    Hi Hank
    My father served at Willich in 1961. Was in main stores and his name WO2 Rodbard. Iwas 17years old and started my first job there as a Civilian Clerk. I worked in Chief Clerk Douglas's office. I also ran the 1st Willich Cub Pack with Lt Cleary. If anyone remembers me, I send them my best wishes.

  8. Tam, I might be interested in coming over sooner than 2012. (I live in the states) Would love to get some info from you.

  9. Hi Hank, I was enamoured to come across this site, I served 1966-68 in 21 Sqn as a C & J, played for the football team. It was certainly some halcyon times in our youth and a lovely town, I got my first tape on the cadre there and have a stack of photos to give to your library of mainly 21 sqn lads, Cider Ridgeway,[now deceased I believe] Paul Davis, Scouse Thomas, Garry Marsh, remember 'Harry Harris ??. I am still in touch with Sean McCargo from another site and wil point him in this direction, along with a couple of others I know from around then, Pebs Mawer. et al. We were in 21 together, you were in the stores if I remember correct, Dunno if you remember myself, devilishly handsome and virile,[LOL] I'll dig out those photos , let me know where to send them to. Cheers for now,
    Tony Liddicoat.
