One of our Branch members, Tony Moore, is organising a reunion of Int Corps personnel who did their basic training in Ashford in Squad 29 which began training in November 1969. He is particularly trying to track down Bill Soutar and Ian Parfitt.

Can anyone shed any light on their whereabouts?

William Fowler I served at 2 Wireless Regiment in Cyprus 1951/52. I would like to be able to find any person who served in the Y Services at that time.

Have we any members who served at that time?

Olive Spinks I am contacting you to see if I can find some surviving members of the women’s Royal Corps of Signals. My mother is Olive Spinks and she was one of the morse code interceptors. Today she has Alzheimer’s disease but because old memories become more significant she speaks very fondly of this period of her life. I am wondering if you have any contacts with the women who may have known her? She currently lives in Bendigo, Australia in an aged care facility which is near me. It would be wonderful if I could find someone who would be keen to write to her and reminisce about these war years.
