Re(4): The last LF Parade in England
IP: 213.122.248.133


Morning folks ex LF and Reme,well this string has triggered some new memories ..for me!
First Bill Duggan,I was in the MT at that time,but had no participation in the parade,I`m sure was a landrover driver for the newly formed Support coy.
And I`m sure Bill was 81mil mortar crewe driver.
This leads me to another person of interest,Bill McDonald(who at that time) was plt Sgt.the quickest promotion I had ever seen ,during my time in 1LF
I can remember Mac,and a good few others doing a mortar cadre in Weeton taught by capt. Betley,
Mac and Jim gibbons,Dave Yarnall excelled on the cadre and were sent to the school of infantry at Hythe?(not sure of the correct name)
Anyway on return Mac was promoted to cpl.,then sgt!
Mac was a Bury grammer school lad,very well educated and had the option of going right to university,but chose Army instead,and he told me,he was offered officer traning,but refused,he wanted to see if he could work hi way through the ranks,which he did and became a col att to nato
I think Geoff,he could have been about two drafts before you at Sutton?
I knew Jim Gibbon kept in touch with him in the 70,s 80,s
And he came onto this site a few years ago,wishing us all well
He was then working for some charitable org.in Africa?
Any one else Remember mac?..sorry sir Col mac
Vince
