Thanks John (Kirwin) for your kind birthday wishes.
Yes I am now 71 and still going strong. I cannot believe 11 years has passed since my heart failure and surgery.
I am so thankful to be so well and feel heartfelt for those comrades who have passed before me.
At the moment Margaret and I are on walkabout (1800 miles so far) in our new motorhome to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary (9/9). Yesterday we toured the tank museum at Bovington and on Sunday we are going to the AAC museum at Middle Wallop.
Keep well all,

Bill Bentley

Happy birthday Ian.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying your motorhome. We are considering buying one, can you give us any tips ?

My belated Birthday Greetings, sorry but my computer is getting confused or it might be me. I never realized you were only 6 years younger than me. I thought there was at least 10 years, did you see Mick Burgess down there he lives close by? At present watching CNN coverage of Irma just as hit Key Largo. Bad news/
A word is enough for a wise man
