Hi Ben
My names Paul Keller.
Good luck in your search, would love to find out were your dad ended up.
Have many pleasent memories of him when we were in B SQN together.
Brilliant gunner mech, could shoot the pervebials off a wasp at 1000meters and thats with a 120mm
tank gun, not a rifle ! (He wasn't bad with one of them either !!)
A lot of the guys on here will well remember him as well, always very popular.
Keep us informed of how things go.
Kells
Then it's Trooper this, an Trooper that
And Trooper how's yer soul?
But it's "Hawks are bloody 'ero's"
When the tanks began to roll!

When was the last time you had any contact with him? All I know is he was a corporal in 1986 and I was born in Lancaster military hospital! So any friends or anyone who might be in contact with him would be great!! Thanks for the reply

Ben,
I did'nt know your dad as i left before he joined but if you write a letter to John cornish at HHQ and enclose a letter to your dad JC will forward it if he has address details on file. He's helped me find a couple of old mates. Good luck.

It's a small world, I had a phone call from another old Hawk telling me to look on here. I do occasionally pop in for a nosey. Thank you for the kind words Kells I still work with guns up in Cumbria I'll have to show them your comments about my accuracy I had a bad week last week so they may disagree. I remember you Billy from Hohne I was a NIG in B Sqn when we first moved over. I'll try and keep posting but as most of you know I'm crap at keeping in touch.

Hi Bulldog
Long time no see, I'm sat like a kid at xmas waiting for my lad to get back to me I PM'd him but its sat in my outbox, don't know why. Then I spotted the email button. Fingers crossed. How are you doing? I still think back to the PO wing it was one of the best times I had.

For those that are interested the regiment was on my sons birth certificate, we are back in touch and I'm a granddad :D
Thank you Noah's Arc. I'll now keep my personal life personal but I'll try to keep posting on here.
