I was a regular in the R.A.F as a photographer from 1952 to 1955. I served nearly all of the time in Bad Eilsen, 56 kms from Hannover, of Germany in the 4th Mobile Field PhotographicSection. I was also attached to 3 MFPS for some time. I saw service Bückeburg, Bad Eilsen, Köln (Cologne) Wahn airport as well as finally at HQ 2nd T.A.F in Mönchen-Gladbach. I was demobbed on 10th December 1955 as Corporal Photo II. We have a meeting annually in Bad Eilsen, known as the Bad Eilsen Reunion. One of our members and a friend of mine was the famous Andy Wiseman, prisoner at the infamous Stalag Luft III of the "Wooden Horse Escape" fame who lead the the Long March out He has now passed on but has been on TV many times. If you know of any member who may have served at that time, I would certainly appreciate being able to contact him or her. Best regards, Carl

I would like to say goodbye to all the friends that I have made over the years that I have been a member of the Benalmádena branch. I am returning to the UK. in February and I will miss you all, but I will be back to see how you all are getting on in the future. Carry on the good work.

Hi,
I'm Jim Semple Secretary and founder member of the R.A.F. Lyneham Old Boys Association. I always look at your site and find it most informative and a good read in general, there is only one draw back, my wife Doreen and myself have stayed in the area of Benalmádena many times, and when we look at your website, we get very enveaous especially when the weather is bad here.
We have several members who frequent the area and would be most interested in any information you could let us have regarding good Bed & Breakfast Accomodation or villas/apts to let that you could recommend.
Nice to see you have a Hercules aircraft from Lyneahm on your Photo/Album page.
I thought your jokes on the newsletter were very good. We have a Jokers club, i.e. members email joke to each other, if you would like us to forward them on to you just let me have the email address and it will be done.
Please wish all the members of RAFA Benalmádena All The Best for The New Year from all at L.O.B.A

Jim Semple

Comments re sending branch notices by post to Steve Mullis :
