Hello all Im new to all of this but just to fill you in on my background. I served in the RMs for 17 years as a musician back in the 60s-70s and early 80s and would have liked to have served longer but got injured whilst attached to 40Cdo and spent quite a long time in RNH Plymouth and was eventually medically discharged with ongoing probs. In my time in the RMs I went to Northen Ireland 9 times, Malta 3 times (Was one of the last British troops on the island) Cyprus twice (Turks in location in 1979) and the rest is all over the world but mainly with Commando Unit visits as we were the HQ CDO Forces RM Band, ie Norway etc. Anyway thats enough of me apart to inform you that I have been a Rural Delivery Postman for the last 29 years and in 4 weeks Im going to retire from this and live the good live(I Hope) I live near Plymouth and have many ex RM oppos near me, but these numbers are sadly rapidly being depleted for all sorts of reasons. I still perform a couple of times a year and don the Green hat when playing the Last Post for some of our fallen comrades.
