I hope we quickly knocked that out of you!

As for the fresh-faced bit, a few late nights and lots of beer will have had you looking old before your time!

I told my son in law that this was not for him and thankfully the dyslexic Master Chef who is on his last 6 months here has had to agree. The beans are ready!!!

78C and feeling positively young in such ancient company ;) I have only one photo from my whole time at the AAC and even that was taken on BMC... I'm glad others had the presence of mind to own a camera back then and it's great to visit the sites in ece69's link for a nostalgia-check every now and again :thumleft:

Today is the Annivesary of my arrival at the hallowed gates of the AAC. 73C, after jeepland I went into A Coy & proceeded to spend my remaining 5 terms as an AT resident in A5.

Scarred me for life, made me grow up into an almost responsible adult.

Here are more pictures. I don't remember where on the internet I found most of them but I hope I'm not infringing any copyright! If I am let me know and I'll delete them.
