Am unhappy to have discovered by chance - via the thread RAF Tornado aircraft farewell flypasts - that RAF Leuchars is now Leuchars Station. Did lots of dets there with 101 producing some of my best ever hangovers.

Like the time I was the last one onboard the last jet of a 4 bird det returning to Brize. Chocks was a perfectly reasonable 09:30 for a straight transit back to Brize, no brackets. Yet I nearly missed it and I should've been on the second jet. I wasn't so much hungover as still drunk! :dunce: :beers:

The next thing I knew was waking up in an empty jet, at a silent Brize. :confused1: Making my way offboard I found a note in the galley: "Lock up the jet and the Squadron before you go home!".  :confused1: The time was about 6pm! :goggleeyes:
I miss going to Leuchars too, I was part of the team (civilian) that installed test stations of the ADV radar there, and then went up there several times a year to service several bits of it..
By chance there was a WO who was  there who was a mere Cpl when I knew him Some years before, and also a Cpl who was on my intake into the RAF. Both were by this time looking after the Rapier Electronics..

Sorry to hear of your loss John but as you say, his suffering is over. I know it seems a bit trite, but it does get easier. However, we never forget - I still remember some of the things my Dad used to do and say, and he left us 22 years ago.

Last night we had a small family get together. The family arrived and we sat in the garden chatting for a while, before two of us went to get a Chinese takeaway for everyone. We got as far as the cash machine, before getting a call that my wife had had an accident, so we rushed back.

She was lying pretty well face down, conscious, bleeding a bit and with her leg at a funny angle in the mangled wreckage of our camping table.

We stopped her moving until an ambulance arrived and miraculously she'd only suffered cuts and bruises - we really couldn't believe that her leg could get in that position without something being broken.

The downside is that we spent the entire night in A&E while our guests looked after our children and after various tests, she was admitted at  7:45 this morning (12 and a 1/4 hours after she fell). She is now in for further tests to determine why she blacked out and fell (for the second time), why her heart rate has been elevated all night and whether it is anything to do with the very nasty meds that she is on for rheumatoid arthritis.

Meanwhile I have returned home to relieve our guests and reassure our children.

wishing her a speedy recovery, and hopefully a quick identification of the cause, with hopefully a simple resolution.

Very sorry to hear this, Steve, and I hope the medics can get to the bottom of the problem.

Hope your wife is soon okay Steve and the problem is sorted out. You raise the possibility that the problem may be due to her current medication. I work on the theory that we are given a medicine to cure a problem, but that medicine may have side effects, so you are given a medicine to cure the side effects etc etc. I have to take a tablet every day ad infinitum, but that tablet gives me rhinitis. The Doctor said that she could give me something for that, I said, "No thanks". Best wishes to your wife.
