Remember rocking back into TTF having been ASRA training and finding they were 45 mins overdue - we didn't need to be told the worst, it was obvious, then a quick look in the auth sheets told us who we would be raising a pint to in the Mess that night

RIP lads, never forgotten.

The news reached us at Calgary as we arrived to begin the detachment for a Tornado, Goose, Calgary, Eilson stream. As one of two AGEs and a dozen or so Teckies we all knew we had lost some mates. It was with sad hearts that we hoisted a few that night. I will certainly be taking a dram of something this evening, it seems fitting. RIP all of you.

A lot of very good friends and colleagues lost that day....... Raising a glass to each one and especially to Craig; the ALM fraternity lost a promising star that day.....
