Perhaps he was seen to have bright lights on the X-ray plates. A real eye opener which has allowed me to put the clock back 54 years. Many thanks for the pleasure that you have given me through all your hard work. Went on to RAF Melsham for Electrical Fitter-Air training. We soon learnt and obeyed, as was the best policy then haha!!
It may be that other lads who were doing their Training at the same time will remember the incident. Would love to hear from anyone else but can't remember any complete names. The 8 weeks training was intense but we all seemed to get through OK. After Duncan Sandys, Conservative Defence Minister decided in 1957 that, due to the introduction of missiles, manned flight was a thing of the past, many Fighter Squadrons were disbanded and I and many others found themselves posted to Bridgnorth as Flight Commanders overseeing the training of NS recruits.
Once you know the com port, go to the Bury Update Manager and choose the correct com port and press Next (the program is now unzipping the repository) the Next button will need pressing again in a few seconds.
The software will then send across and once completed you will get a Please note that for CC-9060 Units do not update current units that have lower than V174 software straight to the latest version as this may cause problems.
My email address is sparks65***( replace *** with @ ) and my telephone No. I was at Bridgnorth from the end of October 1955 to early January 1956. All late arrivals were lined up at the Squadron Office and being the last one to arrive back at Camp was told by the Flt. on Duty that I had been elected spokesman for all the lads who were in the same boat as myself.
I was in No.18 Flight of "B" Squadron which won the Drill Cup. I decided that the only way we were to escape 252 Action was for me to put on a Stage Performance hoping that the Flt. This in fact happened and as a result at least 60 of us were let off further inconvenience and no disciplinary action was taken against us.
One of my idea's is to try to form a small commitee to keep all informed of ongoing project's such as the new Bridgnorth memorial that we are hoping will be put in Bridgnorth town some stage in the future.
