Great thread......I have a few answers to questions mentioned earlier:

M Plt Shardlow was the Lyneham ops chap. Terrific raconteur...once told me a story about flying a Brigand towing a target with an LAC as the target operator. I can't remember the details accurately, but it was a story about someone writing something offensive on the banner which he was tasked to tow at some display or other...when he was told on the radio what was on the banner, it was only the fact that he had an LAC on board that stopped him ditching the ac!

Blacky Blackwell is no longer with us...regaled us with stories such as changing seats in the Meteor whilst airborne......

The M PIlot at Marham was Vic Burroughs, great chap and good story teller too!
