A copy of Bryan Hoare’s AATS report September 1966 – January 1967. Bryan modestly comments:
‘It would appear that I was doing quite well, then what do you expect from an ex Secondary educated lad and an ATC Cadet Sgt. My school masters/mistress’s always said I could do better’.
Eric Hills 307th
I am formally SO595465 Admin Apprentice Eric Hills 307 entry RAF Hereford. I have mostly fond and a few “not” so fond memories of my time at Hereford. My be able to find some photos , but am moving house at present on retirement. I served at RAF Hereford Sept 1966 – August 1967 and was posted to RAF Thorney Island on passing out, somewhat disappointed as I lived in Gosport before enlistment. In 1969 I remustered to Airloadmaster and served on 10 Squadron until leaving the regular RAF in December 1976.
It was however, not my last aircrew experience. I flew with the Hampshire Police Air Support Unit 1978 – 1992 partime and fulltime.I was commissioned into the RAFVR(T) in 1977 finally hanging up the uniform in 2006 retiring from the Air Cadets as a Squadron Leader RAFVR(T).(Though I am still serving with the ATC as a civilian instructor.) I would be pleased to contribute further to this association if I can and can be contacted on this email address initially With Regards Eric Hills.
