Christmas wishes to all my old shipmates 1954/62 may you have a good xmas with your families and friends and may the year 2017 bring with it good health and another great reunion. I am only sorry that my trips home to the UK always seem to be at the wrong time of year but family weddings etc. come first though I always manage to catch up with a few shipmates on my visits

Subject:Boat in the Blue
 

I have recently obtained a second copy of Doug Pereira's book, "Boat in the Blue". I have had my original edition since its publication in 1985, so this one is surplus to requirement. Consequently, it is free to the first Club Member who calls me and stakes a claim. Just one condition, the claimant must make a donation to Club Funds. ( For your information:- Amazon's price ranges from £25 for a used copy and £200 for the one New Copy) This copy on offer, is pristine and I defy anyone to tell the difference between it and a new copy. I'm not expecting anyone to match Amazon, but any donation to the Club will be most welcome.
I look forward to your phone calls and good luck to the first caller.
You will find my home details on the Club Membership List.
Regards to all,
John Parsons

Everyone is very welcome to celebrate Mavis and Gay’s long lives at The Royal Oak which is just 7 miles from Christ Church.

Our desire is for family flowers only with charitable donations in aid of the Macular Society and Prospect Hospice, Wroughton either at the Church, via Mavis and Gay’s (separate) Tribute pages or c/o the Funeral Directors, Gerald W Burden, 37 Church Street, Amesbury, Salisbury SP4 7EU.

Many thanks for the latest copy of "Webfoot". Each copy brings back many memories of my time in the RAF. It is sad that many of my old shipmates are no longer with us. Still it is good to see that they are remembered in articles in the magazine. Once again many thanks to those involved in producing such a good magazine as I am sure that it takes considerable time of research.

To all members that ask whether we can stop these spammer idiots posting on this page, then simply as it is open to the public NO.
But I am notified of every entry by e-mail and as soon as I pick up that notification I can delete or amend as necessary.
However as I am not on the computer 24/7 they sometimes remain on for a few hours or at most a day.
So I hope this answer your queries.
The next edition of Webfoot will be at the printers this week so will be with you all very soon.
