Hi Pete

Now that could be a good subject, how many Hawks have private plates and what do they mean. Mine is T 33 AKB T33 being my call sign for 2 years shortly before I left and AKB my initials. That of course was under Peter Harman.
How many more of you have your own number that can be published on this site.

The Powers that be decided that when C in C became that she should have a fitting Reg hence 1420H. Each member of the Regiment was stopped 1 days pay to pay for it(No complaints from the lads may be because she was a pretty
lass). I believe Mike Palmer was the CO.
