BEags, I was offered a "Free Transfer " to Hamble by the Towers' Commandant after 100 hrs on the JP in 1973 " I just have to pick up this 'phone".
I went Ground Branch instead as I just smelled a rat somewhere.
Oh , by the way, don't forget BoB day 15 th September is coming up, It is also the 50th anniverary of the Premiere of the film " Battle of Britain" , which we attended and which famously witnessed your initial on screen sighting of a certain lady's frillies in 1969 .
This momentous occasion of course was laid on in honour of another landmark in RAF History.

The day we were Commissioned!

Was at it as well after winning tickets at our Southend flying clubs annual knees up.
club run by crooked scrap dealer with such low calibre instructors that I decided I could do better.
Flew today..sadly never fast jets but fun nonetheless
