I even fell off Mount St Hilarion in the early 60's and have pictures of the climb. Spent eight weeks in Dhekelia BMH, cracked three vertebrae.

G'Day Dave, I spent some time in 101 Pro Coy (late 61_62) I was in Dusseldorf and then posted down to the Advanced base at Grobbendonk. I wasn't there long as I was posted back to the depot at Woking. I got smashed a few times on that TRAPPIST beer, potent stuff that.
I got married 1964, we had 2 sons ( I now have 3 Grandsons) and migrated to Adelaide South Australia 1969. where we have been ever since. I ended up as National Marketing Manager for a South Australian Tap maker and did very well. I have travelled extensivley throughout Australia and other parts of the world. I am now retired. We have a caravan and I play Golf. In fact we are going on a golfing trip this coming weekend. We will be away for only a week this time. We are going to a place called Mildura, which is in North West Victoria, some 480 km's away. Administrator Stewart and I trained together in R7 squad. he lives in a small New South wales town about 1400 km's from me. I hav'nt realy spoke to him yet (I;m holding out that he will talk to me sooner or later) Well Dave it's time to go. I look forward to talking to you (or indeed anyone) again soon.

Cheers for Now Ron LILL R7

Hi Steve.

Yes I know it well. I lived in Croydon until the end of 2006 when I moved down to Newhaven so I could see the sea.

I went to Whitgift Middle School which used tgo be where the Whitgift Centre now stands.

Although originally from Netherton in Liverpool, when I left RMP I met my other half who is Cumbrian born and bred. I now live in Maryport, a small coastal fishing town, surprisingly the area of the town I live in is called Netherton!! I now work for the Highways Agency as a Traffic Officer patrolling the M6 through Cumbria - glorious landscape and I get paid for it!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I'm in Northwest Leicestershire. A town called Coalville. The name used to say it all. A very large coal mining area. Sadly all the coal mines have long since gone and the town still has many redundant miners.

Hi Paul.
I used to pass through Coalville morning and evening on my way from Burton to Leicester. Pleasant little place, but reading the above message from Fred, I think it is time you thought of moving !!
