1984 Lionheart – Galerie Cox

© David Cox

I was a troop sergeant in C Squadron. The Royal Hussars equipped with Challenger 1s. In fact this was the first exercise where Challenger was introduced to the world. It was the largest NATO exercise since WWII and involved 134,000 troops from all NATO countries. Personally i found it a bit boring as they wanted a dramatic entrance for Challenger. Consequently we were held in reserve and spent the best part of two weeks hidden away, camouflaged in woods until almost the final battle which was a counter penetration mission. I suppose the nearest town was Walsrode and city was Hanover about 30/40 minutes away. I was based in Lumsden Barracks at Fallingbostel which was the opposite side of the ranges to Bergen Hohne.
