  1. Hi, just been looking at an old thread with a painted plaque you made; wonderful stuff!. My Dad was a glider pilot ;)

    Are you serving AAC?.

      Apache country there, training and HQ. Who knows why one place is chosen over the other, lots of scrambled egg deciding one way or the other over personal wants and needs. Keeps the AAC wildcats, merlins etc alongside the Navy, cabbage heads and Junglies squadrons I suppose.

      11 years of research on your part has to be a lot of info and insight. I expect you have a tie up with the Chalk historical group? Mike Peters and the Eagle? I did hear that he was going to get a picture of that plaque into his magazine but I don't know if he ever did. I must ask.

      Wotcha Andy, I work with AAC these days, although 22 days to go and counting - hooray. The plaque was done for a retiring Major of the AAC. All round cool dudes those Glider Pilots, once they did their stuff they were also trained to join in with the fighting until lifted back to fly in another wave....

  7. I've been working on a Naval/Army base of late and was surprised to hear "All .... unit attend for Splicing the Mainbrace!" - Blimey I thought they'd stopped that years ago!

      My doctor tells me I should start slowing it down - but there are more old drunks than there are old doctors so let's all have another round. (Willie Nelson) Good man.
