It's time to be sensible and I have decided that as it stands at the moment Deb's and I will not be attending the reunion. Deb's has to be my primary concern and I think the journey to Barnsley would be just to far for Deb's. All being well I hope we can make Caythorpe. Chris

"The 2016 Reunion is getting closer and I would be grateful if anyone who intends coming but hasn't returned their profroma does so before the end of March. I will be going to Barnsley shortly to finalise with the hotel as I am going to be on holiday for a large part of April. Looking forward to seeing you all in May".

Have had letters from Jake Mateyawa in Fiji to say that he would like to come to the reunion but requires financial help to do so. He has contacted the Royal Commonwealth and ex services League (London) who helped him 2006 but unfortunately his request for his fares has been declined. Are there any secret millionaires out there, if so, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Dear Members of the OCA/RBL Western-on-Green Branch,

We now need to fill a number of positions in the association and in our RBL branch. Our RBL secretary, Taff Duffy and Treasurer, John Aspinal have held the reigns for well over 12 years and now feel they would like to hand over their responsibilities. Is there anyone out there willing to take on these duties, if so please contact Taff and John direct or via the website for more information.

The OCA also needs to replace Dick as vice chairman. The duties of vice chair are covered in our constitution but broadly entail, deputise for the chairman, assist chairman to produce an annual news letter. Write obituaries and articles for the Wire and Pegasus Magazines and liaise with the current Squadron. If you wish to be considered for this position you should be sponsored by two ordinary members and the position confirm by a show of hands at the next AGM. Please contact Taff Duffy, secretary OCA direct or via the website for more information.

Hi. All I have spoken to Mal (Taff) Parker this morning and as you all know he has missed the last couple of reunions including Caythorpe the problem is he has a bit of a heart problem and finds it hard to travel long distances he will be missing from Barnsley this year so let's all wish him well and hope they fix him soon.

Yes, I knew Arthur very well. I went on mid tour leave with him to Cyprus. Arthur (I never knew him as spud) was a B1 Cpl OWL and reputed to be the best OWL in the Squadron and could do 35 WPM morse. He pulled Sgt at 33rd Para RA. In Cyprus we hired a car together. Had a great time together.I would love to meet again
