I was so proud of my Super 8 cine camera in 1971,the most up to date camera with its ability to take 4 minutes of silent film, which then had to be sent back to the UK to be processed, and this film was the result of six of them edited and spliced together. I then kept meaning ...

Re: March Past at the Cenotaph

Missed Malcolm on parade yesterday, but saw the KRH/14/20 contingent march by while I was stood in Horse Guards.
I would be honoured to march with them next year, how do I go about it?

Re: Ferret 33 BA 64 Hong Kong

Looking at my album of Princess Anne's visit to Hong Kong, I have newspaper cuttings of her driving a Mk 1 Ferret on Thursday 28th October 1971, but the number is 33BA67. I thought we only had one Mk1 in the squadron. I also have cine film of it being driven back to Sek Kong from Ha Tseun ranges, as...

When we were in Paderborn, John and I lived in the same village, Dahl, just outside Paderborn. John and his family lived on a small farm, and we spent many evenings haymaking, and drinking the farmer's home made brews. We met again when John was at what was FVRDE, at Chobham. We were in touch again ...
