    Albemarle Barracks, Ouston, one weekend in May, 1994. Brought a Mk9 Lynx up from Dishforth to do some training with Newcastle-based 201 Field Hospital, TA. The hospital was set up inside the remaining hangar.

    Lots of beds, lots of nurses..................

    They probably copied the 'pongo' spelling
