35 years ago

Back in civvies
 
35 years ago this week, I became a civilian after serving for six years in the Royal Air Force.  My last week was a demob course for driving in Liverpool, a week I'll never forget. 

The instructor was more accustomed to teaching HGV drivers with years of experience and was not suited to train beginners. Learning to drive while avoiding bricks, planks, and rubble along the banks of the River Mersey is not to be recommended. I didn't finish the Crash course as the instructor was very abusive to the students. On leaving Liverpool, I returned to my base at RAF Brampton https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAF_Brampton for the last three days of my service period.
