Obituaries, Deaths and Funerals
Graham and I were on the same basic course at Debden in 1971 (3 of 71). When I departed for Aldergrove in May 71 he went onto the Dog School. We kept in touch whilst I was still in the RAFP and he did in fact visit me and my family at Valley in 75/76 whilst he was stationed at Staxton Wold. I think that he went to Cyprus after that followed by Brampton when he got his Ďthirdí. I last spoke to him by telephone when he was a F.Sgt at RAF Sealand.
Graham was very much ĎA Man of Kentí.
