I arrived at Ranby 9 January 1963 straight from jnr ldrs. I was in A troop. I did a couple of drags as Tom Corks No2 on a tenny my first Diamond T drag was to Rhu Scotland to do the beach landing trials on the brand new LSL Sir Lancelot. Lofty Luke (B troop was there with a Mk 2 and Scammel with a Conqueror and there were 4 A troop Diamond T' s with Cents. I was Larry Grahams no2. Jock Moyes. Jock Spiers and I think Archie Turnbull were the other No 1s, I think Jack Donner was there as well. Got a Photo of us all in a Glasgow pub some where I'll post it on the site when I can dig it out. Must rest now, it's my age you understand.
