As it's all a bit quiet on the Forum at the moment, I thought I'd launch a new post for asking about old friends, etc. I for one would like to know where these guys have gone to and why they're not in touch on here:
Steve O'Connell (SOC) - Comms chap
Terry Scannel - Photog and allround MC on sqn dets
Ada Asquith - Rugby playing Sootie
Spence Lewis - Sootie Chief
Hope they are all still alive.....
looking for RICHARD HURREN and MARK LOWE who were on 43 sqd at the same time as me 76/77.both were FLM'S at the time,but im sure they went on fitters courses.
Spence Lewis went to South Africa, not sure when, but I may be able to get details from Reg Hatchett,ex 43,or John Gillespie also ex 43.

Trying to catch up with a few old linnies from 56 at Wattisham 79 -84
And anybody that can remember myself... Kim

Last time I saw Mark Lowe - Bertie - Tiny is on the line at Kinloss a few years ago, I'll ask around and find where he ended up.
Hi Dave. I'm still about the Wattisham area, now caring for my wife who has become disabled in the past few years.
Looking to get in touch with Robbie Sale "Stretch" Leckie on Tremblers in the 70s/80s, and Bob Speed "Speedy" Rigger also on Tremblers. Brian Sigley, who now lives in Norway, has been trying to get in touch with them for some years.
