Although my time in the RAF Fire Service was a brief one (mid 80's Kinloss) I still enjoy coming on here, and recognizing names and faces from then. Also reading stories from them about their time up there on the Moray Firth. Hello to all on here who remember me, hope all's going well.....

(Originally an email addressed to Steve Harrison regarding Flashpoint)

Hello Steve

Many thanks once again for all your time and valuable efforts in yet again getting myself, and all our members, another issue of "Flashpoint". I am sure that your paragraph, in reference to this being the last "Flashpoint"came as a shock to us all, also this could mean the collapse of the Association. I hope and with fingers crossed, this will not happen. Since joining the Association I have so many happy memories down the years from 1958--------1980. Surely somebody,within such a large membership that we have, will come forward, and save the day. If it is any help, Steve, you have my permission, if there way you could use this
e--mail as a "Fly Poster". I am sure it would be picked up and seen by quite a few, and hopefully, contact you and say "Steve I would like to carry on as your new Editor" . Sorry it cannot be me!!!. The article and continuing story "Foamlayers", went down very well. I have quite a few corrections to Colin Hall to his comments which I will leave until, if and, when we have another issue of "Flashpoint".
Once again Steve many thanks, I am sure somebody will twist your arm, and keep going with a Winter issue.
"As we we all were taught way back in in training days" : KNOCK OFF AND MAKE UP" Please, please, do not let this happen !!!

Kind regards

The following  3 members have paid their subs, but they must have moved. I have no  known address for any of them, so they are not receiving Flashpoint.

If anyone can help put me in touch please do so.

Thanks in advance
