Maj Andy Noble and Brigadier Dobie (Retd) 21/04/2004 at 30 Sqn reformation parade.
30 "DIRTY" FIELD SQUADRON
I joined 30 Sqn in early January 1976.The Squadron was part of 32 Engineer Regiment based at Hohne N.Germany.
The Squadron was just starting there OP Banner Training with 7 Field Squadron and 73 Field Squadron (Attatched from Hamlen).Although 26 Armoured Squadron were part of the regiment they were not sent on this tour.On arrival I was told by SSM Baylis that i would not be going on this tour,to be honest i was not that bothered as i had just spent 18 of the last 24 months in Ulster.Other members of 33 who were posted with me were not so lucky including Norman "Ginge" Campbell who recieved GOC commendation on this tour.
Our OC was Major Dobbie who was very religeous on leaving the Squadron we were all paraded in the cinema and presented a with a bible.I often wonder how many bibles he gave away during his career.We were all to meet up with him again in Iserlohn when he returned as our CO of 3 Amde Div Engs.
In 1977 it was announced that 32 Engineer Regiment was to be disbannded.30 Sqn were to move Iserlohn,7 Sqn to Nienburg and 26 Armd to Munsterlager.In early 1978 the Squadron joined 3 Armourd Divison Engineers at Iserlohn.I understand the Squadron was Disbanded in the 90's,but from information recieved the Squadron is now reformed as part of 26 Engineer Regiment at Luggeshall.
