Further adventures in 1959.
I was stationed at Weeton, Lancs, on PWR''s for overseas. Had a baby daughter, 1st child a few months old. Suddenly was sent to Cosford on detachment. Argument that being on PWR's excluded me from any detachments,(later proved correct) was rejected and off I went.
Some clever so and so borrowed some of my civvy gear one night to go out with his mates. Gave me some sob story about lost luggage and I fell for it. Apparently he and his mates went on a local breaking and entering spree. He was wearing my jacket trousers and shoes.
However they got caught and I wasn't involved in any proceedings. Returned home several weeks later to find my notice of posting to Gan. Daughter only 9 months old. Was I jumping. But I wouldn't have missed that year. It was great.
