Nah never in the services. I lived in North Warnborough many moons ago (as in 1971 to 1974), which as you know is just down from the base. My neighbour then who is still a very good friend was a helicopter pilot on the base, now retired. I still drive past the old base - looking a bit bedraggled these days and it was going to be closed but I think Iraq changed all that, thank God or Mohammed, or Teddy Bear, or Buddha (whichever God we are meant to pay respect to in the UK these days).
