      Bloody hell Maggsy,   How are you,  We bought a smallholding in mid wales between Newtown and Welshpool. this is our 8th year now.  The last 5 years me and Billy Lyth have been attending the Falklands get together in Wrexham,  good pesh up.   

      What work do you do, I think the last time we spoke you was at the BBC.


      Was looking for some old pics yesterday and came across one of you ,me and craven sitting at a table down the lido in Aden.    so it that a coincidence or what..with you getting in touch.


      Not sure if it was Dave Fisher or Wyndhan Jenkins who said they were in hospital with you, having a bypass.??


      Will never forget the time when you said you were saving up for a bottom draw, I asked what have you got, you said a birdcage.

    Yup, spot on Jack, it was a bit chaotic for a while, but good old Mike B sorted it all out :). I must admit, it was much better when the Juniors were separate from the adults, better organised, and much more variety besides drill and weapons - me and 28 took our platoon to see the Battle of Waterloo battle field, very interesting, a few days away in Belgium did us all the world of good ! Far from the madding drill square.....

    It was around the time of the big change Alan. In 71/72 8 Coy was the recruit Coy. But then they created "Caterham Coy" for all adult recruits and the old 8 Coy and K Coy and so on became what had been the old Junior Gdsm wing.

    Well, it was 8 company, but by then (1973/74) it had mostly Juniors, and the odd Oswestry recruit as well. I'm seated 5th from the right front row. Front row 4th from right is Parry Taylor (RIP), full bloke 2nd to my left is Steve Fry (top man), CQMS on Major Richardson's right is Black Jack (I think). CSM Mike Butler(RIP) next to the CO. From the left - (?), Dai Williams 33, Scotty, 28 John Davies, Alan Denman , Larry John, Eddie the frog (RIP). 2nd row from left Junior RSM Mike George (1st Junior RSM of the Guards Depot....and in my squad, ahem), next to him Paul Lloyd - good rugby centre, played for us in the depot along with Mike George, Parry Taylor and John Davies. Lot of good guys in this photo, can't recognise most of them due to memory block, and the photo's a bit blurry (and no, I haven't been drinking !)
