I built the MCS Bay at Wattashame in 76 with Gibbo and a couple of Snecs. Remember 'Squeaky' anybody ?

Re: MCS Bay personnel
I knew your Dad very well. We were on the same fitters course(FAR 21) at Cosford in 1971/72. We met again later when we worked on Phantoms at Bruggen, Wildenrath and Coningsby.
He was a lovely man and we had some great times, mostly taking the **** out of other people.
He always had a smile on his face. One of life's gentlemen.
Phil Collins, John Rowe, Kipper, Kate, .......Well there's a few names from a bygone era!
After demob in '85 I arrived in Perth, Western Australia - been here ever since.
Kev Toyne arrived here 2-3 years later - last I heard he was doing a law degree.
Pete Burdett (MCS bay Leuchars/Wildenrath) became a Pilot on VC10's - now flys with Virgin Atlantic.
Unfortunately lost touch with everyone else.
Anyone know where Findlay Cameron is? John Randall?
Very sad to hear about Don Abbott.
