1954.




The following item was sent in by Leon MacDonald, known as Mac.



I was “introduced” to West Kirby on Monday 5th July 1954.
Like most eighteen year olds standing on the platform at RAF Cardington waiting to board the train to West Kirby I thought my world had come to an end. We were “greeted” by this little Hitler of a drill sergeant who proceeded to put the fear of God into us. I can’t remember his name hence this email. I’ll give what sparse information I can remember in the hope that someone will be able to enlighten me.
Posted to RAF West Kirby Monday 5th July 1954
My squadron was Trenchard
The drill sergeant was a Yorkshireman who was about 5’ 6” tall at most
His favourite saying (when he caught someone swinging their arms about during drill instruction) was “what do you think you are, a bloody windmill? Keep your arm still or I'll tear it off and beat you to death with the soggy end”.
I remember one of the drill corporals came from Bournemouth. I believe he was an RAF boxing champion. I remember he had a BSA Gold Wing motorbike
As the August bank holiday came in the middle of our training, we would have had our passing out parade on Friday 3rd Sept 1954.

These are the only details as such that I can recall. Not much but hopefully someone can fill in some blank spaces, also I would like to make an appeal for a lad who was in the next billet to me. All I know about him is his RAF number which was 2727272. I’m hoping he would be able to come up with more information about our intake at West Kirby.

If you have any information on the above, please contact me Les Haines, webmaster.
Mac said he had someone contact him and they have been speaking on the phone.

=================================================================================

Last week I received the following E mail, and today the photos arrived.
One had the date April 1954, the other two are not dated. I have put them below Peter's E mail and if anyone knows or can give me information on Ronald Dean, plase get in touch, Les.
