Stewart,The reunion at Stoke was started about 5 years ago by Maurice Hope ex Reme who serve in 123 coy rasc. The reunion was aimed at those who served in 123coy rasc and 23 tktptr sqn RCT.It normally takes place round March each year.Its not well attended ,but in saying that about 40 to 50 attend with wives each year.One of the first i attended i had the pleasure of being with Taff Bruton.John Luker ,Pete Ferguson,Reg Bridle.Frank Powell to name but a few.Obviously there wwere some who i didnt know ,but,it was a good weekend .I will look out a photo of those mentioned above and will e mail it to you.Its not in competion with Liverpool solely because that is a Regimental reunion ,Stoke,s attendance is much less but just as enjoyable. I think Moe Hope is a member of this site so if you want more info make contact he will be able to tell you more especially those on the mailing list .This years reunion is 25 26 March i think only about 40 are attending ,but it gives me and the wife a relaxing break i go up on the Friday and stay until the monday..you take care

Nice to hear you have been wed for so long. we have been together nearly 37 years now! We have 3 sons and 6 g/kids! If you have a look around the site you should find many a name you will know, Gamble name rings a bell, it depends on which Jacko you want, there are a couple of them here, if it is the one that went about with Clive How the yes I am in touch with him ( on and off), also with Clive, Ray Forgie, Baz Blakeman and a few others, this site is great, it is amazing how close we all where in them days, even if it was in a drunken haze!!
Hi Stuart, Happy New Year to you, Ruth and the Family. Did you honestly expect to see Blonk on here, c'mon mate he is too far up the ladder to notice us down at the bottom. Hope all is well with you and i hope you make it to the reuniion this year. All the best..
