vehicle donated by the Bundeswher - in the hope that the 'Army' would equipe a Regiment with them. It was at 'Gunner for evaluation and at the time, I felt very privaleged to be given the guided tour by Ian. I must say that I was very impressed by the tech side of life in the vehicle, the 'on road' sensing eqpt, the soil and air samplers and the built in laboratory.
I'm glad I had the opportunity to see over the veh and I know the guys who formed the NBC Recce Regt at Honiton near Westen Super Mud just love 'em!
