Please allow me to introduce myself...

Hi all

Just found this site and have spent all day wallowing in reminscences of old pubs, ships, bases etc. The older I get the more I seem to miss it all!

I was in between 1976 and 1985 and left as an MEM(M)1 (hey, I motored me!). Always guz based except for one summer in Pompey at Sultan on AMC course.

Worked for a bit in the Two Trees on Union Street on leaving and eventually spent 3 years as an engineer on coasters (home trade).

Anyway - how are you all doing? Glad I found the site.

All the best

Tim (George)
 
If you were in the Trees between April and September 1985, then it's more than likely mate!

The Landlord at the time was called Yorky (ex matelot), can't remember his real name!

Dont know how I managed to get that picture of the Angel on there but I'm chuffed to bits with it , :roll:
 
Great pic dondon. Did you take that? I was working on the Team Valley when the Angel was being constructed and used to peddle up there in my lunch break to watch it go up.

This thread is becoming a bit like a Rosyth draft. Hinny bus anyone?

How do you get a badge on here? I might be able to keep one of those, my last ones were on with velcro!

Tim
