Territorial Army squadron home from Afghanistan

A six month tour of Afghanistan has ended for two leading lights in Windsor's Territorial Army squadron.

Non-commissioned officers Corporal Gary McVeigh, 32, and Lance Corporal Dave Payne, 31, both belong to 94 (Berkshire Yeomanry) Signal Squadron based in Bolton Road, Windsor.

Gary, who was on his second tour of Afghanistan, was working in communications in Camp Bastion, alongside an Intelligence Task Force providing vital information to front line infantry soldiers. 

Now he is back at his civilian job as a management consultant he said: “After coming home the stresses are different, making decisions seem trivial.

"One of the most silly things I find annoying is trying to decide what to eat from a menu.” 

Lance Corporal Dave Payne was working at Souter Camp in Kabul in the Quartermasters Department, helping to run the main supply depot.

Six new recruits have recently signed up to join the 94 (Berkshire Yeomanry) Signal Squadron.

The squadron is holding a recruiting evening on Tuesday at its Bolton Road headquarters from 7.30pm.
