I saw a comment ref "the West Kirby Ghost "seen near there ??

main gates riding his motorcycle he was quite a "tearaway "

RAF Regiment instructor 54/55. I was there the same time as Pat Pasque (Pask) He used to ride push bike with a Cycle Master engine in the rear wheel and was killed at the cross road Pump Lane and the camp road by the farm which is still there. He was a nice lad and well liked.
