Vic, Glad to hear you had a great birthday, many more to come! As for not knowing what to spend the cash on, this is the first time I have heard an ex regular at such a loss!  Clue: NAAFI Bar,   Tom  (tongue in cheek!!)

Vic, the good thing is we still have our old comrades around, and we enjoy the company, and the chat. The problem these days is getting my memories back in the right sequence, but at least I have got guys around to sort it all out!! The good thing we all have together at the Reunion is that feeling of togetherness in all we do. Body may be weaker, but the spirit is  still there! Dickie Teese had a great day on Sunday when John Scrivener and some of the boys, together with Dickie's family and staff held the presentation of his Gold Association Scroll and Gold badge at his Residential Home. The day was sunny too, and the staff at his Home made a buffet for everyone, free of charge. He is still going, at 93, in fine spirit, though not so mobile. But the staff adore him!!
