    Can see five there who had long careers at Hereford, rising to high ranks, e.g. Gerry Bonnar (WO1). Also see Pat Neil and Merv Bassett who i was in 24Sqn with. Merv or Pat was the RSM at RSME when our Pat was there. He ended up a LtCol, think Pat finished Capt? Many others there who also went on to be commissioned.

    Being a thick twat, I only achieved the Dizzy Heights of full screw. But I enjoyed my time as much as anyone with no regrets, and many of those were Toms when I knew them, as you say Don there are a few hooligans present, all bloody good lads who I have a lot of respect for !

    Doubt i would've been commissioned Pat, not something that appealed to me, but we'll never know. Bob, don't know if i mentioned it here, Gerry B died earlier this year.

    Re: Just a trial

    Well, by the time i left i had managed to work my way up to the rank of, Sapper. Mind you, it was touch and go at times.
    I have always set myself a very low standard, and constantly fail to achieve it.

    Yes Don, it was Dave Rutter, who told me about Gerry, funny enough Gerry was at the last Snowdonia escapade and looked as fit as you like. Just shows mate never judge by appearances !
