821 Bennett entry. Passed a lot of water under the bridge since then. Came outside in 1999. Since then had a few jobs, now running the facilities in a casino. How times have changed.

Hi - looking at your 821 photo of Griffin - it very much looks like our 801 entry photo - a couple of the guys are very recognisable to me!!

I was in 813 entry in the September. I loved my time at Fishguard, so much so I was back-classed, lol. Lots of happy memories of this place and wish I'd stayed in touch with some of the guys.

I have written a history of Artificers from 1868-2010 which is now available from Troubador Publisging, I hope it will be of interest to some of you.

Great to see all these old photos of Fisgard. I was part of 801 entry into Spickernell, but left in the summer of 1981 after I was selected for MEA instead of my preferred WEA. Ended up emigrating and doing marine SAR for 10 years on the West Coast of Canada instead! Thanks for reminding me of Spike. He-she used to sit on my shoulder whilst I was reading mail from home.

I was part of 813 entry in Spickernell division, although, due to ill health I only lasted until March 1982. I just wish things had been different. Working as a Technical Author these days, for a software company.
