Joined May 1962 - 46th Entry Clk Sec (last Apprentice Entry to pass out as Jnr Tech). Served at Upavon, RAF Support Unit (Australia) where I married my lovely wife Liz, Linton-On-Ouse, Faldingworth (daughter Michelle born 1970) then Air Attaché Tehran Iran (daughter Tania born 1972). Commissioned 1974. Estates/Families Off West Drayton, Adjutant Institute of Aviation Medicine (Farnborough), OC Recruiting SW Scotland (Edinburgh), OCPSF High Wycombe. Daughter Michelle died 1982. Retired 38 point Nov 1982 and emigrated to Australia. Settled in Adelaide South Australia and obtained position as Admin Mgr of Department Store (group of five in Adelaide). Eventually appointed Operations/Admin Mgr of group until taken over by another group in 1998. Had been involved in Community Training NFP organisation since 1984 as Chair and State rep. And Dep Chair of National Organisation. Offered position as Mgr of NFP Organisation that had obtained major employment services contract. Represented SA on Government Working Party. New govt scrapped contract and I left after 11 years. Worked as Business Development Mgr for community housing groups and obtained individual contract with govt as Energy Sustainability Assessor and then as Home and Business assessor. Decided to retire and work on home and garden but also volunteer two days per week with Organisation assisting older workers into employment. Liz and I enjoy travelling and have covered most continents which is an expensive exercise from this part of the world but our daughter Tania is a Senior Criminal Lawyer working in Alice Springs so doesn't need our support (at least that is the theory). We have one granddaughter Emma-Lee who is 17yrs and just about to finish High School. I support Australia in all sports (even cricket) but Rugby Union is my passion.
