Hiya Jim, so you remember Lt Col Bill "Bullshit" Brown too. Have you seen my reply to Dave Paul about how Bill Brown arrived at Ranby? He was a proper bullshitter without a doubt. Had us parading for guard duty in best No2 dress.

I'm in touch with Ted Taylor, who was a REME Sgt at Ranby & Bulford, and I've got one of Ted's photos on my page. It's of the Officers and SNCOs at Ranby about 67 or 68. You will probably recognize a few faces!

All the best,
