From 1966 until 1971 I was a Police Dog Handler in the Royal Air Force.

For approximately 3 years I was stationed at R.A.F. Bruggen in Germany guarding the Vulcan bombers which at the time was part of the Cold War.

I think it was sometime in 1969 that my tour of Germany finished and I was sent to R.A.F. Finningley for approximately 6 months, then they closed R.A.F. Finningley down and I was sent on to R.A.F. Scampton.

So I presume that in that 6 months at R.A.F. Finningley I could have been guarding XH558 if she was there then.
