Ian
the best thing you can do is to book for the reunion. It is not like Sqn Smokers. Most of the children have grown up.
tobe honest I think you and Margaret would enjoy it also you would be surprised how many friends you will meet
You could even ask Dinger to meet you there.

I look in quite frequently, but have yet to find anyone who knows me! I served with LAD A Sqdn 1957 to December 1961 at Detmold and Hohne.

I'm also on Facebook, but my birthday was not acknowledge, although I was remembered on this Forum (Sept 5th);

Is a Facebook Greeting for Hussars only?

Regards

Peter

I pop on every day, whenever the bloody PC is working. Took the last one back to the shop yesterday and demanded another as the one I had was a real lemon. Must be a bad model cause they gave me one straightaway.

Here are the stats for the last 7 days. Many websites would love numbers like these !
There always has been a large 'silent' majority but it's up to you guys to keep things ticking over and providing sufficient interest to keep them interested.

No doubt that Facebook is a great draw; It's easy to use and is in a highly developed format.
