Where's Wally? (Scampton, 1970's, XH558)
« on: February 22, 2016, 08:29:37 PM »
Hi guys,
Hoping someone can help me here. My dad (Bob Richards) was chief tech on XH558 for a number of years at Scampton. He was at Scampton for 14 years, leaving in 1982(ish) to go to Cranwell.

He spent years on 558 and we are hoping to surprise him with what will probably be a pretty emotional visit to see her for his 73rd birthday in May, and I know that a guy he worked with on 558 at Scampton - and has warm memories of - was called Wally. That's all I know. Needle, haystack...but it's worth a go. It would be awesome if we could track Wally down. I know they'd both have some hair-raising tales to tell about the trips they took with 558.

Of course in these days of data protection I don't expect anyone to just cough up personal details, but I'd be really garteful for any help anyone could give us.

Many thanks!
