John Anderson runs a website for 30 Sqn with lots of photos, messages and all the interesting stuff on it, I'd recommend you go and visit.  http://sapper696.50megs.com/index.html

There is also another 30 Sqn site run by Roger Lakeman, which may be for members from the same time period or a different time period, you can find it at www.30fieldsquadron.org.uk

For the older cadre - this message was received March 2012 - My name is John Gardiner I run a small website dedicated to 30 Squadron 1960 to 1970 especially for those who served in Aden 1966/1977. The web address is www.aden30squadronre.5u.com.  Why not give it a click if it applies to you ?

33 Squadron

33 Field until 1959, then independent until 1967, then 33 Field until 1974, then 33 independent until 1992, then 33 field until 2007. Total 26 years independent, 31 years as Field. For reasons like this, I have avoided ALL names such as Amph, Cdo, Indep, Hugh, Pugh and Barney McGrue

38 Squadron

This is the main page for the squadron or unit.  At various times, this has been 38 Field Squadron and 38 HQ and SP squadron (a new nomination for squadrons since the 1990s, they didn't exist before that).  Obviously that's why all squadrons are just given a number on the title, rather than a full name.

 REgards, Gordon

Steve (Pete) Stevenson has set up a community page for 38 Sqn which will have all sorts of photos, memories and stories on it as it grows.  Why not pay it a visit once you've recorded your service details on here?  The link is http://38berlin.moonfruit.com/

There's also a Facebook group here http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=14428541113

The 5th Field Company was formed by Royal Warrant at Plymouth in 1787.
The Company saw action in Spain, France and the Netherlands
during the Napoleonic Wars, and spent several years
in Canada and Bermuda during the 19th Century.
During the Zulu War of 1879,
Lt John Chard VC of 5 Field Company commanded
the successful defence of Rorke’s Drift.
The Company served in the Boer War, and suffered heavy casualties
on the Western Front during the First World War.
During the Second World War, the company served in France in 1939 – 40,
and in Burma from 1942 – 44.
After the War, the Company moved to Germany and
renamed 5 Field Squadron in 1948,
moving to Iserlohn for the first time in 1958.
The Squadron completed 4 tours in Northern Ireland from 1971 – 78,
and spent 12 years affiliated to 6 Airmobile (later Armoured) Brigade.

AMF(L)

The AMF-L was intended as a multinational force that could be quickly despatched to any part of ACE's command area - from North Norway, to Germany, to eastern Turkey - to demonstrate the solidarity of the alliance and its ability to resist all forms of aggression against any member state. During the Cold War the AMF-L did frequent exercises in North Norway (Exercises Adventure Express, Arctic Express & Ardent Ground, among others) and in other areas, but was first deployed operationally in 1991 during the Gulf War, when part of its air component was despatched to watch the Turkish borders, in the face of a potential threat to a member's territory. The land component of the force, consisting of a brigade-sized formation of about 5,000 personnel, was composed of units from 14 NATO states.

Prior to the formation of a dedicated Support Troop in 1971, this role was carried out by  a troop, 3 Field Squadron.  who supplied support to the Coldstream Guards between 1966 -1971 with a break in 1967 when the Squadron was deployed on  OP Libretto at RAF El-Adem near Tobruq.

On Return  From this tour 3 Troop were allocated the task of providing the support for the British contingent.  3  Troop carried out training in North Norway, Denmark and Germany as part of this task.

In 1971  a dedicated unit was formed at Longmoor and they were eventually posted to 6 Fd Spt Sqn, 22 Engr Regt at Perham Down.  Where they remained until disbanded on 31st March 1995.

During this time they were deployed mainly in traing roles in as diverse places as North Norway to the area of North Turkey near to the Iranian Border.

We all have many memories of our time in the unit mine stretch from the days of 3 Troop and back again as AMF(L). 

No Doubt others will be wanting to add bits to this.
