:D Sue and I will be there as usual. We normally call in on the Friday night and listen to Phil Midgley and Bill Butcher telling their old stories. Always good for a laugh.
Our son Phil will also be there with his new wife. He has been going for about 10 years now. Are there any more of our kids who used to be in Hohne or Munster schools who may attend. They could have their own mini reunion at the same time.
See you there.
Stef. :lol:

Hiya Stef , who could or would want to miss Billy and Phils ' lamp swinging 'stories ?, I dont think I've heard the same one twice, well not sober I have'nt. I must admit we have'nt been to the northern reunion for a few years now but we are really looking forward to it this year, I dont know how many of the Regt still attend but I'm sure we will be able to make it seem as if we out number everyone else . Looking forward to catching up with everyone , Take care . atb Billy :) :)
