When Robert Jones first opened the site in 1994 he couldnít have imagined that it would ever attract so many members and so much interest as it has generated. Sadly Robert passed away unexpectedly in 1918. he made us promise we would continue the running of the site in his name and uphold its good name this we promised to do. Colin and I don't have the expert knowledge in running the site but we will prod along as best we can to uphold its name.

I do understand what you are saying Dilly, but early on in the 1960s, single soldiers had real problems at times, as for example, Xmas 1963, I was put on guard. I was put on guard because we were told, that we couldnít expect a married pad to do it, as they had families.
This happened to many of us frequently. We couldnít complain due to the fact the CSM and many of the senior NCOs were married, so they couldnít care less. The single soldier really was put upon. Also, the marriage allowance was really substantial. The single soldier was the poor relation.

I do realise that Tony was stating facts, but that was a soldierís lot, we didnít expect any different. Thatís how things were.

Itís great to hear that you have been married for nearly fifty six years, well done. May you have many more years.
