I have stepped in as temporary editor and hope to produce a winter edition.
As you all know I was co-editor with George Edwards and it is always a constant struggle to produce a magazine without contributions but I am willing to give it a go again, as I believe Flashpoint is the corner stone of the association and is still the only contact that some members have with the association So I hope you will try and make an effort and contribute to your own magazine.
I have to pass all this on to RBL before they will issue tickets All tickets will have members name written on it and proof you are the person holding the ticket will be checked before being allowed on to Horse Guards Parade. My contact details are on this site and also in Flashpoint Ron Brown 294 Hi I'm Steve Parry ex Brize Changi Fairford Wildenrath and Leconfield, just to say hi and wish all who knows.
Me well served from 1967/1976 loved every minute saw this after looking at Changi fire write up 1970 Regards Hi, does the name Michael "Mike" Chamberlaine ring any bells? He was an RAF Fireman and possibly stationed at RAF Halton (1989) and RAF Stanbridge (1973), he was also stationed in Dsseldorf, Germany (1977) he also went to the Falklands. Unfortunately Mike and myself were not bought up together and I would very much like to know more about him. Regards I am wondering if anyone would know my partner's dad.
Items from the shop are with certain members and should anyone wish to purchase anything please contact me on 01252 492111 to discuss your requirements.
I would also like to thank Steve Barrick, the only member of the RAF Fire Service to make monthly contributions by Standing Order (SO).
A 9.9% increase in the last three months, which is brilliant, and I would like to thank all those members of the RAF and the Association who have contributed to this success.
Although he has never met him, we have been given the names of Crisp or Trevelyan, first name Simon or Steve He was a fire-fighter at St Mawgan circa 1991 which was when my partner's mother fell pregnant with him. If anyone has any information that may help please get in touch.
I am trying to discover the whereabouts of Terry & Yvonne Rowe.
Certain items have been donated to the Museum but not any clothing.
