To avoid confusion, we had Flash John Graham and Flash Phil Mead in the Regt. The former we all know so well. I remember the incident Colonel where the blokes let go of the rope as John was descending. I and John served quite some time as Cpl’s in training wing. During an upgrading session John gave me his scores and it read: Sk, BA, A, F. I asked, ‘what does BA mean John,’ his? reply, ‘Bove Average of course.’

It once took he and I nearly three days to move a bed from C coy lines across to B coy in Lemgo. We always did a first rate job. He was a wonderful man. He and Array Harris always came and had Christmas dinner with Gillian and I. One could write a book about this man, he is sadly missed. RIP John.
