AOTS South Cerney

Anyone know of the whereabouts or contacts for anyone on 230 Course AOTS South Cerney in early 1967? Thought it might be nice to get in touch and see what the guys are up to these days!


Anyone from any course is more than welcome!

South Cerney Course 1960

You're not that old really. I joined on 1 Nov 1960 on a South Cerney Course to be a Nav. Can't remember what number it was.

Reckon I'm closest on 232. Bound to have known you Newt. Happy for you to p.m. me and we can exchange names from the past, plus exploits at the "Grotty Nell". Do you remember cadet George Rourke and a Flt Cmdr "Mike?" Rourke?

Who was the delightful 'gentleman?' who had me cleaning the hangar floor, with a very small mop, if I remember correctly.
And the radiator in my room with my toothbrush?
Don't think it did me any harm, might even have done some good, but my teeth have never recovered!
Cheers

Rad Nav,

November 1960 must have been my course. It could have been 152...or was that the number for Syerston?

The CO was that funny little chappie called Barnard. Do you remember how the preceding course posed as the directing staff and had us all out on the parade ground the first night for a spot of PT?

Naturally we did it to the next course a month later!

On 230 Course we had Sgt Gilday. Great bloke. Whenever something went wrong during drill practice and laughing was heard from the team he was always heard to say "Gentlemen there's something kinky in the ranks"

I can also remember that dreadful day when we had to run round the airfield carrying a bench and then get the team and the bench over the hangar roof to finish! Which sadist on the staff organised that little exercise?
