I first met Tom Hayes when he was one of our Pl Corporals in Depot (273 Pl) along with Tommy Morrison and Griff Williams as Pl Sgt. Not so many years ago Smudge Smith (another from 273) bumped into Tom Hayes when Tom worked on Security at Fort Dunlop Birmingham. Great guy and a good instructor.

Hi Nick,

The Sheild is interesting I do not know if Doug remembers but the reason Dutch Holland is holding with his hands at the top is because someone dropped it and the plaque on the top came off on one side and was hanging down, so he had to hold it in postion Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I believe that Dutch who went to 2 Para had rather a dodgy spell there I cannot seem to get to the bottom of it!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Can,t remeber the accident,Dutch was champion recruit of 141,and yes he did go to 2 para and quicky rose to cpl. However whithout going to detail,he was a naughty cpl,and soon left the regt.He came from southampton .

Hope you had a good visit with jason,The main reason we start on the guest book is to draw attention to the forum.not everbody has logged into the forum.so it is a way of drawing attention to it,and if you are not a member,you can,t access the workings of the forum.Hope you are okay.bill fagg and bob giggs are looking to pay me a visit in july.I hope to post some more photo,s soon,i,ve got to find out how the TESCO,s machine works.perhaps you have some of 142.Jonny(squeak) holborn,Joe lylle, paddy smith,even dear old Ron (zoom) Spenser.

I,ve accidentlly remove the photo. i,ll put it back when I find out how Sad A couple of more names are.Cowboy Johnson,Tom Parker,the half hidden face?? and the guy on the right escapes me. jock Dalgarno,s career was short live as he had rather a bad parachuting accident,and was invalided out.The pl corporals were Hinchcliffe, and Milne.The chap on the right of Sgt Herbert is Sandy Bennett,Sandy died rescently,His ashes are to be dispersed into the Helford passage on Saturday.At the TREBA Military day,sponsored by the Royal Cornwall PRA,in aid ofPara Regt Charities.
