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.

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.

Menu Revision

Posted by Gareth Harper on September 20, 2018 at 6:15 AM Comments comments (0)
Hi all, I have just been informed that the following amendments need to be observed regarding the menu choices. The Rack of Lamb would be an additional supplement, not sure exactly what that means. Also the Baileys Cheesecake is off the menu, so anyone who has ordered this or contemplating ordering this please revise your choice. Apart from this minor hiccup all is going well. Don't forget to let me have your menu choices asap. REgards Brummie.

Hi Brummie, Haven`t booked hotel; yet but will be there. Here is menu requirements. Minestrone Soup, Roast Beef, Apple Pie and custard. Hope this is ok. See you all in April Regards Ray (Geordie) Rowe

What's up

Posted by Gareth Harper on September 18, 2018 at 5:15 AM Comments comments (1)
Hi all, I am a little disappointed by the lack of response to the menu request i.e to let me have the menus choices as I need to let the hotel know provisional numbers and choices before I next go to the hotel for the event meeting. Please let me know if you have received the menu or not so that I can send them out. I know the event isn't till next year but time is of the essence it we want a truly momentous occasion.

Hello all, just to let you know I will be posting the Menu on the board sometime next week once I have received it from the hotel. In the meantime I remind you to list any dietary requirements you have on the booking form before you email it back to the hotel. I have to go back to the hotel 6 weeks prior to the REunion to ensure that everything is in order so please double check the booking form. More later, Brummie Harper.

Can anyone remember going from Ripon to RAF Conningsby to do some work, I think it involved an observation tower? by the way, it was a few years ago.

If any members have any email addresses of other members could I ask you to forward them to me as I would hate to miss someone out who might be looking forward to the REunion. Cheers Brummie Harper
