"Hello I'm Mike and I'm an AFV addict."

 

Back in the 1970s/80s I served in the Territorial Army on Ferret, Saladin and Saracen in a Yeomanry armoured reconnaissance regiment. We were regularly absed by our REME colleagues as "DonkeyWallopers".

 

I was also trained at Lulworth and Bovington on the FV721 Fox armoured car. My trained was as a B1 driver/mechanic, radio operator and gunnery instructor (30mm RARDEN cannon and 7.62mm GPMG).

Welcome Mike,

 

we too are addicts, some of us choose to admit it also.

 

Did you have a camera with you in those days?

 

Maybe some pictures to share with us?

Yes I did take some photos. The quality is poor.

 

I have a folder on DropBox of pictures containing Fox armoured cars. If you are interested I will happily share the link with your e-mail address.

 

Cheers

 

Mike

I manage a Fox and would welcome looking at them myself, but any chance that you can post them to the forum so everyone can see?
