hello


Hi there mick


Hope this finds you well, see you went to Larkhill for the firepower display, saw some photo's from the day as you say pretty impressive. I took part in one some 40 years ago I think the latest piece of equipment then was the abbott spg, which I think was still undergoing trials at the time, and the 105 pack howitzer. I remember Grafenwehr, especially the journey to and from, and getting choked with dust from crossing the ranges to get to the camp. The burning question one has to ask is did the CO flog his beret and if so how much did he get.


The only other thing I can remember about the place was all those guys running around in squads chanting, and of course the fact that Elvis had been there a fews years earlier. Don't remember playing cricket, but do remember the time on the 4th of July we had to play 15 Msl Det at softball on the football pitch at Paderborn Have you been to the 24 site lately there are a lot of photo's mainly 76 or 51 but do seem to be able to recognise a few of them.
