Wrexham Branch – Air Training Corps    1974 – 1977

Air Cadet

Plenty of playing at being in the RAF .. attended a glider pilot’s course and attained my British Gliding Association A & B Certificate requiring three solo flights in a knackered old Second World War glider (called a Slingsby T1 Sedbergh). Never been so terrified.  They followed it up by then sending me off to Malta where I drove a gunship for ten seconds and joined a submarine hunt over the Med in an RAF Nimrod.
