As a Rockape I went out to Laarbruch by Britt to take part in the Nijmegen marches. I remember going up front when the aircraft was on the ground and thinking "this has got to be a better job than charging around Catterick Moors getting soaking wet and freezing", and I think I can date my decision to apply for nav training to that occasion. Never got onto Britts though, although I had several longer trips in them including in a British Eagle trooping flight from Heathrow to Paya Lebar, Singapore via Kuwait and Columbo. Just over 24 hours as I recall.
