Taff Williams taking the charge kept a straight face but unfortunately I just couldn't and burst out laughing F/s Hazleden immediately reminded me that it was not a laughing matter but I couldn't stop. It was a quick seven day and out.

65th Anniversary
5 Sep 2017 (two days from now) is the 65th anniversary of the formation of the 72nd Entry.
I'm still living in Bali but will raise a glass, at the appropriate time, and toast all my colleagues and friends from that moment in 1952 when we signed to take the Queens shilling.
Cheers to all of us...its been a helluva ride!

My father was part of the 72nd entry as a member of the group from Pakistan Airforce. I recently came across some old photographs taken while at Halton and would happily share those if you like.

Best wishes.

Many thanks for making contact with the 72nd Entry website. I would be very pleased to share any photo's that you may have.The membersof the entry have for many years been trying to trace all our friends from Pakistan,as we do have a reunion each year(if Possible).Tracing has been extremely difficult and the reasons have been many. I look forward to hearing from you again soon and hope you will use feedback to permit correspondance.
