  2. Moved here in the hope that it will be more relevant to the ex-RAOC who visit this board.

  3. Stu, sorry to hear of your Dad passing on at such a early age. I can't guarantee results but I'll circulate the details around the Association of Conductors and the Association of Ammunition Technicians. Many of them will have served at Kineton and I'm confident that some of them might have been there during period 65-69. Also suggest you get try the HQ RAOC Association at Deepcut. They have an Annual Newsletter wihich includes a "Lost Pals" section which might help identifying pals of your Dad. Link below:

    See my e-mail and PM to you.

    Stu I would give RAOC on line a bash.


  6. Cheers Percy,

    I forgot i had already used that site too when i first posted back in 2005.

    I dont seem to be having much luck really!

    Thanks Anyway

  7. He all,

    Someone has just posted this on the Raoc Website Hopefully someone will know a little more

    Hi Stu, I hope this may help a little. On the football photo, back row right, I believe that is Ian 'Mac' McKiernon. If anyone knows of Mac's whereabouts, maybe he can help. I was at Kineton 67/68 and would have known your dad but unfortunately cannot recollect him.

    Cheers, Ken.

    Thanks Again all
