More to that. After the Falklands war was over we stationed the place for many more years after. In fact, I believe therw is STILL a Regiment strength force there.
The "christmas" after, we had the Black watch and the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders play this on the pipes. One of the Officers of the Watch was an ex Choir master and sang it.
The BW sang the main back ground. And the Argyles countered in canon. (Where one starts a verse after the others) with the pipes playing the tune, and the drum corps giving it lally. (
The last part was sung REALLY deep and loud. That echoed off the mountains around at Goose bay.
Ever THOUGHT that you would see a Military police Sergeant with tears in his eyes?
I have them now. THEN I could hardly show my face.
Happy memories....???? No not really. But close to the heart, YES!!!!
I will NEVER forget it.
For those that were no longer there;
Mick Mc Mahoan
Roy Williams (Ginger pig)
And many more I do not know the names of.
