Hi Blackie,

I have had Paul (DOC) Jordon stay with me while he was in uk from Cyprus. We were together at Sennelager with 23/3 Sqn in 1968 to 1972. Plenty to talk about.

My daughter in law was Karen Cunningham she was with 19 Sqn . In my day the tank Transporter drivers were specialists . Do they train females now ?

She went to a reunion in Liverpool and asked if I would like to go . I said I doubt if I would know anyone now.

Can you tell me the date that she last attended a reunion.

She doesnt really want to talk about those days . Maybe the memories are not good . She said she turned a Scammel Commander Transporter over while deplyed in Bosnia. In my four years I cannot remember any Antars having an accident  

 

I would appreciate a reply

Blackie

 

Thank you for your sponsorship and support. It is really down to you that I became aware of this charity in November and became inspired to do something. I'm honoured to run for our tank transporting people in April for this cause. You are very generous and a good man who has done so much for others .. not just for charity but also the reunion each year. True leadership and worthy of your legend status.

 

I have a few more irons in the fire to raise even more. "Might" be getting an endorsement from a top police blog which has National coverage 5 million hits. The author is ex army and will hopefully generate even more donations.

 

Thank You - Mark "Vic"

Hi Blackie
Thanks for a good reunion just wonder whether its time for a change of venue

Cheers Pat.
