Glyn,
Sorry to say I don't remember you - but then after a stroke & a TIA, I don't remember anything these days. Anyone seen my beer?
Happy Christmas, one and all! :)) :)) :)) :)) :))

Should that not be "grocers' apostrophe"?      Being the apostrophe of the grocers!

Highlighting names, italic fonts..... why ?

Some estimated 70,000 names have to go on that wall (and probably a few more). Why can't people just be glad to be part of it for posterity.

I totally agree. What a lot of fuss - as if anyone will ever see one name among 70,000 unless they are in alphabetical order. Anyway, the vast majority will never go anywhere near Finningley to see it!

I always wanted to fly Spitfires until I went to Farnborough & saw the Roly Falk Vulcan Barrel Roll &, a couple of years later saw the Vulcan do a LABS
manoeuvre. That was the year I discovered the RAF had no more Spitfires so I said I'll have one of those instead!

Strange, isn't it, my wife married a Vulcan pilot too!

My humble thanks to you for your service.
I can't conceive of a more desirable career choice than VULCAN Pilot, almost an astronaut but without all of that floating about nonsense!  :)

And being paid for it! Sheer Heaven!!

Come on Guys & Gals! The decision is made & they will not change their minds. Nobody is more disappointed than I am having flown the aircraft. We have to live with it so let's make the best we can of it & be thankful to those who have helped give us 8 wonderful extra years that we did not expect.

As there is absolutely no point in getting angry, I suggest the thread should be closed!
