Where are they now?

Anyone know what happened to the likes of .................
Taff Gregory, John Lazzari, Geordie Weatherall, Pete "Paddy" Coleman, John "Tiny" Scott, Timber Wood? All '69/'70 Gan.

Re: Where are they now?

You mentioned Pete Coleman, would that have been the same Pete Coleman who worked at SCC RAF Hendon in 1976 and who was my "Best Man" in the same year?

Re: Where are they now?

Can't help you with the Hendon bit George. I lost touch with most of the rugby team after Gan. From what I remember, Pete was a Winger, would run at a wall if it was needed and like most of us at the time, enjoyed his Tiger! I remember him getting savaged by Noddy at a billet bar Christmas '69!! This the same guy?

Re: Where are they now?

Sounds like him, he had swarthy skin moustache and tight black hair as I remember!!

Re: Where are they now?

Your description sounds spot on to me! What happened to the fella?

Re: Where are they now?

Haven't seen him since that day in 1976!

Re: Where are they now?

I would be interested in contacting anyone who played in the 1970 Rugby FEAF championship for Gan.I was the condom carrier for the entire team, not sure if anyone used them!
Would love to hear from anyone who was on Gan between April 69 to April 70. I worked at MCS but was attached from GEF.

Re: Where are they now?

Hello Martin,,trying to remember you.I was ground radar jan69/70 and was good pals with Tony OBrien and remember Pete Coleman tackling a navy monster in one game we played,,did not think either of them would recover but the site of Tiny Scott standing over them seemed to ressurect both of them..Mick[ginger]Grant introduced me to the game,thats a polite way of saying forced and encouraged by threats..Would you know where Granty ended up.I know him and Mick DeBell dismantled the radars at Western Hill[Penang]71/72,but seems to have gone missing since..Larry
