It would be appreciated if those making requests would get in touch with the site administrator at administrator@rafadappassn.org if attempts to find a friend are successful.

2021-12-14 Fred Harrington 30th. frederick9495@gmail.com Michael Wilson 30th. Mike and I made contact some years ago when we both attended an annual Apprentice reunion. We regularily exchanged annual X-Mas and New Year greetings but for the last couple of years I have not been able to respond because I have lost all of his comms. details from my computer. There are very few 30th.still around and I would much like to make contact again with Mike and his wife Jenny. Mike and I were Suppliers and became close friends during our Hereford stay in1957/58. He became our entry Sergeant Apprentice, I remained a simple apprentice but we both passed out as Junior Tech.'s at the end. I was posted to RAF Bassingbourn, Mike to RAF Duxford, just a short distance away. Mile cycled over to Bassingbourn on one ocassion just to see how I was getting along. I am not sure if Mike remained a member of our Association but I would really appreciate your help.

2022-06-03 Michael Owen 28 mjandteowen@ntlworld.com Bryan Clark 27 I just wish to thank Bryan for his contribution regarding Peter Corfield in the latest newsletter. I knew Peter on and off over the years and was most saddened to hear of his death from an undisclosed illness.
2022-06-08 Brian Spurway Sqn Ldr RAF(Rtd) N/A bspur81@gmail.com Mike Hole N/A In July 1960, as a Cpl airframe fitter, I was posted to join 1325 (Dakota) Flight at Christmas Island; in the event because the British Nuclear Testing (Operation Grapple) had come to a halt I ended up remaining at RAF Changi, along with some thirty others, all aircraft tradesmen bar one: Cpl Michael (Mike) Hole who was to run the Flight's Admin Office for the single year that we were to remain at Changi. To the best of my knowledge Mike had been an Admin Apprentice; he was then in his early twenties, as was I, so my guess is that his training would have been around about 1955. I was an Aircraft Apprentice (81st Entry) 1955/58 and am now aged 83, so I would guess he to be somewhere round about 85; I realise that the chances of making contact are slight, but Hey, if one doesn't try . . . etc. Thank you. Kind regards, Brian.

I haven't seen or spoken to him since so would be absolutely delighted if there was some means of getting back in touch with him again after all this time. Any assistance or advice the Association may be able to provide would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Paul Rowse, Plymouth (ex 48th entry Boy Entrant)
