Bank crisis here, bank crisis there, who cares ? Hardly anybody that I know has been adversely affected by the bank crisis, because … we simply do not have large amounts of savings. Even so, those greedy (w)bankers and their thieving buddies have created a situation that will, sooner rather than lat...

Dear all, How many of you proud hawks would like to own a printed copy of the Regimental Flag of the 14/20th KH ?

Re: 20th Hussars Officers shoulder belt?

Hi Rick and family, can't help with the OSB. Also can't think that a bit of water would bother you too much, I recall you being a very capable canoer ! If you need a good doctor in Brisbane I can recommend a former Aus. SF Col. friend of mine ... send me a pm. Take care and 'chin up' 'down under'. BB

Re: Porton Down testing in 1971 or 72.

Im sure Parky Taylor was involved in the tests, if you can locate him maybe also Jake Flemming. Also some of the Para Sqn RAC lads while based at Old Sarum. Try their OCA to make contact.

Re: George Kirk

George was a good friend of mine and a great insperation, encouraging me to accept my posting to the Para Sqn RAC in which he had previously served. I last saw George in the mid 80's, at a Northern Reunion I think it was. Should you manage to track him down I too would be happy to make contact again...
