Light Dragoons Association Weekend, July 08

#1
Any of the old guys attending the association weekend in Jul? With a bit of luck I will meet some old long lost friends, as long as they dont drink all of my beer.

How's it going mate, only a pity you did not have the time to hang round for a drink during your fleeting visit to the school a couple of years back, would have been good crack.

Find it odd that boggles aint jumped in on this one.
Still thinking about it. I walked out in August 1982 and have never looked back. Knowing that there will be at least one person there that gives a sh!t gives me a warmer feeling about it.

Never been to one of these things. Not a clue about form, dress (long ball gown in the evening is it?), administrative arrangements etc. Got to consider Her Who Must Be Obeyed cos she hasn't been well. It's a bit of a bitch going on a p!ss-up though when my body can no longer tolerate alcohol.

I was considering calling HHQ and seeing if they gave me a warm feeling.

Drop me a line (or post it here) that answers all or some of my questions and I'll ask up the chain of command.

Mate, Im still trying to get the full gist of the weekend, if you want to go you will need to contact HHQ and book your tickets. Will be great to see you again if manage to get there and dont worry I am sure there will be more people trying to make a name for themselves and annoy me than you.

Phoned HHQ on a number from an old journal. My name is down. What worries me is that from my surname he got me in one. Does this mean there is only the one of me ever to have served? Big Brother must be watching me.

It's on my team's wallchart mate.

Looking forward to seeing you, I will be there with my good lady wife, I am sure we can pass many hours talking about the old days. Do you have a hotmail account? whats your E-Mail address?

Went to the last one in swanton, had a great time -once we found the camp!!!

It was great to see so many guys we had served with but had not seen in too many years, would really like to go but work dictates otherwise.

BL yp would have been great to have a beer with you and the rest last time, but there is never enough time to do all you want when you want,

I am hopeful that I will get back to visit everyone at some time in the future.

TS :D
