Re(1): No 11 Loadmasters course

The actual members selected to start No 11 Loadmasters Cse were Stereo Conway Sgt, Les Wells Sgt and Me Bob Heffernan Cpl. Incidentally I became the first Cpl to be selected for L/m training previous to this one had to have a minimum of Sgt Rank. It was obvious from the start that Stereo was not going to make it so due to Vietnam tasking and a developing high work load, and as we were still in the Air move phase, Bernie Desmond and co decided to check some of the other Cpls on the course for their interest and ability and after vetting Col Tigwell and Billy Ross were approached to continue with the flying phase. Which they did and following a selection committee run by Crazy Horse were able to join myself and Les. When we started the flying phase, Johnny Zarb, who had been back coursed from 10, joined us but still did not qualify, which left us with The fighting Four Qualifying.
