This is a signal from an ex-signaller to those colleagues
of mine who tapped the keys in those days and are who knows where now. If you
find this page, you might like to drop me a line and say hello. It would be fine
to have an e-mail chat and hear how life went. Yes, this is Bob Priddy. (dit-dit-de-da-dit, dit-dit). If you want to read my
account of being in the RAF, please contact me.
I live in Norway near Oslo, where I have been basically resident since 1960, and
am retired. All are included in this invitation, as well as some not on the sprog
photo, such as John ('Ginger') Mason, Tom Boad and others (eg. Peter Varney).

Also a newspaper clipping about the forced landing I endured when the Perceval Prentice lost the engine power at 1000 ft. over ploughed fields - I was the signaller under training on that aricraft. The pilot and I eere lifted by helicopter to RAF Martlesham Heath and later flown back to Swanton Morley.
