As a very young armourer changing fire bottle cartridges in the very cramped wing roots on Valiant Aircraft, in addition the enjoyable responsibility of operating the bomb lifting equipment on top of the fuselage, clearing snow off of the wings, and the thrill of watching a mass start and launch. The very sad sight of Valiant’s being cut up at RAF Honington.

The removal and replacement of ejection seats on Victor Aircraft and the difficulty of closing the doors on the packing of the tail brake chute on Victor’s on cold wet nights. The display of the mass take off that the Vulcans put on when leaving RAF Coningsby.
