I was in Air Radar and also Senior Trumpet Major in the ace band. Went on to Gaydon and Valley - left service after 10 years - went into Computer Industry (Digital). Computer Engineer - Engineering Manager - Salesman - Sales Manager. Made redundant 1992 but had set up an Employment Agency which brings me in a bit still. I only show up for work now and again - play plenty of bad golf. Have had a great time except the excesses that started in Cosford continued throughout my life and are now beginning to catch up with me. Have to count my units now.
