"We were there doing what in those days was called 'The Ministry' course,
and then went onto London to do our ATC"

The instigator of this page.

All of these photos have been contributed by Barry and his friends, "a lot of them are scans of scans from other folks photographs I scrounged" Thanks also go to John Gridley who has put dates and names to pictures from those far off days.
"John Gridley is the guy with the memory (well, at least with some things). We had a re-union (the first) a couple of years ago and I remember seeing him throw his arms around a couple of girls (ladies now of course) and saying, 'I'm John Gridley, did I sleep with you?'  I thought it was such a super throw away line....."
They are certainly a great collection of photographs capturing this time and a substantial catalogue of people, individual groups and events, even the backdrops are of familiar recognisable places.

December 2000 at The Royal Crescent in Bath.
