  2. Hi A Little info on SAC Colin Baker as listed above. Colin Joined the RAF as a Boy Entrant with myself and 10 other lads at Cosford for a Photographer II course in September 21st 1960 in the 41st Entry from Cosford Colin was posted with myself to RAF Wittering in Bomber Command he then went off the RAF Gutersloh I went to RAF Bruggen — he then got an exchange posting to Bruggen — Colin was always a very popular lad and a great Motor Cycle fanatic – he also helped run the Scout Troop in Germany — Seven members of the 41st are still in contact and we meet up every two years and all have great memories of Colin. From Cpl Ralph Hoult now residing in his home town of Ramsgate

    1. I recall Colin coming to Rheindahlen on his BSA Spitfire of which we were very envious.
      He visited a few times. I did not know him well but recall him sharing his bottle of Drambuie when we attended the Elephant rally at the Nürburgring in 67. The only thing that kept me from freezing sleeping in my tent at 12 below C.

  3. Sadly I have just heard via the Brixmis annual news letter that SAC Nigel Green has passed away sometime this year. He was a Brixmis member from 1963 until 1965. I have no other details.

  4. I was informed recently that Dave Newham (Sgt Photo G) passed way sometime in 2017. I knew Dave and I know he served in Germany, I became friends with him when he and I were Instructors at JSOP Cosford, and afterwards at his last posting as i/c at Cranwell.
    After demob. he resided in Tewkesbury.

    1. Hi Phil

      Do your remember how old John Frendo was when we served with him in 1974, I had a drink with him on a Malta visit in about 2000.

      1. Hi Dave, I seem to remember him being a lot older than me, about 40ish. He used to tell tales of Malta during the war. A very nice man.
        Glad to see you are ok Dave.

  8. Ref: SAC Nigel Green on the site. Wondering if it was the same guy who I had as an SAC at Bruggen in 86-87 in the Ground section. Don Lambert

    1. According to Stan Leeds earlier – “He was a Brixmis member from 1963 until 1965”
      I seem to remember a SAC Nigel Green at Northolt from about ’87; he might have been trying for commission at the time if I remember right. Might he be who you’re thinking of? – I wondered the same!

  9. I heard some time ago that SAC Stan Westerman (Gutersloh and Laarbruch) passed away. Also (unless I am totally wrong, Jon Grimshaw. Does anyone know if Squadron Leader Arthur Chorley is still around?

  10. Another sad loss although from a while back is RAF Malta SAC Sammy Cassar. I was told whilst on holiday a few years ago by his cousin, who owned a photographer’s shop that he had died of cancer back in the 80’s. Sammy was a very popular guy. Although RAF Malta, he did a tour in Cyprus back in the 60’s.

  14. Dear Kris,
    Some considerable time ago I added the following names to the Remembrance Parade, I hoped that someone who knew them better than myself might add an obituary for them but this has not happened.
    Flight Sergeant Clive Sutherland and Stan Snow.
    My knowledge of Clive was literally what I have written, we never served together at a normal station so I know nothing of his family life, maybe this will jog someone’s memory. Stan I did know a bit better but his service before 1958 is a mystery to me & he rarely talked about his past. I hope this will be O.K. for you to add to their names at some time.

    Like many of my good friends in the association I am knocking on a bit now so felt the need to write this as many people will not know them, I see many names with no information about them which is a shame as somebody went to the trouble to inform you about them, maybe like me the information they have is incomplete but better that than nothing.

    Thank you for the job you do running the site & keep up the good work.

    All the Best, Ian Evans

  15. Hi Kris, hope all is well with you and congratulations on the ever-improving website.

    I was looking at the Remembrance Parade, I think Frank Brian should be Frank Brain – am I right?
