 Hi all ! ... I have had a request from RIC CHEADLE (School House 1962-68) asking if there is anyone who can put him in touch with his best man, KEVIN FROST (Wyke Lodge), as Ric has lost touch over the years and would like Kevin to be at his 50th. Wedding Anniversary ... please e-mail me with any contact details and I will pass them on to Ric ... Thank you ... Doug Clews

 I received today an e-mail from Nigel Parkes (1976 -1979) reading as below:

Hello,

You might be interested in the attached photo of the CCF RAF section summer camp at RAF St Athan 1977. I was in the section from 1976 until about 1979.

St Athan had a collection of historic aircraft at the time. Three of us managed to get assigned to the 'museum’ (thus avoiding square bashing etc) and spent the week polishing the inside of various aircraft canopies - which of course involved sitting in the cockpit! Watched over by a kindly old hand of a sergeant who served us chicory coffee, I guess he was glad of the company as no one visited the museum. 
We acquired a sheet of self adhesive orange day-glo plastic and made Penguin stickers (copied from the chocolate bar) in honour of Flt Lt (Pengy) Fletcher - these stickers turned up everywhere.
