antar13.jpg  That's Definitely you on the Swan Neck.

Hows you,  do you not go to the Reunion at Liverpool every Oct/Nov?

I left Bulford to go onto the Display team for two and a half years then went to 1 Div HQ & Sigs Regt, Verden BFPO32 for six years then to LECONFIELD as an instructor but ended up as the Provost Sgt, baby sitting brats from Junior Leaders as well as regulars passing through on courses.  I should have gone back to Bulford from the display team as I had the choice and wish I  had done. I have been retired about 12 years now as I had a couple of Heart attacks and then a Stroke but doing alright.  Out most nights with the wife and keep young. Got a son done 15 years, in Oman at the moment. Posted at Poole with the SBS and I spend a weekend in the mess every June, on parade at 0730 a quick walk by breakfast then a briefing, and off we go split into groups some of us go out on the RIBS into the channel flat out about 57mph (scary because they are mental) then onto the ranges firing Ak47,Sa80 M4 Carbine, 9mm Pistol and this thing called a MP5 which we classify on. Two years ago I got the runners up Trophy, a nice Tankard with their Crest on and my name. You should go onto Marshal Greers page and check out his Albums, The Antar.co.uk. I will sort some pics from my album and send them to you.  Will have to send you a photo from the Sgts Mess evening due SBS but must never post it on any site as I will get Hung for obvious reasons!  Now in Mansfield. Send my regards to Jack Atherton. Take Care. John Musson

Hi Dave. As I said A troop had one called the mad dog driven by Ray Trotter. As for Pete Havers the last time I saw him was at one of the reunion's at Sheffield. At that time he was living and driving for a firm in Norfolk.

G'day Dave, how ya goin' mate, my god, there's a lot of theole' blokes on this , but it's bladdy great to hear from you mate, where about are you in this crazy world of ours, I think a lot of blokes have left UK.Unfortunately I havent been to Uk for over 30 years since me, the wife and kids came to Australia, but it was a good move, not an easy one, but a good one. Have you got any photo's Dave/ I knew two  " Robbo's " and sometime's ,it really hard to recognise someone because we've all aged a little..{ha-ha] did I say a little? Hope you and your family are well Dave, and keep in touch.................Jack
