Licher Bier alert!!!
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Fax : 918 622-1443

WH Company, Georgetown, South Carolina
Phone: 843/527-6177

I'm on the phone right now.....

YOU ARE THE MAN !!!!!

Sooooo, on a similiar note, Is the 'ONE CLUB' in Lich still there? That was a real neat place.

For that matter, My favorite 'home away from the barracks' was a place in Langgons, called the 'SHAKATAK'. A small club next to the 'sportplatz', the only nightclub in town. I imagine its long gone now, Great people there.

Lost along 'memory lane'.... Cool

You're quite welcome, gentlemen,

hoist one for me and for old USAREUR times' sake, we kept the cold war cold. Wink

Don, all your old haunts are gone, I think the "Hard Rock" at Lang Göns is still alive, but that's about it.

'Hard Rock'...?

That brings to mind,....
"Uriah Heap" played a 'concert' in the Lang Göns Sports Club by the Sports Platz, as I remember, in 1988 or 89.

For some reason I didn't go, as I spent that evening at the Shakatak, improving the local economy by consuming volumous varieties of 'Alt Bier', Plum Snapps (little bottles), Kummerlings (Coffin bottles !?), Tequila (Pepe Lopez), and others I have long forgotten..... Cool

Boy, does it sound like I had a drinking problem back then.. Shocked ...?

Actually,....it was Nooooo Problem.... Mr. Green

Sheesh, now you've got me strolling down memory lane... Uriah Heep at Lang Göns, I'd completely forgotten about that- and then there was Charlie Daniels on an USO tour, where a great time was had by all and copious amounts of alcoholic beverages were consumed.

Couldn't have been that bad, the memories linger on- seems like the brew just killed the weaklings among the brain cells. Mr. Green

Good news, Jens, thanks! At Stillwater International Airport (Corgi Field) one may find such oddities as a Bristol Britannia.....

OMG,

you had to bring up Newcastle Brown Ale- that comes with its own set of memories attached, involving also copious amounts of cod & chips with lots of vinegar...

More at a later date, I've just returned from our modeling show which was a lot of fun and our motley crew was able to scare up a whopping EUR 1,000 donation for child cancer aid (the largest individual donation, he modestly adds)- I'm just a wee bit bushed and will update you gentlemen in a day or two.

Post subject: Memories of Licher and "The Rock"

The data plate was from my M60A1 RISE (Passive) S/N 9816. (They came along one day and put new data plates in all our tanks, so I kept the old one.)

The mug is something that caught my eye at a relic show a couple years ago, and I had to have it, since I was in the same battalion, 20 years later. We didn't have cool beer mugs like this when I was on "The Rock"!

(I have no idea who "Bob" was. Laughing )

PFFFTTT! What do Germans know about beer?! You want a satisfying, full-bodied quaff, you reach for Ba M' Ba. Wink



Of course, you might have to reach for more than one, because the fill volumes are designed for Eastern capacities, but once you've had 30 cases of these, you'll never go back.




But sadly, Heineken asserted their ownership rights to the branding, so the SRVN has adapted, while still keeping their "signature" look. "Tiger" and "Huda" are also available, but they don't roll off the tongue like the original....
