Good evening fellow members of ATS. I have been a regular visitor to ATS for 18 months, and registered an account in March of this year. But i thought it was time to stop lurking in the shadows and finally contribute (where possible).

As stated in the thread title i'm from the UK (Portsmouth). I'm a former British Army (Royal Corps Of Signals) Lance Corporal, who served in Iraq during the Allied invasion in 2003.

My specialist trade was the interception of enemy Non-Communication Systems (Radar). My role in Iraq was to locate Iraqi air defenses (not that they had many left after the first Gulf War) which mainly consisted of ZSU 23/4's.

Anyway thats enough waffling on.

Greetings from Berkshire!

Glad to see more of Her Maj's subjects on board

I'm in Comms myself, but more of the boring, commercial, optical side of things. That said, it pays better than the Army!
