I was there on 3 Sqdn from 1962 to end of 1964 mostly on the line - I think I was a Cpl/Tech rigger then who had to put the stripes up the other way in the reshuffle. Went to Kuantan with them in '64 on detachment. Happy days!
Yes I'm pretty sure I remember you now - tallish, black curly hair? Photo brings back memories let me have your web address I'll have a look at the rest. I've got some myself somewhere - some on the pan at Geilers and some from Kuantan on detachment, I'll dig them out.
Cast your mind back to '63/'64, I used to play lead guitar in Al and the Kossacks - the "station group"
Cheers for now
The guy you describe was Pete Hickman who played rhythm guitar - I'm still in touch with him, he retired from the RAF as a Sqdn Ldr. I'll send you a photo of the group and some others which may interest you especially of the Geilers days but they are slides so will have to have a go at copying them.
Thanks for the website addresses - I've been on both of them for a short while and will have a good look later this week when I have a bit of spare time. They are both pretty good and I see some familiar names in the guest book.
Perhaps it might be easier if we now contact through our private e-mail addresses
I'll dig out these pictures and send them to you privately
Cheers for now
On the 24/10/1957, right out of T.T. I had the good fortune to be posted to Geilenkirchen.
All that time I spent in Holland, made a man out of me (nod, nod, wink, wink!). On at least two occasions I was poured over the fence that was the border and camp boundery, or at least that is what I was told the next day.
Worked on Canberas, NF 11's and Javelins and, if my memory serves: Swft and Hunter.
Worked int he radio servicing flight 1954 to 57. Sabre, Swifts and Hunters.
