Trying to find

brown_eyed_girl said:
Ok I know this is a long shot, not even sure if I'm posting on the correct place. No abuse please but I'm just gona have to come out with it I am hoping to find a guy who I met on holiday (Magaluf) past couple of days. I didn't even ask his surname all I know is this, he was about late 30's early 40's about 6 foot name is Graham and he served in the Marines at Portsmouth at some point. Head is shaved, going grey had a slightly silver fox look about him he looks like Simon King the guy from Springwatch :roll: He's not serving now, living somewhere just outside Manchester. I had to bolt from the hotel as I was catching an early morning flight (which I missed) so no time to exchange details.

A fairly accurate description of our Chico, recently seen heading towards Magaluff on his Discharge Leave. :wink:

Part of me was thinking "RMA" but I'm not sure about that as an idea, to be honest ...........

I'm a bit surprised that he said he "served in the Marines at Portsmouth". Plymouth, yes, Arbroath, yes etc ............. Portsmouth? Hmmm.

Brown-eyed girl: where did you meet this guy? In a bar? At the hotel?

Come on guys you are so harsh. I'm simply loved up!

In love with a Royal Marine? How dare you - do you not know there is only room in his life to love one person? Himself?! :shock: :wink:

Thought that was Pilots :? there I go thinking again :oops:

Ha! Sure it's not Stix!

No, I know it was a very brief description, but it was enough to describe the person I imagined. Which UPO is the question, but probably one I shouldn't ask!
