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.

“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”
