Yes it was me and the rest of the Historic Flt rabble that were there. Cake was baked by our very own wolf woman. It was a high pressure job but we pulled it off. Met one or 2 old faces including Stew Fountain, who I knew on 20/15. Now their training Sgt.

It was on local news, but cant find linky thing. JB double away...

Stu was one of my LAC's on 20, met up with him last month for the first time in 19 years! Hasn't changed a bit, apart from a few kilos!

I joined 20 from RTU when it closed and we on TSF were all posted to 66 or 20. That must have been 95/96.
