Dear All,

The airportability of the Muirhill A5000 was a big selling point in the 1970s.

There was actually an airborne Plant Sqn, from Aldershot and their Muir Hills had the cab 'hacked' off. I use that word because it was a rough job! I guess it was to reduce the height to fit in a Herc.

That was 9 Independent Parachute Sqn RE.


Yes! That was it, I could not remember the number. I did a lot of plant repairs for units around the South East District, inc. 36 Engr Regt, RSME and so on.

Did anyone get to any of the RE Demonstrations?

Our Plant course had a slight involvement back in 1979 at Lodge Hill.

Apologies for the quality but it was a pocket instamatic.
