What a very moving post. Every time I read something like that it brings back memories of the island, of the times we had there, of the people we met which I, for one, have never forgotten. We are going back next March for a reunion, which I am very much looking forward to, I think it will be a very emotional experience for all of us. We also have a reunion every year somewhere in the UK, but to return to Gan will be entirely different. I wouldn't miss it for the world. Thank you for putting some of my thoughts into print.
Smashing post John,,I have been back 3 times,03/04/05,I will regret for the rest of my life that I did not try to go back in the 80s or 90s.You would not know the place now,but I think your good idea would maybe be possible now as I am being lead to believe that cruise ships are going to start using the place.I dont think the military will ever return,but who knows what is around the corner looking at the state of the world....Larry
