Were You On The Sqn in November 1993?

Hey Jim,

I’ve only just got hold of Gareth’s email, so expect a message from him before long.

You’re still j****

Thanks Jim. I’ll pass this on to Gareth and I’m sure he’ll be in touch.

Field Deployments by Al Holman

From Dave Atkinson:

It was interesting to read the posts from Al Holman re the books and his 4 Sqdn period.

I was a Nav Inst mech on 20 at Wildenrath 1971 – 73 and have good memories of Flt Lt Holman as he was back then on 20. Al and his wife used to socialise with the ground crew at the Rugby Club etc but, if I remember correctly, they were told not to. He was one of the best and remember him being on TV down in the Falklands shortly after that conflict finished.

I wonder if he has contributed the events of his wheels up landing at Geseke in XW766? It was a 3 Sqdn jet on loan to 20 at the time and, after repair, it flew again 14 months later.

Yes, pretty sure Al was on 20 then IV, although I saw the Sqn markings as 1 Sqn! Bah!

Hi Geoff – please send me some stories and photos!

Lost Members

Thanks for the info re. Colin Medhurst – I’ve now updated my records. Des was at the Sqn event when the Sqn became IV(R) at Wittering, some five years ago. Still going strong then, donated a painting to the Sqn to commemorate the event.

MPs outraged as consultants get £1.1m from deal to axe Harriers

Yes, completely outrageous. (Sorry I didn’t publish your note to me in December about this – best to post directly as you are doing!)

Dump Jets

My son (RN pilot) told me that this wasn’t the case. The rumour was, I think, all the Harriers for £40M, but apparently it’s not true.

Reversing the defence cuts is one U-turn Cameron should take

I mentioned that to my son earlier today (he’s a pilot in the Navy) and he said that it wasn’t true.

Association Dinner – 28 Jan – Now at the George

Hi Kevin, I’m not planning to do another mass email, I’d rather save that for emergencies and very high priority information. Just check into the website once a week or so, I’ll make sure everybody gets plenty of notice. If you’d like to be alerted to updates to fourfax, simply click on “Entries RSS” on the left, under “Meta”, and then choose which RSS reader you use. Works really well, I get all my news this way (best Mac RSS programme: NetNewsWire). Hope this helps, Chris

We will definitely make sure everybody gets plenty of notice next time!
