1958/9 Stationed in the Radio School RAF Compton Bassett I met my first true love Celia from Edinburgh. Always wondered what happened to her after we last met RAF St mawgon,just before I was posted to Germany!

I was at Compton in 1955 on the TPO course and again in 1956 on the Wireless course, loved the time I spent there and am still in touch with some of the Wraf friends I met there, they were good times.
