Myself, David and Christine Perry, Patrick Cobb, George Cowie, Gordon Dadd, Henry and Sara Day, Steven Duncan, Chris Ellis, Robert and Patricia Hopkins, Alan and Agnes Morton, Beryl Rutter, Paul and Judy Simmons* (but I believe that they have since cancelled) If your name is not on this list and you have booked it may be that you booked after this list was sent to me and your name will appear on the next one. Cheers all. Brummie

Come on Sappers only 12 of us have booked in for the reunion in April. Don't know if I went about it the wrong way but the numbers say it all. I know the event isn't till April but the hotel requires booking to be in by the end of February before I have to attend the Events meeting 6 weeks prior to the event. So come on lads and lasses book in and let's make this event something special. See you at the Belfry in April. "Hoorah for the "C.R.E".

Hello all, I hope you all had a good Christmas and New year. I have had the bookings so far for the RE-union and there are 7 who have booked so far. I do hope that this will be improving before the cut off time end of February /Mid March. If you can't email the booking form then phone it through direct to the hotel. Lets see the numbers rise and look forward to a memorable RE-union. Brummie

Hi Joe. The date for the20019 re-union is 27th & 28th April. There is a new site for the Shinys now and you will need to register on and there is a copy of the hotel booking form on page 5 of the Squadron Notice Board on that site. The re-union is being arranged by Brummie Harper so you will be able to get any info from him. I only replied to you because you hadn't had a reply from anyone. If you haven't got Brummies contact details PM me and I will let you have it. Regards Gordon

I came on this site to post a message I received from Andrew Jackson reference the passing of Geof Voce, only to find the sad news on the passing of Dave Basher. Dave was one of the training NCOs at Trg Regt when I was in Trg, he later became 1 troop's, troop Sgt at Ripon.

My condolences to both families.

Geof Voce

Forwarded message from Andrew Jackson:


Sadly, Geoff Voce died on 8th November in Ripon. His funeral will be held at Harrogate crematorium at 1.40pm on Friday 30th.

Geoff was Squadron Clerk for a good spell and, as I remember him, one of the squadron's top "fixers". He was 74 and leaves a son, daughter and two grandchildren.

After Tommy Robinson delivered his Soldier X petition to Downing Street, he and Janice Atkinson MEP with some followers and the press in tow visit Westminster Abbey Memorial Gardens. I intend going on Saturday and planting a 7 Field Company Cross.

Information Request

Posted by Geordie. C on October 10, 2018 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I recently had an email from a gentleman who is a resident and chair of Hessay parish council. He has seen some photos on my site of 3 troop working on a project in Hessay. He is recording the history of Hessay and has asked if I had any more information I can pass on. Is there anyone out there who remembers working on that project who can contribute anything? My email: [email protected] Thank you.

Please take a look at this video and sign the petition. All those in the higher Echelons are tripping over themselves to make sure they are best PC compliant. Our country needs to change fast.
