Let me start this part of the page with a brief summary of our lives.

I was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 1952. Within months of my birth my family moved to Newton Nr. Alfreton to be near my fathers parents. I attended Newton Infant and Primary School until 1963 when I started at Tibshelf Secondary School, I was not a scholar! and left school at 15 years old with no qualifications. I managed to find a job as an apprentice with Bowmaker (Plant) Ltd of Clay Cross some 5 miles away. Bowmakers were then the largest importers of Caterpillar plant (bulldozers etc) in the UK. Whilst employed there I attended Chesterfield College of Technology, firstly on a years full time Engineering Craft Course and thereafter, on Day Release whilst studying for my Higher National Diploma (HND) (I never completed it, although I spent 2 years on the course) but I did manage to obtain my City & Guilds Certificate Part II in Engineering. In 1970 I decided to leave my job and try my luck at something else. After being accepted for the Army (REME) and changing my mind again, I eventually joined the RAF in Sep.1970.
