On the Recourse Sqn at DIOT years ago we had a (genuine) end-of-course prize called the `Sir Richard Head Memorial Prize` given, ostensibly, for the 'most valuable contribution to the course`; in keeping with the cruelty of Service humour however this prize was actually awarded to the member of the course who had proved to be the most intellectually challenged ; to my knowledge, none of the winners of the 'Dick Head' trophy ever fully realized just what a 'valuable contribution' they had really made; if they did they certainly weren't saying!!

Anyone remember the chap from 105 and 108 BFT courses at Cranwell - used to wear the name "Mr Meanor"?

Goodbye, also, to Betty Swallox

Some years ago back at Leuchars there was a Nav known both as "Wedge", the simplest tool known to mankind, and also "Thrombo", a floating clot.
