This photo was recently found in the Faber archives! This is the CCF at RAF Waddington (home to the Vulcan bombers) in 1978 for a weeks camp!

It may well be of interest to some. My memory is somewhat hazy, but as far as I can remember (please fill in the gaps), names as follows:

  • Top: Tony Whitestone, Chris Browne, ?, ?, Guy Cordery, Mr Allen
  • Middle: Kevin Roddy, Chris Bean, Richard Bacon,?,?, Steve Squibb
  • Bottom: ?, Simon Kaner, ?Eaton?, Malcolm Faber, Richard Nye

I remember it being extremely cold in the wilds of Lincolnshire, freezing on night exercises. There was some Girls Venture Corps up there at the same time who provided some light entertainment – one of them fainted with the cold at morning parade!
