Hi Frank thanks for your reply its a shame youve had no contact with any of your old mates,but as you say you are 76 and going well i hope,i am 68 and only found out about this site a couple of mths ago so still hope for us yet.

Hiya Fred, Brian "dad" Ellis, if it's the same person, went to live in Australia and passed away 3 or 4 years ago.
I only knew him for a short while when he came back to 19 at Bulford in 1972, I thought he was a great bloke.
Have a look at Bob Saunders, or Derek "Lofty" Dyde's photos on this site, and Brian is on some of them.

Hello Leigh

I was  at Ranby in the very early sixties, was medically discharged in (I think) 1963. My mate was Roy Jones who I kept in touch with but lost contact as often happens. The last contact we had I think he was living in Retford or nearby.

I would be interested if you had any details.

Best Wishes

Hi Mike & Henry, I have checked the central database and they are not on there so I have asked on the Facebook page as I know we have some members from this time, I will let you know if anything comes back... Meanwhile 

Can you do me a favour and fill in this form and I can get the Tank Transporter database up to date plus set you up with the new "Tank Transporters" app (TTapp) for Android and iOS phones/devices completely FREE..

This will enable you to keep in touch with the guys you work/worked with and update or edit your own information on the app itself..
