    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.

    Oh yes, a day I will never forget, flag at green, PSA down range fixing the mover, GPMG opens up, Fred the SSM nearly has a heart attack, now that was funny, but as luck would have it the gunner was sh*t and missed them all. How you doing mate.

    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.
