Hi Bob

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I do remember the canvas canoe (with patches) and how we struggled at Devies. Went on visit to Ranby Prison this year to see the only billet huts left and our billet was still there before they demolish the last of them. Paddy Lynch, Bobby Morrison, Bill Robertson and a few oldies also were there.Where do you live now? Met Pete Bowskill who drives for Wilkinsons at Gamston. Great to hear from you.

Regards Jock

Hi Bob

Many years ago we served together in 'B' Troop at Ranby, happy days, good to hear you are well as Ranbyites are getting fewer. Farmer Dunn and Doc Halliday live near me here in the North East. Sadly my friend Mike (Mary) Hayler passed away afew years ago still have contact with Al Sibley. Drop me a line.

Hi Bob,

It was great to catch up with you again after all these years. As suggested, don't forget to give me a call when you get back in to blitey this Xmas and we can meet up for a pint or two.

Best Regards Richie.

Hi Bob, long time no see. I think the last time saw you was when I was living in Strood about 15 years ago and you were driving for DFDS. Shame I see that you are going back home before the reunion, as it would have been great to see you. Regards Brian.

Hiya Bob, nice to see another "old Ranbyite" on the site. I first met you at the TA centre park up at Barnet, one frosty Saturday morning in 1967. I was No2 to Brian Fullerton, on our way to FVRDE Chertsey, and you were on your way back to Ranby.

I remember it so well because you were having a large Vindaloo spring roll for breakfast, and when I said I had never had a taste of a "proper curry" before, you gave me a chunk...... Burnt me going in and burnt me coming out.......Still makes my eyes water just thinking about it!

It gave me a taste for curry, but I've never had one as hot since!


All the best,
